Melbourne, November 20: Reigning Order of Merit champion Gavin Green of Malaysia hopes to make his maiden trip to Australia a memorable one by putting up a strong showing with compatriot Ben Leong at the ISPS HANDA Melbourne World Cup of Golf starting Thursday.
Green and Leong, both making their World Cup debut this week, believe they can work together effectively and produce the fireworks for Team Malaysia when they tee off for the prestigious event at The Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne.
They will be vying for the coveted trophy against 27 other countries, including 2016 champion Denmark made up of Thorbjørn Olesen and Soren Kjeldsen, in the US$7 million event which is celebrating its 59th edition this week.
The 24-year-old Green, who kept his European Tour card for the next season after enjoying a commendable rookie year, is determined put up a performance worthy of his status as the reigning Asian Tour Order of Merit champion in the Melbourne showpiece.
