Bel­gium fa­vored to win World Cup

San Antonio Express-News (Sunday) - - Sports -

Thomas Pi­eters and Thomas Detry have po­si­tioned Bel­gium as strong fa­vorites for their first World Cup of Golf vic­tory. Pi­eters and Detry take a five-stroke lead into the fi­nal round at Metropoli­tan on Sun­day which will be played in the four­somes (al­ter­nate shot) for­mat.

It will also be played un­der cloudy skies and pe­ri­ods of driz­zle, as has most of the 72hole tour­na­ment. The weather was at its worst on Fri­day, when driv­ing rain and cold tem­per­a­tures had some golfers say­ing they had never played in more dif­fi­cult con­di­tions.

Mex­ico’s Abra­ham Ancer, who won last week’s Aus­tralian Open, and his part­ner Roberto Diaz, are one of the teams tied for sec­ond. The oth­ers are An­drea Pa­van and Re­nato Para­tore of Italy and South Korea’s Byeong Hun An and Si Woo Kim.
