Sandy Lane to host 2006 World Cup

Bridgetown:

The Sandy Lane resort and golf course will host the World Cup of golf next December. The event will feature the world's top 18 golfers competing for a purse of $3.3 million, organizers said on Friday. Tiger Woods was married at the Sandy Lane resort last year. "We chose Barbados because it is a great golfing destination and it has many of the attributes we are looking for,'' said Jack Warfield, vice president of the World Golf Championship. Twenty-five teams, including the top three teams from each of the World Cup qualifying matches in Mexico and Asia, will compete in the December 4-10 tournament. Last month, Stephen Dodd and Bradley Dredge of Wales won the World Cup, a stroke-play event that completes the World Golf Championships season. (AP)
