The 2013 ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf is a golf tournament that was played 21–24 November at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia. It was the 57th World Cup. The format changed from being a team event to being primarily an individual event with a team component.[2] Sixty players from 34 countries competed in the individual tournament and 26 teams (two-player combined score) competed for the team prize. The total purse was US$8 million, $7 million for the individual competition and $1 million for the teams.[1] The event was a 72-hole stroke play tournament.[2] Official World Golf Ranking points were award for the first time in the World Cup.[2]

Australia's Jason Day shot a final round 70 to win the individual tournament.[3] Day teamed with Adam Scott to win the team prize.[4][5][6]

Qualification[edit]

The field was based on the Official World Golf Ranking on 23 September 2013.[7] The top 15 players in the rankings were eligible with a limit of four players per country. After the top 15, players were eligible with a limit of two players per country until the field of 60 players was filled.[2] The individual portion was similar to what will be used at the 2016 Summer Olympics, except that England, Scotland, and Wales fielded teams instead of a single Great Britain team in the Olympics.[2]
