World Cup goes to Mexico next year

The 2002 World Cup team golf event will be played in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico at the Nicklaus Course at Vista Vallarta.

It will be the first significant professional event held at Vista Vallarta, which opened in April. The par-72 course plays to 7,057 yards.

"The World Golf Championships have been contested at some of the world's greatest courses and we are proud to add Vista Vallarta to the list," said PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem, who made the announcement Tuesday.

The World Cup joined the World Golf Championships series in 2000 and was won in Argentina by the American duo of Tiger Woods and David Duval, who will defend their title next month in Japan.

Players from 18 countries qualified for this year's World Cup by virtue of their standing in the World Golf Rankings. The other six became eligible at last week's Davidof Nations Cup.

When the World Cup is played next year, Mexico will be the seventh country to have hosted a World Golf Championships tournament.

The other three WGC events are the Match Play Championship, NEC Invitational and American Express Championship, which was canceled this season in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
