Davies and McCumber's mixed success

Britain's women's world No 1, Laura Davies, and the American Mark McCumber fired a second-round seven-under-par 65 to take a one-shot lead in the JCPenney Mixed-Team Classic in Tarpon Springs, Florida yesterday. "I've got an aggressive mind-set," said McCumber after a round that was played on a modified alternate stroke-play format. "We're both on the same wavelength. If two players have conflicting styles it can cause some uneasiness. But I just giggle when she pulls out the driver. I think it's neat." Davies and McCumber are 16 under for the two rounds at the Innisbrook Resort Copperhead Course, one stroke in front of Val Skinner and Jay Delsing, who had a 67. Five teams were tied for third, another stroke back. Of that group, Carin Hjalmarsson and Doug Martin had the best round - a 64 - while Vicki Goetze and Steve Stricker and Barb Thomas and Steve Jones had 65s. The winning team will share just over pounds 212,000
