Marc Leishman and Cam Smith have a lot to do at the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf this week.
The Victorian and Sandbelt-loving Queenslander are already more familiar with their edges than their 27 rival teams at the original Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne.
They are also in shape, great friends and have the lowest combined world rankings of any team present this week.
But more, after a second practice session today, under the expert guidance of the Metropolitan member and the new amateur musician David Micheluzzi of Australian Open, they have already clearly understood the potentially problematic combinations of four talents.
With every game playing a different brand of balls, it is often a mystery who will use which ball and when that format is played on Friday and Sunday.
But that – and more – is a non-issue for the Aussie team that characterizes the fading Leishman and prefers Smith.
"I'll take a few gaps, which means all par-3s," said Leishman.
"It was a pretty easy decision, to be honest, there are a few holes that go pretty sharp from left to right, all of which are equally, and a few that go from right to left, which are weird. well set up (for us).
"Hopefully we can use it and, yes, have a good week."
Leishman said on the par-fours, he would turn away with Smith's Titleist balls to give the Queenslander the best chance on approaches. He said he would use his own Callaways on par-threes.
It may sound simple, but it is a possible problem – and one that is almost guaranteed will undo a few teams.
Leishman and Smith, good friends of the job, and their caddies, dear friends in Florida, will have anything but a good time this week.
But Leishman, who will be remarkably watched by his sister, Kristy White, for the first time at a tournament, said that no one should confuse that filthy look at what is happening internally.
"We (have) similar personalities outside the golf course, but we are both very determined (and it is) a pretty good combination," he said.
& # 39; We will, I think, look relaxed. Hopefully things will go our way and play well and have fun.
"But do not be mistaken if it seems like we're having too much fun, we're very determined and competitive people and I think that's okay with us."
