Rod Perry and Jeff Sorenson contributed birdies on their last four holes Saturday and the Americans took a 10 1/2-5 1/2 lead over Great Britain & Ireland in the PGA Cup.

FASHION HAZARDS

These golfers weren't smoking anything when they picked out their outfits. But you might think otherwise when you see what they wore.

Perry, who won the PGA Professional National Championship this year, nearly holed out for eagle from a bunker on the 13th hole and chipped in for birdie on the 15th. Sorenson made seven birdies in their 3-and-2 fourballs win over Nick Brennan and Gareth Wright.

The teams split the morning foursome matches at Slaley Hall. Greig Hutcheon and Scott Henderson of GB&I had an 8-up lead at the turn before winning, 6 and 5. The Americans halved the next fourballs match and won the other two.

The PGA Cup, for club professionals, ends Sunday with 10 singles matches.
