Royal Melbourne to host World Cup in Nov.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - The World Cup of Golf will be held at Royal Melbourne in November the week after the Australian Masters.

The International Federation of PGA Tours said in a statement Sunday that the World Cup will be held from Nov. 21-24 at the sand-belt course which hosted the 2011 and 1998 Presidents Cups.

That's the week following the Australian Masters on the same course, and where U.S. Masters champion Adam Scott is expected to defend his Australian Masters title.

The World Cup will use an individual, stroke-play format and a team component akin to that to be used for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro when golf returns to the event.
