Adam Scott and Jason Day are set to join forces at the US PGA Tour's Zurich Classic in April in an effort to establish a formidable partnership for the Presidents Cup in Melbourne.
The Australian former world No.1s plan to link up at the two-man teams event, which is held in New Orleans two weeks after the Masters.
Scott's ball-striking brilliance and Day's world-class short game could be a lethal combination, particularly during the foursomes (alternate shot) rounds at TPC Louisiana.
Another benefit of the two major winners linking up is that the Zurich Classic has teams play two rounds each of four-ball and foursomes - both formats used at the biennial Presidents Cup.
The Presidents Cup will be played at Royal Melbourne in December and will feature golf greats Tiger Woods (America) and Ernie Els (International) as rival captains.
Day confirmed he would partner world No.30 Scott, who will be making his Zurich Classic debut.
Scott and Day previously teamed up to win the World Cup of Golf teams title in 2013, at Royal Melbourne.
"We had a brief chat about playing together at Zurich and I can't wait," world No.10 Day told AAP.
"I'm glad we're doing it and I think Scotty and I will make a very good team."
It is believed four-time major winner Els has encouraged International team hopefuls - who hail from a mix of nations excluding the US and Europe - to play practice rounds together on their respective golf tours as a means of bonding.
In 12 editions of the lopsided Presidents Cup, the Internationals have recorded just one win (1998) and one draw (2003).
Scott, who shares the record for most International team appearances (eight), is seen as a team leader and is determined to carry out the wishes of close friend Els.
"Ernie has made his intentions very clear, certainly to me and to all the potential players, how much he wants to improve our chances as a team," Scott said.
"I'm certainly looking for the Internationals to prepare the best they can for the Presidents Cup.
"If we're serious about challenging the US team, we can't just show up this year; we need to prepare."
