Chris Wood is desperate to perform well for England in this weeks World Cup and get a few people off his back.Wood has come in for criticism in some quarters after selecting Andy Sullivan as his partner in Melbourne, despite Ryder Cup team-mate Lee Westwood being set to make the trip.Westwood had been due to make his debut in the event after being chosen by Masters champion Danny Willett, but with Willett pulling out to protect a back injury, Wood took his place as the next highest eligible player in the world rankings.Under tournament rules, Wood was also able to select his partner and opted for Sullivan after the pair bonded during their Ryder Cup debuts at Hazeltine.Speaking after a closing 65 in the DP World Tour Championship, Wood said: Its as good as Ive played on a Sunday for a while so its nice to get a bit of form going into the World Cup, get a few people off my back.Dannys the one that pulled out. They know fine well the situation. Ive got so much respect for Lee as a golfer but I just feel as a team I will gel a little better with Sully.I went down the rankings, I did it in as fair a way as I could. There wasnt this much fuss when Danny jumped myself, Tyrrell [Hatton, Fitzy [Matt Fitzpatrick] and Sully to go to Lee.I totally understand Lees frustration, youre ready to go, but myself and Sully are hungry to go and play and surely thats what you want.We played the first practice day at Hazeltine together, me, him, Sergio [Garcia] and Rory [McIlroy], and we really gelled that week.We both played one foursomes and the singles and were in courtesy cars a lot together. We got a bit closer that week and have chatted about our Ryder Cup experience among ourselves and were motivated to go and win it next week.Whatever happens at Kingston Heath is at least certain to be more enjoyable than Woods previous visit to the course in Melbourne.I played about four holes when I was in the England squad as an amateur and got stung in the eye by a bee and had to come off, added Wood, who coincidentally had Willett as one of his team-mates on the trip.For me those sort of courses are as good as it gets, Im so excited to get down there and play it. Its almost like a US Open-style, you play aggressive to certain areas but you can putt it off greens and put yourself in position Z. Zaza Pachulia Jersey
