Goodwill Trophy teams completed

Retief Goosen has selected Australians Peter Senior and Paul Sheehan along with Indian Jeev Milkha Singh to complete his Rest of the World team for next week's Goodwill Trophy against Europe and the U.S.

Britain's Colin Montgomerie captains an eight-man team selected from the Ryder Cup countries in the inaugural matchplay contest which will take place at the Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen next Monday and Tuesday.

"With the announcement of Peter, Paul and Jeev as the final members of the...team...I am confident that we will put up a very strong challenge for the Goodwill Trophy," South African Goosen said in a statement released on Wednesday.

"This innovative new event will definitely require a good blend of skill and experience and I am happy that this squad has these attributes in abundance."

Singh won the European Tour's Volvo Masters at Valderrama 10 days ago, while Senior offers the experience of nearly 30 years as a professional.

The tournament is a joint venture between Mission Hills and the Celtic Manor Resort and will be played next year on the new Ryder Cup course in Wales.

Rest of the world - Retief Goosen (South Africa, captain), Michael Campbell (New Zealand), Zhang Lianwei (China), KJ Choi (South Korea), Thongchai Jaidee (Thailand), Peter Senior (Australia), Paul Sheehan (Australia), Jeev Milkha Singh (India).
