AUSTRALIAN pair Marc Leishman and Adam Scott are 10 shots off the pace at the halfway mark of the World Cup of Golf tournament at Kingston Heath.
They fired a four-under par 68 in round two in a best-ball format.
But Danish golfing odd couple Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen complemented each other perfectly at, flirting with a rare 59 before settling for a three-shot lead.
They finished a dream day at 12-under-par, three shots clear of China's Wu Ashun and Li Haotong, with first-round leaders Rafa Cabrera Bello and Jon Rahm from Spain a stroke further back in outright third place.
Americans Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker were in a tie for fourth at seven under.
Leishman started and finished his day well with birdies on the first and 18th holes.
"I certainly didn't play the way I would've liked," he said.
"I'm still staying positive, hoping we've saved all of our good stuff for the weekend."
