Vaughan McCall of Gore, Blair Riordan of Takaka, Josh Munn of Manawatu and Tyler Hodge of Levin have been selected to represent New Zealand in the inaugural Ten Nations Cup golf tournament in South Africa in February.

The Ten Nations Cup, which will be staged at the Kingswood Golf Estate in George from February 6th to 9th, is an amalgamation of the Four Nations Cup and the Southern Cross Trophy.

The Four Nations Cup was last staged at The Hills near Arrowtown where the New Zealand team of Ben Campbell, Ryan Fox, Mathew Perry and McCall finished runners-up to Australia.

It was a biannual event and is now played over four rounds of stroke play between 10 countries.

The teams confirmed at this stage include Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, England, Scotland and Ireland with three more teams to be added in time.
