Montgomerie and Warren fair way off the pace
Sunday 10 December 2006
Scotland's bid for a first World Cup title was in danger of fading away in the third round in Barbados yesterday. Three shots behind the overnight leaders, Argentina, going into the Saturday fourballs, Colin Montgomerie and Marc Warren could manage only two birdies in the first seven holes at Sandy Lane.
It took Montgomerie and Warren until the fifth hole to record their first birdie, but Montgomerie also birdied the seventh to lift his team to 10 under par. That was good enough for a share of third place, but left them five shots behind Argentina's Romero and Angel Cabrera.
Italy's Francesco Molinari and Emanuele Canonica had stormed into second place after racing to the turn in 30, a figure bettered by the American team of Stewart Cink and JJ Henry, with 29.
Pre-tournament favourites England lay seven shots off the pace at eight under par.
