Tiger Woods shined with his best golfing talents on Sunday. ESPN reported on Oct. 6, 2013, "U.S. takes fifth Presidents Cup in row." Tiger Woods delivered the winning point to clinch victory for the United States. This was the third straight Presidents Cup that Woods won the cup-clinching match.
Although it appeared Woods' back flared up on him in the final hour at Muirfield Village, he nevertheless managed to hold on to beat Richard Sterne, 1 up, to give the Americans the 18 points which they needed to win the Presidents Cup for the fifth straight time.
Woods commented, "It was a team effort this whole week." He went 4-1 for the best record of any of the players. The matches ended without going to Monday, with the United States 18½ and International 15½. Rain, which had interrupted the matches during the week and made the course unusually soft, did not deter Woods and his team from shining.
USA Today has reported, "Tiger gets clinching point as USA wins Presidents Cup." World No. 1 Tiger Woods clinched the outright victory Sunday for the Americans in Presidents Cup, with his victory against Richard Sterne coming on the 18th hole. The USA has won the last five matches and and now leads the series, 8-1-1. Fans were excited to see Woods come alive and play at his best as usual for the Presidents Cup.
