ANDERSEN MATCHES GO DOWN TO FINAL HOLE

With stiff winds and even stiffer competition, all four matches at the international leg of the Andersen Consulting World Championship of Golf came down to the 18th hole on Monday.

Playing it safe with swirling winds and sharp slopes, Nick Price beat Vijay Singh 1-up, Ernie Els bested Frank Nobilo 1-up and Steve Elkington defeated Mark McNulty 1-up as their competitors all bogeyed the 469-yard, par-4 18th.

Greg Norman, who won the Andersen Consulting world title last year, beat Robert Allenby 2-up when Allenby also bogeyed the final hole in the match-play tourney at the River Course at Blackwolf Run in Kohler, Wis.

In other golf news, John Daly continued his comeback with a 6-under-par 66 at the Kahkwa Club and was one stroke off the lead in the $300,000 Greater Erie, Pa., Charity Golf Classic. PGA Tour players Fred Funk and Willie Wood, along with Brian Gay of Florida, were tied for the lead.
