Tickets are still available for a revolutionary golf tournament being held near to St Albans this weekend.
Ties have already been drawn-up for the GolfSixes competition being held at Centurion Golf Club.
England golfer Chris Wood said: “With the countries who are taking part, there could be some pretty intriguing rivalries thrown up, and I’m sure we’ll see plenty of passion from the players and the fans.
“It’s a fresh, new format, and I think that’s very welcome in golf right now.”
Chris will be playing alongside Andy Sullivan, up against Denmark, The Netherlands, and India on Saturday, May 6 for a place in the knockout stages.
Of the four groups, the top two teams will progress to the knockout stages.
All of the knockout stages - the semi and quarter finals, the third and fourth place play-offs, and the final - will be contested on Sunday, May 7.
