Shenzhen, China, Nov 21 (UNI) An off-colour Jyoti Randhawa will just focus on making pars and leave the rest to in-form team mate Jeev Milkha Singh during the Golf World Cup slated to begin here on November 27.

''I just need to keep making pars and he'll do the rest,'' Randhawa said.

''It's a good team and we hope to do well. It is different playing in the World Cup as there is more pressure as you're playing for the country and there is a lot riding on it. It's a great event and I'm looking forward to it,'' he added.

Randhawa has been playing professional golf with Jeev since the 1990s, and the Delhi pro believes that experience will help to strike up an effective partnership during the mega event.

''We're comfortable being around each other, we are regularly having meals together on Tour. He's a funny guy as well and I hope we don't take it onto the golf course! We will certainly focus on our game and I'm looking forward to partnering him,'' he said.

Randhawa has previous experience of playing in the World Cup, having featured in the team of 2005 that ended ninth to register India's best ever finish.

However, Jeev will be making his debut and is excited at the opportunity to represent the country at such a prestigious event.

''We are very excited, we are very strong as a team,'' Jeev said.

Jeev is enjoying the best form of his career at the moment. He was Asian Tour's number one in 2006 and virtually assured of this season's Order of Merit title after bagging the Barclays Singapore Open last week.
