USA win President's Cup

Woods was the star man as Team USA defeated the International Team 18.5-15.5, the World No1 notching the winning points, at the President's Cup for the eighth time on Sunday at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.

Woods' victory was all the more special for Couples, who announced that this President's Cup is his last as Team USA's captain. The 54-year-old Couples has served as coach for the last three President's Cup and previously played in four.

Things got a little dicey for Team USA down the stretch. Leading the International Team 14-8 entering Sunday's Singles, the lead fell to 17-14 before Woods defeated Richard Sterne 1 up to clinch the championship.

It's the third time in his illustrious career that Woods has clinched the President's Cup for the US. His two-putt par on No. 18 provided the winning margin. Other US wins during the final singles round came from Hunter Mahan (3 & 2 over Hideki Matsuyama); Jason Dufner (4 & 3 over Brendon de Jonge) and Zach Johnson (4 & 2 over Branden Grace).

The International Team's victories came from Jason Day (6 & 4 over Brandt Snedeker); Graham DeLaet (1 up over Jordan Spieth); Adam Scott ( 2 & 1 over Bill Haas); Erine Els (1 up over Steve Stricker); Marc Leishman (1 up over Matt Kuchar); Charl Schartzel (2 & 1 over Keegan Bradley) and Angel Cabrera (1 up over Phil Mickelson). Webb Simpson and Louis Oosthuizen halved their match.

The President's Cup will return in 2015 as it makes its debut in Asia at the Jack Nickalus Golf Club Korea in Incheon, South Korea.
