NEWS Release
Thomas Detry and Thomas Pieters battled the brutal conditions to move Belgium into a share of the lead with South Korea at the halfway stage of the ISPS HANDA Melbourne World Cup of Golf.
With torrential rain and gusting winds sweeping across the Metropolitan Golf Club, the 28-team field could have been forgiven for thinking they were playing in the wrong hemisphere on Friday, with just four teams – Belgium, Italy, Mexico and Scotland - managing to break par in the notoriously tricky foursomes format.
Detry and Pieters carded a one under 71, one better than Korea, to join Ben An and Si Woo Kim at the top of the leaderboard on ten under, with four teams – England (74), Italy (71), India (72) and Malaysia (73) – in a tie for third place two shots off the lead.
Mexico’s two-under score was the best of the day and propelled Abraham Ancer and Roberto Diaz into seventh spot in seven under, while Scotland’s 71 saw them join host nation Australia on six under in a share of eighth.
The tournament switches to four-balls for Saturday’s third round, with the final round moving back to foursomes on Sunday.
Player Quotes
BELGIUM – Thomas Pieters: “I think we played very solid.  Both of us were pretty much on our games.  The short game was pretty good today.  Thomas holed out great from six, seven feet in and I made some really good recovery bunker shots so we saved ourselves some good pars.
"We'll try to do the same on Sunday as we did today, but tomorrow's a whole different game.  We did well yesterday in four-ball, we've just got to get going a bit earlier than we did yesterday and hopefully have another couple good ones.”
Thomas Detry: “To be honest, I didn't think we would finish today.  Waking up this morning and getting here, it was just like horizontal rain.  So wind got up, wind didn't drop, so it was just a tough day all around.  Yeah, happy it's done and I'm excited for my shower tonight!”
SOUTH KOREA
 Ben An: “It's such a tough format with this wind and rain, so I think we did well to shoot under par today. It was a cold day, so it was like just trying to hold on and have some fun .  We tried to stay focused and it's such a tough wind and rain, so it was really -- it was chaos, so I think we kept in the game and never got out of it.
