    Background: The Canada Cup gold competition ... At Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico, June 3, Sam Snead and Jimmy Demaret pushed the United States towards a second straight team victory. With 18 holes to play, they had an eight-stroke lead over Kel Nagle and Peter Thomson (Australia).

    Snead scored a two-under-par 70, his third below par round, for a 54-hole total of 204. Six strokes behind lay Thomson, who took 70.

    The lowest round of the day was that of Irishman Christy O'Connor. He played a 68, four under par. His card showed six birdies, and placed him fourth in the individual standing with a 54-hole tally of 213.

    United States are the present Cup holders. Thirty-three countries -each with two players - are represented. June 4 was the last day, with the U.S. and Australia fighting it out. This is the ninth international gold classic.
