Australia, England, S Korea share lead at golf World Cup

Thomas Detry and Thomas Pieters celebrate a birdie during the final round

Scottish duo Russell Knox and Martin Laird are five off the pace after an opening-round 67, while Wales' Stuart Manley and Bradley Dredge are second-bottom in the 28-team event after a combined two-under 70. The first and third days will be fourball play and the second and final days foursomes.

"Scores were pretty good today so I'm happy we're tied for the lead".

"We are mindful of that".

"We were seven back with a few holes to go and then had those three birdies in a row and now we're four back and it's not over". "It would be nice to prove everyone right".

He was rushed for emergency surgery but all he was anxious about when recovering at hospital was whether he would miss a trip to play a tournament in the United States. "I think we saved each other pretty good".

"Gavin calmed me down after I was really nervous on the first hole, so that was great", said Leong.

Ryder Cup team-mates Ian Poulter and Tyrrell Hatton combined for a 62, ten under par, to give England a share of the lead after the opening round of four-balls at the World Cup of Golf in Melbourne.

Golf has always been a family affair for Green, who dedicated his maiden Asian Tour win at the Mercuries Taiwan Masters in October a year ago to his late grandfather, who died two weeks prior to the event.

Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen proved the flawless blend of flamboyant youth and wily experience to capture the 2016 edition at Kingston Heath Golf Club. Rain is forecast and the winds are expected to howl.

While Australia are the early favourites, Poulter has plenty of World Cup experience and a superb record in team events.

And they both wonder what effect a win in the World Cup of Golf would have on the sport in India.

He has represented England five times and was desperate to play again, approaching 25th-ranked Hatton to pick him as his partner.

"You know when it's like this in Melbourne, especially on a golf course like this, it's going to be tough", Leishman said after he and Australia teammate Cameron Smith finished with 76.

"Obviously on our rankings, we're supposed to finish up there, but sometimes that is hard".

"It was a big step coming from Asia but it's not like I haven't played any European events before", the tall Malaysian told Reuters at Metropolitan's clubhouse on Thursday.

"I'm not making excuses at all, it was the same for everyone ... some guys played really well and there's some good scores out there, just unfortunately not from us".
