Australia backed for golfing glory

Australia have been made firm favourites to claim the World Cup of Golf this week.

Denmark are the defending champions with Thorbjorn Olesen and Soren Kjeldsen looking for back-to-back tirles.

And Olesen is hopeful they can come out on top again.

“It’s such a difficult format to play best ball, foursomes, it’s very tricky and it’s not always the best players that come out on top. It’s a lot to do with obviously chemistry,” he said.

“It’s important that you stay optimistic all the time. There’s going to be bad shots. I mean, both of us are going to hit some bad shots, it’s just the way you come out of it and that’s the important thing, and if you can get out of it, you’ll do very well.”

Despite the Danes’ confidence – home favourites Australia are confident of delivering with Marc Leishman partnering Cameron Smith.

“It will be different, being favourites, for sure. But I think most of it is pressure you put on yourself,” said Leishman.

And Bookmakers are getting behind Australia, making them 4/1 favourites.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “The fans Down Under would love a home win this week and in Cameron Smith they have a bright young talent to feast their eyes upon. Along with Marc Leishman, we think they’re justifiable favourites on home turf this week.”
