Rory picks G-Mac

VICTORY at Sandwich was not enough to get Darren Clarke onto Ireland's World Cup team.

Rory McIlroy has chosen Graeme McDowell as his partner for Mission Hills Golf Club in China next November.

As Ireland's top world-ranked player, world No 4 McIlroy got to pick. "G-Mac's next highest in the rankings so it will be me and him again," he said.

McIlroy and McDowell finished second at the most recent World Cup two years ago and played together at the Vivendi Trophy and the Ryder Cup.
