Tiger Woods goes 3-0 as captain at Presidents Cup
Tiger Woods did his best to lead by example at the Presidents Cup, winning all of his matches and capping his playing week with a singles victory over Abraham Ances. Woods, 43, never trailed in the match at Royal Melbourne, building a 3-up lead through 15 holes and then closing it out with a 20-footer for birdie at the 16th hole to dispatch the rookie from the International team who came in 3-0-1 during the competition. As the ball approached the hole, Woods took off his cap and made his way to congratulate Ancer.
The overall match was anything but finished. Woods' win brought the Americans within 10-9, with 15.5 points needed for victory. The United States has lost the competition just once in 12 previous events, at Royal Melbourne in 1998, when Woods was just 21 and Jack Nicklaus was the captain. For the week, Woods went 3-0, winning a four-ball and foursomes match on Thursday and Friday. After sitting out Saturday's double session, he came back with the singles win, and now he is 7-2 in that format.
