Tabuena, Que finish last in World Cup

The Filipino pair of Miguel Tabuena and Angelo Que finished the final round where they started the day before, last place, as they ended a disappointing partnership in the World Cup at Kingston Heath on Sunday.

The duo shot a final round 2-under-par 70 and was in last place in the 28-team field featuring two-man tandems from 28 countries.

They posted a four-round total of 291 (77-67-77-70) and their three over par aggregate was the only score that failed to break par among the contestants.

The pair was 23 strokes behind winner Denmark whose team of Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen won the event by four strokes over China, France and Sweden.

The pair combined superbly in the fourball-best-ball format for a closing six-under 66 to finish on 20-under 268, four shots clear of China (65), France (63) and the United States (66).

Chinese duo Ashun Wu and Haotong Li crept within one stroke early on the back nine before Kjeldsen holed a birdie putt to restore the buffer. A Victor Dubuisson birdie at the par-three 15th propelled France to just one shot back. And this time Olesen answered with a birdie putt playing three holes behind the French to ward off the leaderboard danger.

Sweden’s Alex Noren and David Lingmerth also crept within a shot after firing a brilliant 10-under 62 in the final round fourball to eventually finish fifth at 15-under. But Olesen’s hot putter delivered birdies at the 13th, 14th and 15th holes to stretch the lead again.
