The Americans have claimed Golf's Presidents Cup for the fourth time in a row. They beat the Internationals side 18-15 after Sunday's singles in Melbourne Australia.

Tiger Woods won the clinching point for a second straight time. He had played well all week and easily beat Aaron Baddeley with a four-and-three victory.

His teammate Jim Furyk became the fourth player to win all five of his matches, and the bottom half of the lineup was strong enough to give the Americans a win over the Internationals in this lopsided series.

The Internationals have only won this event once, which happened 13 years ago, and they trail in the series 1-1-7.

The Presidents Cup, established in 1994 and held biannually, is a series men's golf matches between a team representing the United States and an International Team representing the rest of the world less Europe. Europe competes against the US in a similar, but considerably older event, the Ryder Cup.
