What happened at the World Cup of Golf?

Belgium held off a late challenge from hosts Australia to win the World Cup of Golf in Melbourne.

The pairing of Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry had a five shot lead going into the final foursomes at The Metropolitan Golf Club.

But the home duo of Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith cut that to two as they gave the Aussie crowd hope of a second win in five years.

Belgium, though, signed for a 68 and finished the week at 23 under – three shots ahead of Australia and the Mexican pair of Abraham Ancer and Roberto Diaz.

Keeping their cool down the stretch, Detry produced one of the shots of the week as he crashed a drive into the middle of the final fairway to leave Pieters with just a short wedge in.

Pieters returned the favour, leaving his approach three feet away and a tap-in winning birdie putt for Detry.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
