October 10, 1998|From Associated Press

Tiger Woods, Mark O'Meara and John Daly maintained their mastery of the Old Course on Friday with a 3-0 sweep of Japan that set up a battle of unbeatens in the Dunhill Cup at St. Andrews, Scotland.

Woods shot a 2-under-par 70 to beat Katsuma Miyamoto by seven strokes, and O'Meara matched that score for a five-shot victory over Hiroyuki Fujita. Daly beat Nobuo Serizawa, 77-80.

The U.S. will next play Sweden, which stayed unbeaten with a sweep of England.

Zimbabwe will meet South Africa for a place in the semifinals even though they were upset by France and Germany, respectively.

John Morgan of England shot a five-under 67 for the first-round lead of the Transamerica seniors tournament at Napa, Calif.

Morgan used a run of three straight birdies starting at No. 11 at the Silverado Country Club to take a one-shot lead over eight golfers.

Among the eight tied for second was Ray Carrasco, a teaching pro from Irvine.

"It's nice getting used to the ambience of the cameras," said Carrasco, who qualified for the PGA Tour in 1974 at Silverado. "This is my first time in the press room in my career."
