The event, staged at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne, will incorporate a team format for the first time since 2013. The top-ranked invididuals from 28 different countries were selected, with each player allowed to choose his own partner. The first and third rounds will utilize alternate-shot format, while the second and fourth rounds will be best ball.
Notable pairings besides the Americans include Adam Scott, who teamed with Jason Day to win the team portion in 2013 and this time will represent Australia alongside Marc Leishman. Hideki Matsuyama will team with Ryo Ishikawa for Japan, while newly-minted pro Jon Rahm joins Rafael Cabrera-Bello for Spain.
