Foreign golfers seem to be taking control of the regular PGA Tour and the LPGA Tour, and are doing well on the PGA Seniors Tour. So why shouldn't they do the same in Super Seniors competition?

Don Bies set the pace with his three-under-par 69 as the United States rallied from a slow start Sunday at Sarasota, Fla., to win its third consecutive Chrysler Cup. The U.S. seniors beat the International team in four of eight final-round matches and tied three for a 53.5-30.5 victory at the Tournament Players Club at Prestancia. The Internationals began the day needing to win five matches for a victory, but they won only one. The first seven U.S. players to tee off bogeyed the opening hole.

Patty Sheehan came out strong, came apart and came back Saturday to win the $350,000 Hawaiian Ladies Open in Honolulu. Sheehan, who won her 26th LPGA event, shot a roller-coaster, two-under-par 70 to finish nine under in the 54-hole tournament. She was helped by the erratic putting of Beth Daniel, who finished three strokes behind, and a collapse by third-place finisher Pat Bradley.
