12 10:52 Jose-Filipe LIMA/António SOBRINHO - Portugal.
David HOWELL/Luke DONALD - England

The venue will mark the second time only that the World Golf Championships, dating as far back as 1953, has visited Europe and the first time that it has been staged in Portugal.

Donald and Howell are the people I'm personally rooting for, me being from England ;), but the event will see 24 nations battle it out for a share of the very large $4,000,000 prize fund!

Who do you reckon will be victorious out of all the countries competing? Leave a comment and tell me what you think :)

It's hard to say who will do well. There are a lot of good teams: Spain, Australia, Ireland, England, South Africa. I'm glad there are other nations competing too. Maybe I'll get to learn more about those golfers this week.

Well at the moment, according to various articles Amreica and England are current favourites.

I think maybe America might have been labeled a favorite thanks to media hype. Neither of those guys are particularly on a hot streak right now. Arjun Atwal might do really well since he's near the top of the putting stats.
