    TAIWAN WAS LEADING AT THE CLOSE OF YESTERDAY'S PLAY, WITH HSEIGH YUNG-YO AND HSU CHI-SAN AT 416 LYING TWO STROKES AHEAD OF THE UNITED STATES PAIR AFTER 54 HOLES. HSIEH, THE ASIAN CIRCUIT CHAMPION, AND HSU THE NEWCOMER SEEMED ALL SET TO END U.S. DOMINATION OF THE CUP, AND THE THAI PAIR ONCHUM AND SUWANAPONG, WERE PRESSING THE AMERICANS A STROKE BEHIND.

    MEANWHILE JAPAN AND ARGENTINA ALSO DREW UP TO LEAVE TAIWAN AND THAILAND SHARING FOURTH POSITION.
