WASHINGTON (Darlene Superville/AP) — President Barack Obama and his most famous golf partner, Tiger Woods, got together again, but at the White House instead of on the course.
Obama honored a team of American golfers who last year defeated an international team to win their fifth straight Presidents Cup, a victory that was clinched by Woods.

RIDGEDALE, Missouri (AP) — Jay Haas will be going to the Presidents Cup for the fourth straight time, and this time he'll be giving the speeches.
The PGA Tour selected Haas to be the U.S. captain for the 2015 matches in South Korea in what amounts to a role reversal. After three years as an assistant captain to Fred Couples — all three U.S. victories — Haas will in charge and Couples will be his assistant.
Nick Price was selected to return as captain for an International team that has one only once since this event began 20 years ago.

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.

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Fred Couples, the coolest guy in golf, never really looked that way until he stood on the edge of the 18th fairway Sunday and saw everything going his way.
The Americans needed only one more point to win the Presidents Cup.
And there was Tiger Woods, who has a history of delivering the winning point, in the middle of the fairway at Muirfield Village, where he has won a record five times.
The Presidents Cup ended just the way it always does.
