Cape Town - The best golfers on the planet are
ready to put on one final show before the end of the year at this week's
Hero World Challenge.
The unofficial PGA Tour event, hosted by Tiger Woods in benefit of
his foundation, has once again attracted a star-studded field.
Sixteen of the 23 best players in the world will descend on the
luxury Albany resort in the Bahamas, and the official pairings tell
their own story of the great golf we have in store.
For European fans, the pairings of Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson,
and Jon Rahm and Alex Noren, make for must-see viewing, while the duos
of Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson
promise some real fireworks too.
The pairing of Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele represent two of
the brightest stars in the game, while Masters champions Patrick Reed
and Bubba Watson will no doubt be swapping Augusta stories.
The final pairing of Jason Day and Bryson DeChambeau boast no fewer
than six victories between then in 2018, so don't be surprised if
Sunday's winner emerges from that duo.
There are no South Africans in this year's field.
