Golf - World Cup

Two-man national teams compete in a annual strokeplay tournament. The event was founded in 1953 by a Canadian, John Jay Hopkins, and ran under the name of the Canada Cup until 1967, when it became the World Cup. 
Until 2000, each man competed as an individual and their two scores were added together. Since 2000, there have been alternate rounds of Foursome and Fourball play to make the World Cup a true team event.

* Tournament held over 36 holes
