Scott picks Leishman for World Cup after Day injury


SYDNEY: Australian Adam Scott on Tuesday picked Marc Leishman to partner him at next month’s World Cup in Melbourne after world No.1 Jason Day pulled out with a back injury. Leishman, ranked 53 in the world, last won an event in December at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa on the European Tour. Ten-time PGA Tour winner Day was planning on returning home to play in the November 23-27 event at the Kingston Heath course for the first time since he and world No.6 Scott won the event in 2013. But he tore a ligament in his back towards the end of the 2016 PGA Tour season, forcing his withdrawal from the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship, and has been advised to rest until next year.
