England's Walker Cup amateur golf pairing of Justin Rose and Gary Wolstenholme finished third in the Simon Bolivar Cup international team tournament at Caracas in Venezuela over the weekend.

Rose (278) and Wolstenholme (285) combined for a four-round aggregate of 563 - five strokes behind Japan's Kentaro Yonekura and Mitsunori Kaneko, whose 18-under-par total was a tournament record, and four adrift of Venezuela.

Ireland's Jody Fanagan and Ken Kearney came fourth, but Scotland's Sam Cairns and Hugh Macdonald finished in 16th position - one place ahead of the Welsh pair of Jamie Donaldson and Rhodri Price.

Rose's 10-under-par total of 278 gave him a share of second place with Wilfredo Morales, of Puerto Rico, and Canada's John Drewery in the individual event, which was won by Yonekura with a 13-under tally of 275.
