International team finalised for Warburg Cup

Des Smyth of Ireland, who became the oldest winner in European tour history this year, and two others were added to the Rest of the World team for next week's UBS Warburg Cup.

The matches, to be played Nov. 16-18 at Kiawah, are patterned after the Ryder Cup with 12-man teams composed of six players between 40-49 and the other six from the 50-and-over group.

The 48-year-old Smyth won the Madeira Island Open this year and won in four decades on the European tour. He played on two Ryder Cup teams.

The other two additions to player-captain Gary Player's team are Ian Stanley of Australia and Denis Durnian of England, who in 1983 set a British Open record at Royal Birkdale with a 28 on the front nine in the second round.

The rest of the international team features Bernhard Langer of Germany, Ian Woosnam of Wales, Nick Faldo of England, Frank Nobilo of New Zealand, Sam Torrance of Scotland, Isao Aoki of Japan, Jose Maria Canizares of Spain and Stewart Ginn of Australia.

The U.S. team features Scott Hoch, Mark Calcavecchia, Loren Roberts, Curtis Strange, Mark O'Meara, John Cook, Jack Nicklaus, Hale Irwin, Raymond Floyd, Tom Watson, Larry Nelson and player-captain Arnold Palmer.

Each member of the winning team gets $150,000. Players on the losing team earn $100,000 each.
