MELBOURNE, Australia -- Denmarks Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen launched an astonishing sub-par blitz on Friday to power into the lead after the second round of the World Cup of Golf.Astonishing because the 12-under par 60 was crafted in southwesterly winds that were even stronger than the opening day at Kingston Heath.The Danes took turns to chip in for eagle in a brilliant front nine of 29, six under par, as they combined superbly in the best-ball format. They reeled off five consecutive birdies on the homeward nine before Kjeldsen holed another birdie putt on the 18th green to put the stamp on the sensational round.Denmarks taming of the wind-swept 6503-meter (7111-yard) layout handed them a three-stroke lead ahead of China, with Spain one further back at the halfway mark of the tournament.Olesen said an eagle and a round of 59 was on his mind when he bombed a 369-meter drive down the 418-meter final hole. And yet it was Kjeldsens touch on the fast green that delivered the last birdie.Im like a train, I arrive on time. Hes the flashy one with an amazing game, Kjeldsen said.This is my favorite type of golf. Youve got to control the ball and look at the angles. You dont just get up and whack it, youve got to think your way around.United States pair Ricky Fowler and Jimmy Walker shot a five-under 67 to be in a four-nation tie for fourth, five shots behind the Danes heading into Saturdays foursomes.The American pair underlined the teamwork required in the fourball -- the best score counts for each hole -- with vastly contrasting efforts at the par-four eighth into the face of the strong wind.Walkers tee shot found a fairway bunker, he barely advanced the ball buried in long grass and promptly picked it up after the fourth shot scurried across the green. He had the luxury of standing back and applauding when Fowlers 15-meter birdie putt disappeared into the cup to pick up another shot for the team.A measure of the quality of the players were the clutch of low scores in such cold and blustery conditions -- a 60, two 64s, four 65s and seven 66s in the 28-nations field.New Zealand and the Netherlands, the third group on to the course, went birdie for birdie in a low-scoring shootout, each team posting eight-under 64s to be five-under for the tournament and in contention for the weekend.The Dutch strategy was typical of most teams; the less experienced Darius Van Driel teeing off first to put the ball safely in play, allowing Joost Luiten to bomb his drives to try to set up shorter approach shots to the quickening greens.That worked out really well. Darius hit great off the tee all day, so we didnt really get into any trouble. After that, we just tried to find the green and hole the putt and we did that pretty good today, Luiten said.New Zealands Ryan Fox and Danny Lee snared 10 birdies against two bogeys as all players in the group fed off each other in the four-pronged attack. Joost looked like he was going to hole everything he looked at. It was a fun day all round, Fox said.Host nation Australias representatives Adam Scott and Marc Leishman must go low in Saturdays foursomes to get close enough to the lead to challenge for the win on Sunday. The pair shared six birdies, but gave two shots back mid-round, for their 68 to be two-under and 10 strokes off the pace.Our best stuff needs to be on the weekend now, Scott said. You never know, its a tough format. Doesnt mean the leaders are going to play any good over the weekend, so, hopefully, we can close the gap.Scots Russell Knox and Duncan Stewart, embarrassed to sit bottom of the leaderboard after an eight-over 78 on the opening day, set about restoring temporarily tarnished reputations. Out in the first group, they grabbed an early birdie before Stewart eagled the par-five eighth hole. And three birdies on the back nine produced a seven-under 65; a 13-shot improvement.

Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes. The 21-year-old has three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating in 24 games with the American Hockey Leagues Oklahoma City Barons this season. BOULDER, Colo. -- For all of Sefo Liufaus tough runs , this one may be the most impressive: His sprint from the locker room back to the field.A hip pointer wasnt going to sideline him in the fourth quarter. Especially not in a game of this magnitude.Liufau threw for 345 yards, rushed for 108 more and scored three touchdowns as No. 12 Colorado beat No. 20 Washington State 38-24 on Saturday in a matchup of unlikely Pac-12 division leaders.Phillip Lindsay added 144 yards rushing and two TDs for the Buffaloes (9-2, 7-1, No. 10 CFP), who can wrap up the Pac-12 South and a spot in the conference title game by beating Utah at home next week.A loss would give the South to No. 15 Southern California, which stayed in the race by routing rival UCLA 36-14 on Saturday night for its seventh straight victory.It means the world to go out there and win, keep our hopes alive, said Liufau, who had 23 carries. Its more fun than anything. Weve been in close games for a long time now. Weve gotten a little older and a little better at being consistent and executing.Liufau briefly left in the fourth quarter only to return and pick up a crucial third-and-short that led to a game-sealing TD run by Lindsay. Liufau becomes the second-ever Colorado QB to throw for 300 and rush for 100 in a game, joining Steven Montez, who accomplished the feat at Oregon in September while filling in for a banged-up Liufau.Sefo got hit on the hip and was hurting, Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said. He played really well. He played like I figured Sefo would.Luke Falk threw for 325 yards and three scores for Washington State (8-3, 7-1, No. 22 CFP), which had won eight in a row. The Cougars can still win the North Division with a victory against No. 7 Washington next week.I just thought we were incohesive as far as doing our jobs, Washington State coach Mike Leach said.Colorados defense stepped up after the Buffaloes fell behind 24-21 late in the third quarter. The next four Washington State drives went like this: Turned the ball over on downs, punt, fumble and interception.We lost focus and in the second half we buckled down, said defensive back Chidobe Awuzie, whose team snapped a 23-game skid against ranked teams.Washington State and Colorado werent really expected to be in position for a division title this late into November. The Cougars were picked to finish foourth in the North during the preseason conference poll and the Buffaloes last in the South.ddddddddddddLeachs gambling mentality cost the Cougars a possible field goal when he went for it on fourth-and-4 in the fourth quarter. Colorado safety Nick Fisher tackled receiver Kyle Sweet short of the first down.Earlier, Leach rolled the dice on fourth-and-1 at his own 41 and Jamal Morrow rewarded his faith by gaining 30 yards. John Thompson later hauled in a 7-yard TD pass to give the Cougars a 24-21 lead.The Cougars finished 2 of 4 on fourth-down attempts.We were close on two of those, Leach said. One of them I probably should have kicked a field goal. In the end, it probably wouldnt have mattered.TAKEAWAYSWashington State: Standout receiver River Cracraft didnt play because of whats been reported as a torn ACL suffered last week. The Cougars made up for his absence by spreading around the wealth. Ten different players caught at least one pass.Colorado: The defense came up big in the fourth quarter with the only two sacks of Falk. This after being dealt a big blow in the first quarter when safety Afolabi Laguda was ejected for targeting.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Buffaloes have dubbed this season The Rise. That should continue in the polls. Hard to see Washington State dropping much after this thriller.1,000-YARD CLUBLindsay went over the 1,000-yard mark for the season, becoming the first Colorado running back to accomplish the feat since 2010.It was a great feeling knowing that I helped my team win, Lindsay said. Ill put my body on the line for them.AIRING IT OUTFalk topped the 300-yard mark for the 23rd time in his career.We had a couple miscues, a couple miscommunications, and who knows how it would be? Falk said. But it didnt happen.UP NEXTWashington State: The annual Apple Cup takes on added importance on Friday. The Pac-12 North title will be at stake.Colorado: Close out the regular season by hosting Utah on Saturday. This game always seems to go down to the wire, with all five games since 2011 decided by a total of 27 points.---This version corrects to Colorado will play Utah on Saturday instead of Friday.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ' ' '
