MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) The emotions poured out of Tiger Woods, just like they did at Augusta National in the spring, except this felt different.

This was for 11 players - at times his teammates, always under his captaincy - who delivered another American victory in the Presidents Cup and a moment that nearly brought Woods to tears. And when the decisive point was on the board Sunday at Royal Melbourne, Woods celebrated with everyone he could find by hugging them hard enough to take the breath out of them.

"We were right there at the end. I thought we could do it again, just a couple of matches didn't work our way," International team captain Ernie Els said after the Americans completed a 16-14 win. Read More...

Asian players shining for Internationals

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) C.T. Pan was only 7 years old in Taiwan when the International team won the Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne for its only victory in the event. So a video of the historic occasion was essential viewing ahead of matches against the Americans.
