WGC-Barbados World Cup

The World Golf Championship Barbados World Cup, likely the closest think to a war between golfing nations, rolls into Barbados this week. Twenty four nations, eighteen of those exempt alongside five qualifying nations and the host Barbados team, will fight in teams of two for world supremacy. The event is definitely not taken advantage of by the United States as Stewart Cink and J.J. Henry will be representing the red, white, and blue. Both players were members of this year's Ryder Cup team, of course that fact may not support a pick of the U.S. teammates.

Though the North American teams look to find victory, that quest will face a major road block when facing several strong European teams. At the top of the list, and Golf Heaven's pick, is team England. The English are represented by European stars Luke Donald and David Howell. Nearby Ireland is also well represented by Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley. The Swedes also look to make a strong showing led by young players Henrik Stenson and CarlPetterson.

Trinidad and Tobago will again be represented by the Ames brothers. PGA TOUR player and PLAYERS Championship winner Stephen Ames, who just returned from a back injury, will play alongside brother and caddy Robert again. Ames was forced to withdraw from the Tour Championship because of his back problem, but always looks forward to playing with his brother Robert in this event. Robert, who may have had a professional golf career of his own, is well respected within the TOUR caddy community and is usually a member of the best caddy/golfer conversation.

Singapore, Italy, and Switzerland qualified by way of the Nations Cup qualifier. Mexico and Jamaica also qualified, but by way of the South American Nations Cup. The Mexican team will be led by Esteban Toledo, a current member of the Nationwide Tour. Toledo is one of golf's mentally strongest players having grown up in a house with dirt floors in Tijuana. The Italian team is led by Francesco Molinari, a European Tour player and brother of Eduardo Molinari.
