DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Nobody figured that Tiger Woods, bad back and all, would have to hit a meaningful shot on Sunday at the Presidents Cup.

The International side made sure he had to.

Woods took the lead over the unheralded Richard Sterne with a par at the 16th hole and then had to lag a long birdie putt to within a foot to clinch the United States' fifth consecutive Presidents Cup victory, 18½-15 ½ over the International side.
