Call them brats, over the hill, cocky or downright untalented. Most of all, call the Americans winners - as in, winners of the Solheim Cup, after a comeback effort yesterday in Edina, Minn., that brought one of the top prizes in women's golf back to the United States. Led by Wendy Ward's clutch performance against Annika Sorenstam, the United States came from two matches down at the start of the day to beat Europe, 15 1/2-12 1/2, and win back the coveted, 17-inch Waterford crystal cup. Ranked 56th on the LPGA money list, Ward was sent out against the world's best player, Sorenstam, and she played her even through 18 holes.

On the surface, being a Solheim Cup captain for two consecutive competitions would appear to be a difficult task, trying to organize a team and dealing with the emotional highs and lows before, during and after. However, it hasn't been a problem for Patty Sheehan, an LPGA Hall of Fame member and captain of the U.S. Solheim Cup team that will open competition against Europe on Friday at Barseback Golf and Country Club in Malmo, Sweden. "The Solheim Cup is probably the showcase event for all of women's golf in the world," Sheehan said.

U.S. captain Patty Sheehan knew the Solheim Cup was over. She just didn't think it should end quite the way it did. In a bizarre conclusion yesterday, the U.S. conceded the five matches still in progress when Europe clinched the cup by reaching 14 1/2 points. "It went into instant chaos," Sheehan said after the event, which was held in Loddekopinge, Sweden. "I had never experienced that before. Usually, we just sort of play in, and that's it. I can't say, 'Hey, you guys can't quit.

Inspired by chanting fans and a beautiful fall day, Europe rallied yesterday for a 9-7 lead over the United States after two days of play in the Solheim Cup. The Americans entered the second day with a 5-3 lead but simply didn't hole many putts. Of a possible eight points available in morning foursomes (alternate-shot) and afternoon four-ball (better ball), the Americans won only two. England's Laura Davies won, 4 and 3, in alternate-shot and teamed with Trish Johnson to lead Europe back from a 5-3 deficit to a 6 1/2-5 1/2 lead.

On paper, the talent-packed team of U.S. women should have no trouble handling the Europeans once the Solheim Cup gets under way today at Crooked Stick Golf Club outside Indianapolis. Of course, that's exactly what everyone said about the U.S. men last year, shortly before the Europeans thumped them soundly in the Ryder Cup in Detroit. And come to think of it, weren't the U.S. women favored two years ago in the Solheim Cup in Sweden, only to get pummeled, 17 1/2 to 10 1/2, cutting the Americans' lead in the biennial series to 5-3?

Michelle Wie and Cristie Kerr won their Solheim Cup match despite a dismal final two holes yesterday, giving the United States a split in the afternoon foursomes and sending the Americans into today's singles tied with Europe. Each team has eight points; the United States needs 14 to win the Cup for a third consecutive time. Europe needs 14 1/2 points to claim its first victory on U.S. soil. The afternoon matches were not the Americans' finest - there were two big losses, and Wie and Kerr struggled down the stretch.

Juli Inkster saw flags waving, heard chants of "U-S-A!" and felt a lump in her throat on the practice range, the intensity building before the first match yesterday at the Solheim Cup in Carmel, Ind. She gathered all the American players she could find. With their hands together in a collective fist, they broke huddle with a shout that carried them to victory and kept their record perfect on home soil. "Finish!" "That was our key phrase," Paula Creamer said. "They don't remember how you start, but how you finish.

Heather Bowie thought she had blown her chance at the U.S. Solheim Cup team under a flurry of bogeys on the last nine holes at the Wachovia LPGA Classic yesterday. Amid the disappointment and tears, she saw team captain Patty Sheehan "lurking" in the locker room at Berkleigh Country Club. Eventually, Sheehan found her way to Bowie's side. "As soon as she said, 'Are you ready to go to Sweden?' I just started crying - a lot," Bowie said. "I'm speechless for probably the first time in my life.

KOCHI, Japan - Nervous at the start but encouraged by a couple of late birdies, Michelle Wie was 5 strokes off the lead in a men's tournament yesterday and optimistic about making the cut. The 16-year-old Hawaiian was followed by huge galleries during her opening round of 1-over-par 73 in the Casio World Open on the Japan Golf Tour. She had an uneven beginning with three bogeys on the Kochi Kuroshio Country Club course. Wie, who teed off from the 10th hole, regrouped with birdies on the sixth and seventh holes.

ATLANTA - Adam Scott is playing well enough to win the Tour Championship. If he gets some help, he could win a lot more. Scott birdied his last two holes Friday for a 5-under 65 to emerge from a packed leaderboard and take a 1-shot lead over K.J. Choi going into the weekend at East Lake. Scott won the Tour Championship in 2006, the last year when he only had to keep track of the leaderboard. He is No. 19 in the FedEx Cup, making him a long shot to capture the $10 million bonus.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - As the U.S. Opens approach, things could hardly be better for the ladies of golf. The United States has charged back atop the LPGA roster even as the tour becomes more global and its footprint in the United States becomes larger. Americans have won nine of the 13 tournaments this season, including Stacy Lewis' second win of the season, yesterday, when she won the ShopRite LPGA Classic and overtook Korean star Inbee Park as the No. 1 women's golfer in the Rolex Rankings.

BRANDON MATTHEWS was defeated, 5 and 3, by Australia's Oliver Goss yesterday in the U.S. Amateur Championships yesterday, ending the magical run for the Temple sophomore. Goss, an Australian, is a freshman at the University of Texas. Australian Brady Watt also reached the semifinals, along with Canada's Corey Conners and England's Matt Fitzpatrick, marking the first time that an American has failed to reach the final four. To reach the quarterfinals, Matthews had defeated Matt Pinizzotto, 1-up, on Wednesday in the Round of 64 before defeating Gavin Green, 4 and 3, and Charlie Danielson, 3 and 2, on Thursday.

THE HEAD-TO-HEAD duel between Beatriz Recari and Paula Creamer in the final round of the Marathon Classic in Sylvania, Ohio, yesterday, was great theater. Don't be surprised if there's a sequel. Recari rolled in a 12-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole to take the lead for good and hung on to hold off Creamer for her third LPGA Tour title. They started the day tied and spent most of the round trading the lead - as if it were match play. The duel in the heat in suburban Toledo might have been foreshadowing for when both players participate in next month's Solheim Cup at the Colorado Golf Club, Recari for the European side and Creamer for the United States.

ATLANTA - With his golf ball one-third submerged in shallow water in the lake bordering the 17th hole at East Lake Golf Club, Bill Haas' hopes of winning two titles Sunday and millions of dollars seemed dashed. "I had to hit a decent shot. Definitely some luck was involved," Haas said of his third shot on the second sudden-death playoff hole of the Tour Championship, the finale of the FedExCup Playoffs. With his playoff foe, Hunter Mahan, facing a 25-footer for birdie, Haas blasted through the water and knocked his ball to two feet, saved par, and forced a third playoff hole when Mahan 2-putted for par. "It was an all or nothing shot," Haas said.

ATLANTA - Aaron Baddeley wanted to make a good impression on Greg Norman with hopes of being picked for the Presidents Cup. He wound up impressing a lot of people Saturday in the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Baddeley holed out for eagle on the fourth hole and then lit up the back nine of East Lake with four straight birdies on his way to a 6-under 64 that put him atop the leader board with Hunter Mahan. Mahan holed a birdie putt just over 20 feet on the par-3 18th for a 66. They were at 9-under 201, both poised to capture a meaningful cup - even if it isn't the same one. Mahan is No. 21 in the FedEx Cup and didn't think he had a chance at the $10 million prize at the start of the week.
