Rod Perry and Jeff Sorenson, a teaching pro at Columbia Golf Club in Minneapolis, contributed birdies on their last four holes Saturday to win their four-ball match and help the Americans take a 10½-5½ lead over Great Britain and Ireland in the PGA Cup in Hexham, England.

Sorenson made seven birdies in their 3-and-2 four-ball win over Nick Brennan and Gareth Wright.

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