Algarve World Cup Update

Day 2 of the World Golf Championships saw the competing 24 nations deadlocked in a foursomes duel.

Argentina made the record books by shooting an 11 under round of 61, breaking Fiji's Vijay Singh and Dinesh Chand's record set in 2002 by one shot. Their stunning round allowed them to be catapulted from last place to one off the lead.

Despite a struggling start, England's David Howell and Luke Donald, closed the day with a three under round of 69 to be tied for the lead along with Sweden and Wales at -16. Howell and Donald made an impressive finish with three straight birdies, yet this was topped by Wales' Stephen Dodd and Bradley Dredge scoring four straight birdies to finish.

India, who made a spectacular start to the tournament with a 60, could only muster a round of 73, one over par, to drop down to joint seventh.
