MIGUEL Tabuena and Angelo Que of the Philippines came up with a 67 but remained far from the pacesetters as Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen fired an astonishing 60 to take charge after the second round of the World Cup of Golf.
Strong winds continued to pound Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne on Friday but scores were surprisingly much lower than the opener, with the Danes moving to first at 132, three clear of China’s Wu Ashun and Haotong Li, who carded a 65.
Overnight leaders Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Jon Rahm of Spain slipped to third at 136 after a 67 in four-ball.
Tabuena and Que fired seven birdies against two bogeys this time after a dismal first round, but were far from the leaders at 144.
The round was 10 strokes better than the opener, but the Filipinos remained in 26th spot.
"I'm like a train, I arrive on time. He's the flashy one with an amazing game," Kjeldsen said.
"This is my favorite type of golf. You've got to control the ball and look at the angles. You don't just get up and whack it, you've got to think your way around."
Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker of the US carded a five-under 67 to join three others in fourth spot.
Chris Wood and Andy Sullivan of England (66), Francesco Molinari and Matteo Manassero of Italy (66) and France’s Victor Dubuisson and Romain Langasque (67) were also at 137.
The tournament shifts again to foursomes for the third round.
