After the first round of the team world cup, it's a trio that takes the lead at -10. England, Australia and South Korea signed 62 in four balls. France represented by the duo Levy / Lorenzo Vera is 13th after a 66 (-6). The first round of the team world cup played in Australia on the mythical Metropolitan Golf Club course near Melbourne was the scene of a real firework of birdies. Normal when we bring together the best players from 28 nations and make them play in four balls best ball. Each teammate could attack the pitch shamelessly since only the best score on each hole counted. In the end, three teams share the tournament lead at -10. England's Ian Poulter and Tyrrell Hatton, South Koreans Ben An and Si Woo Kim and Australian locals Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith all signed flamboyant 62. Note that only the Koreans conceded a bogey to post this score. Place at the foursome this Friday for the 2nd round. This formula which sees the members of the same camp hitting the same ball alternately should offer a clearer vision as to the complementarity of the teammates. Back to the 4 balls Saturday and the foursome on Sunday. Ian Poulter: "The foursome is a totally different game. The course will be much more difficult tomorrow and Sunday. Basically this week we have 2 days of cool golf and 2 days of stressful golf. "Tricolor side, the day was rather solid. Four birdies to go to the pair Levy / Lorenzo Vera without the slightest hitch. Then three more on the way back. At the start of the 17th (par 4) the French pointed to 7 under par. But a bogey in the last moments of this first round relegates them to the 13th rank.

– The Danish pair holding the title (Olesen / Kjeldsen) post 63 with a small blow of the head. We find at this exact same 4th place, Belgians (Detry / Pieters) and Malaysians (Green / Leong). – The United States has 24 successes in this team world cup. But it will take Matt Kuchar and Kyle Stanley an even more incisive game to claim a new success. The pair made in USA is content with a 66 and 13th place.
