The U.S. team climbed the leader board on Saturday at the World Cup of Golf, but Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker still have a lot of work to do on Sunday if they're to catch Team Denmark. The Danish duo of Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen will enter Sunday with a four-shot advantage at Kingston Heath Golf Club. Thanks to shots like this:
Denmark shot 70 in Saturday's foursomes (alternate shot) to finish at 14 under through three rounds. Here's what Kjeldsen and Olesen had to say after:
Fowler and Walker shot 69 to move into solo second at 10 under. China's Wu Anshun and Li Haotong are in third place at nine under, two shots clear of three teams (Spain, Japan and France) tied for fourth.
The good news for the U.S. duo? On Sunday, the format shifts back to fourballs, where a birdie binge can make up a four-shot deficit in a hurry. The bad news? Denmark shot a fourball 60 on Friday, the best second-round score by four shots.
Denmark is trying to win the World Cup of Golf for the first time. The Americans are seeking their 25th title in the 58th edition of the event, with the last win coming in 2011 from the team of Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland.
