Argentina 3 v USA 0
In the fifth whitewash of the day Argentina ensured a head-to-head with Australia for the group four semi-final spot, leaving the USA to fight it out with Japan for the scraps. Eduardo Romero recorded only the second eagle of the day en-route to a 70 and a two shot victory over Larry Mize. Jose Coceres added eight strokes to his first day effort, but still saw off John Daly by two, and in the final match of the day Angel Cabrera's 68 was too good for Tom Lehman, who posted a 71.
Australia 3 v Japan 0
Australia claimed a 3-0 victory against the Japanese, but the scoreline was not a fair reflection of the contest. Each match was won by just a single stroke, with O'Hern beating Aoki 70-71, Leaney defeating Watanabe 73-74 and O'Malley posting a 69 to the 70 of Nishikawa. The result set up Australia with a deciding match with Argentina for a semi-final berth.
South Africa 3 v Ireland 0
A 3-0 victory for South Africa ended Irish hopes of qualification for the semi-finals and meant the group will come down to a head-to-head battle of Africa between South Africa and Zimbabwe. Des Smyth must be feeling a bit sorry for himself after a 68 following his opening 67 was still not good enough for a point, as David Frost recorded a six-under 66. Retief Goosen defeated Paul McGinley with a birdie at the first extra hole and a 67 by Ernie Els beat Harrington by two.
New Zealand 3 v France 0
Two one shot victories and two shot gap for Grant Waite gave New Zealand a shot at the semi-finals, but they will have to beat South Africa to get there. In the first match won with a score over par, Greg Turner overcame Jeff Remesy with a 73 and Grant Waite posted a 70 to the level par of Raphael Jacquelin. In the final match Michael Campbell birdied the last for a 3-under-par total to defeat Thomas Levet.
Wales 2 v Germany 1
In the tournament's most closely contested match, Philip Price holed a 10-foot birdie putt on the last to clinch victory for the Welsh team. After Ian Woosnam had dispensed of Bernhard Langer in the opening sortie with a 2-under-par 70 the second match went into extra time. As Price made his putt Struver and Park headed to the second extra hole and whilst the German won with a birdie, victory went to Wales.
Scotland 2 v England 1
Scotland recorded their first Dunhill Cup victory over the English after defeat in the nations five previous meetings. A birdie putt at the last for Colin Montgomerie gave him a one stroke victory over Brian Davis while Andrew Coltart recorded a comfortable five stroke win over Jamie Spence. The last match went to extra time and Roger Chapman was able to salvage some English pride, after Gary Orr paid a visit to the Burn at the first.
Spain 2 v Zimbabwe 1
The Spaniards set up a group decider with Sweden after a hard fought victory over Zimbabwe. In the top match Tony Johnstone prevailed by a stroke with a level par 70 and in a titanic middle match Miguel Angel Jimenez also recorded a single stroke victory with a 67 to the 68 of Nick Price. In the deciding match Jose Maria Olazabal recorded a comfortable four shot victory, adding a 67 to his opening 66 to see off Mark McNulty.
Sweden 3 v China 0
A flattering 3-0 victory for the Swedes, led home by a bogey free 67 from Patrik Sjoland.

Skipper Mathias Gronberg ensured maximum points, despite a bogey-bogey finish, posting a one-under-par 71 to the 72 of Lian-Wei Zhang.
