The 2009 Omega Mission Hills World Cup took place from November 26 to November 29 at Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen, China. It was the 55th World Cup. 28 countries competed as two player teams.[1] The team purse was $5,500,000 with $1,700,000 going to the winner.[2] The event was won by Italy with a score of -29.[3]


Qualification and format

The leading 18 available players from the Official World Golf Ranking on September 1, 2009 qualified. These 18 players then selected a player from their country to compete with them. The person they pick had to be ranked within the top 100 on the Official World Golf Ranking as of September 1. If there was no other player from that country within the top 100 then the next highest ranked player would be their partner. If there was no other available player from that country within the top 500, then the exempt player could choose whoever he wants as long as they are a professional from the same country. World qualifiers were held in September. Nine countries earned their spot in the World Cup, three each from the European,[4] Asian,[5] and South American[6] qualifiers. The host country, China, rounded out the field.

The event is a 72-hole stroke play team event with each team comprising of two players. The first and third days are fourball play and the second and final days are foursomes play.[2]
