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.
