Inkster Hurst Team in Womens World Cup


WomenSUN CITY, South Africa - The Women's World Cup of Golf will be contested for the third time this week. The first two years have seen Japan and Sweden claim the title.

However, none of the four players that comprised those two teams will be competing this week.

Sweden's team last year was Liselotte Neumann and women's world No. 1 Annika Sorenstam. This year Carin Koch and Helen Alfredsson will represent the Swedes.

Neumann and Sorenstam won despite stumbling to a 3-over 147 on the final round in 2006. Scotland took second place by posting the lone score in red figures with a 3-under 141. Catriona Matthew shot 3 under, while teammate Janice Moodie was even par in the final round.

Moodie will be joined by Mhari McKay this year for the Scots. France is represented by Stephanie Arricau and Gwladys Nocera, Paraguay's team is Celeste Troche and Julieta Granada, while the United States will be represented by Pat Hurst and Juli Inkster.

The format of this 54-hole competition is 18 holes of foursomes, 18 holes of four-ball and 18 holes of stroke play. The Golf Channel has tape-delayed coverage of all three rounds.

The LPGA returns to action in Hawaii with the SBS Open at Turtle Bay. Joo Mi Kim will defend her title at that event which will be February 15th to 17th.
