Tyrrell Hatton is in Australia this week as he represents England at the Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne.

Hatton will be teeing it up for England alongside Ryder Cup legend Ian Poulter as 28 teams go head-to-head over four days down under.

The format is 72-hole strokeplay. The first and third days are fourball and the second and final days are foursomes, or alternate shot.

Former GMS student Hatton and Poulter have a realistic shot at claiming the title and are one of the favourites to win the 59th edition of the World Cup.

Their main opponents will be Australia's Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith and the USA's pairing of Matt Kuchar and Kyle Stanley.

Hatton told channelnewsasia: "I am fiery and I always give it my best. I think in a team situation you're always trying maybe a little bit harder to make sure you hit better shots.

"I find that this format will be a little bit more relaxing than playing just your own ball.

"Obviously having Ian there, we get on well, so we'll be able to kind of have a chat in between shots depending - well, depends on how bad the shot I've just hit is.

"But no, it will be fine, team events are no problem and I can keep my head on if I need to."
