Louis & Charl team up for World Cup- 22 Nov 2011 00:00:00
US Masters champion Charl Schwartzel and former British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen have been selected to represent South Africa in this week’s World Cup – and will team up for the first time in professional golf.
The two competed as a team as amateurs in the Eisenhower Trophy in 2002.
Oosthuizen said: ‘It's been nearly a decade since Charl and I played in team competition and we've been looking forward to this for some time.’
‘I've always wanted to play in the World Cup. Some of South Africa's greatest players have played in it and won.’
‘I didn't qualify for the Presidents Cup team event in 2009 or last week and when I won the Open there was no World Cup as it's now held every two years.’
The $7.5m competition begins on Thursday.
