Authority figures


SAN FRANCISCO – Interesting element of these matches is a captain's authority or lack of it.

As International captain Greg Norman walked off the ninth green behind the Els-Weir/Furyk-Kim match he passed off his ability to give advice to his assistant captain, Frank Nobilo.

Both captains gave that power to their assistants on Thursday and with the Internationals trailing in three matches the Shark was looking for a momentum change.
