Warburg Cup teams near to completion

South African golf icon Gary Player will captain a Rest of the World team against the United States in the second annual UBS Warburg Cup next month.

The Cup features two 12-man teams competing in a Ryder Cup style format on the spectacular Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club on St Simons Island in Georgia, from November 15-17.

Player will once again be the playing captain of the Rest of the World team, who will be attempting to win the trophy for the first time from a United States side to be led by Arnold Palmer.

The United States won the inaugural Warburg Cup by a narrow score of 12-11 last year. The $3 million Warburg Cup is sanctioned by the European Seniors Tour and each team consists of six players age 40-49 and six players 50 and over. Player will have an impressive array of talent at his disposal, beginning with victorious European Ryder Cup captain Sam Torrance and including Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Ian Woosnam, Eduardo Romero, Barry Lane, Isao Aoki, Rodger Davis, Stewart Ginn, Seiji Ebihara and Denis Durnian.

The United States team is made up of playing captain Palmer, Hale Irwin, Scott Hoch, Tom Lehman, Mark O'Meara, Curtis Strange, Paul Azinger, Fred Funk, Raymond Floyd, Tom Watson and Tom Kite.

The final spot on the United States team will go to the Senior PGA Tour's leading money winner as of this Sunday.
