(AP) The American report card from this Presidents Cup should include the following notation: Plays well with others. Long criticized for being out of sorts when it comes to alternate shot, the Americans handled it easily once again. Led by Tiger Woods and Kirk Triplett, they turned back an International team rally and restored their five-point lead Friday U.S. captain Ken Venturi was asked to explain how the Americans have won nine out of 10 foursome matches. "Can you?" he asked incredulously. "We never play that ... 9-1 is absolutely phenomenal. I thought we'd have a better chance at fourballs than we did the alternate shot, and it just turned upside down." That summed up a topsy-turvy day.

"I think she's a great person to add to their program," said Normal West coach Linda McLellan. "She is a solid player all the way around." Scates helped the lllini Elite Volleyball Club place eighth in fortune for pole; Labonte maybe, than in years past, and that's probably just experience. We're just trying to keep everybody as composed as possible and keep doing things the way we've been doing them." That's exactly what the No. 18 Pontiac team did Friday, with Labonte qualifying fourth out of 48 entries and putting up a number big enough that he didn't have to worry the rest of the day. Heading into Sunday's race, Labonte leads runner-up Dale Earnhardt by 210 points.

"Western Michigan is a great fit for Shannon," said lllini Elite coach Andy Erins. "They are a real blue collar kind of team. Shannon's got that same kind of work ethic. "They've got a really good program. They perennially are at the top of their conference and are pretty competitive nationally." Erins said college volleyball will add technical excellence to Scates' considerable power. "They won't look for her to step in and play right away," Erins said. "They were looking for somebody they could build and mold. She really wants to get better." Scates also was a track star at . Normal West, where she was the Big 12 high jump champion and the Intercity shot put and discus champion. Americans 5-0 deficit by winning four of the five best-ball matches in the morning and seemed to be on their way to an incredible comeback. Just like that, the Presidents Cup was back to where it began the day the Americans comfortably in charge, with a 10-5 lead. They didn't just win. They shot better scores in alternate shot, a rare accomplishment. "I can't explain that," International captain Peter Thomson said. "I saw some amazing golf from the U.S. team. It was a magnificent performance." Perhaps the best explanation came from Woods, who noted that both teams found a way to shift the momentum. "Each team, when they have the onus on them, they seem to come back and play well," Woods said. No one did that better than Woods. After he and Notah Begay were thumped in the morning, they won their first six holes against the slumping star pairing of Els and Vijay Singh and cruised to a 6 and 5 victory qualifies 2nd Winston Cup champ. "We know that every weekend that goes by, the odds are definitely in our favor," Labonte said. "We're just doing what we've been doing. Our philosophy all season has been pretty much the same run hard every race and do as good as we can."
