Manotick, Ontario’s Brad Fritsch has had a very busy year but with pleasure he has added one more event and a very long trip to his 2013 schedule.

On Friday Fritsch made the official announcement via his Twitter account that he will join Brantford, Ontario’s David Hearn at the ISPS World Cup of Golf on November 21-24 at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia as the Canadian team.

As the third ranked Canadian in the Official World Golf Rankings Fritsch will take the place of Graham DeLaet who has had a busy FedEx playoff run and the added duties of playing in the Presidents Cup this week .  Hearn is currently the 2nd ranked Canadian player in the world.

“It’s pretty exciting to have the opportunity,” he told Flagstick about the possibility of playing in the World Cup during an interview last Sunday after his big finish at the Web.com Tour Championship.

As a result of the long trip to Australia, it will be unlikely that Fritsch will play the PGA Tour’s OHL Classic at Mayakoba (Mexico) slated to end the day before activities start in Australia but it’s a sacrifice he’s willing to make to represent his country in international competition.

Brad returns to action next week, October 7-13,  for the playing of the FRYS.com Open in San Martin, California.
