Golf World Cup - final day preview

Spain, four-time winners of the Golf World Cup, are leading the field tied with Australia going into the final day of this year's Mission Hills event.

The Spanish have had a fantastic year elsewhere in the sporting world with the football team's success in Euro 2008 and Rafael Nadal claiming his first Wimbledon title, a Golf World Cup would be a nice addition to the trophy cupboard.

But Australians Richard Green and Brendan Jones' third round of 63 has put the Spaniards under pressure.

The Aussie duo, 11/8 in the betting began the third day four-strokes adrift of the Spanish leaders, but an eagle and eight birdies later, the lead is tied at 22 under-par heading into the final day. Even though the top two are tied, the consistent Spanish pairing are the favourites at 11/10 to take the World Cup back to Spain.

Australia's Richard Green, when asked of the day three performance: "I'm not surprised that we're in contention because it feels very good to be out there with Brendan. We both feel very proud to represent Australia."

Thursday - Germany's Martin Kaymer and Alex Cejka produces a 10 under-par round of 62 on the first day of the Omega Hills Mission World Cup which left Germany in the lead over night.

Friday - M A Jimenez and Pablo Larrazabal shot a 9-under 63 on Friday, and after 36 holes held a four-stroke lead heading into day three. Pre-tournament favourites Sweden, had a better second day finishing 12 under for the tournament.

Saturday - Australia and Spain tied at 22 under-par - Australia had a great Saturday and may have the momentum to take the win, but will be wary of the Spanish who have been consistent over the tournament.

As the Omega Mission Hills World Cup moves towards its closing stages, there's still plenty of betting opportunities.
