The Presidents Cup will be played Sept. 22-25 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in northern Virginia. The 10 players who qualified for the U.S. team earned their way on Sunday, before the PGA Championship was over.

GEORGE, South Africa - The International team took a one-point lead over the United States yesterday after the first day of the Presidents Cup. Of the six alternate-shot matches, the International team won three and tied another to hold a 3 1/2-to-2 1/2 lead heading into today's best-ball play on the Links at Fancourt. A team needs 17 1/2 points to win. The U.S. team's first point came from Davis Love III and Kenny Perry, who beat Australian Peter Lonard and South African Tim Clark, 4 and 2. Americans Tiger Woods and Charles Howell III had the day's most lopsided win, 4 and 3. Zimbabwe's Nick Price and Canada's Mike Weir won the opening match, 1 up, over David Toms and Phil Mickelson.

As skies darkened, Tiger Woods stood over a 4-foot putt that was more about pride than a measly half-point in the Presidents Cup. Just holes earlier, he missed a crucial putt from the same distance. And in the morning, he had endured his biggest loss in team competition. "I don't know if I could have lived that down if I missed that one," Woods said. Not to worry. Woods buried the putt for a 1-up victory with Charles Howell III, the seventh win out of 10 matches for the Americans yesterday.

THE WINNING point for Tiger Woods. A perfect record for Jim Furyk. And validation for U.S. captain Fred Couples. The Americans won the Presidents Cup as a team, 19-15, yesterday on Australia's Royal Melbourne. Yet even as they gathered around the gold trophy at the closing ceremony yesterday afternoon, all of them dressed in red shirts and blue blazers, it was hard to ignore the singular achievements. Couples was criticized in some corners for picking Woods, who had fallen out of the top 50 for the first time in 15 years and had gone 2 years without winning.

The United States won enough singles matches yesterday in Montreal to win the Presidents Cup for the second consecutive time. The U.S. outpointed the International team, 19 1/2-14 1/2. That didn't stop the relentless cheers that rocked Royal Montreal on a spectacular autumn day, especially when Canadian hero Mike Weir won the final two holes to beat Tiger Woods. Weir won the Masters 4 years ago, and he wasn't sure which felt sweeter. "It's right there with it," Weir said. "Obviously, winning the Masters was such a thrill, but to play Tiger . . . he's the best player there is, and I had to play my absolute best today to beat him. " For the Americans, it was another victory for their beloved captain, Jack Nicklaus, who now is 2-1-1 in the Presidents Cup. For the Americans, Scott Verplank completed a 4-0 week with birdies on the 16th and 17th to beat Rory Sabbatini, 2 and 1, and Phil Mickelson hammered Vijay Singh, closing him out on the 14th hole.

If you needed more proof that the Presidents Cup is a kinder, gentler competition than the Ryder Cup, it was there at yesterday's news conference to announce the pairings. Why did Gary Player, captain of the International squad, choose to pair his top stud, Vijay Singh, with Mark Hensby, the rising star from Australia, in today's alternate-shot match against the United States' Fred Funk and Jim Furyk? Is it because Singh is a long bomber who struggles with his putter while Hensby is shorter off the tee but a better putter?

Presidents Cup host nation Canada learned yesterday that its biggest star will compete. Former Masters champion Mike Weir was picked as a wild card for the International team, ending months of speculation whether captain Gary Player would take someone who was 20th in the Presidents Cup standings and had not won in 3 years. His other selection was Nick O'Hern, the only player to have beaten Tiger Woods twice in match play. U.S. captain Jack Nicklaus used his two picks on two promising young players who have never played in any cup - Lucas Glover and Hunter Mahan, who has not finished out of the top 25 all summer.

MELBOURNE, Australia - The Americans returned Down Under and wound up on top in the Presidents Cup. Perhaps it was only fitting that Tiger Woods clinched the cup for the second straight time. U.S. captain Fred Couples was criticized for using a pick on Woods, who had been out with an injury most of the summer and hasn't won since his personal life crumbled two years ago. Woods played well all week, even if he didn't always get rewarded with a point. In his singles match against Aaron Baddeley, he was never seriously challenged.

Tiger Woods will consider the possibility of joining the European Tour after changes are made to membership qualification. The European Tour is expected to announce soon that participation in the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, and Seve Trophy will count toward the 13 events needed for tour membership. Woods said he last looked into joining the European Tour in 2000, when the requirement was 11 events. Woods would be only two or three events short of the 13 if the list includes the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup, four majors, four World Golf Championship events, and appearances in either Abu Dhabi or Dubai.

MELBOURNE, Australia - Adam Scott took a 4-up lead over Phil Mickelson in their singles match Sunday at the Presidents Cup - without having to putt on the first three holes. Mickelson hit his opening tee shot into rough, bladed his second under the spectator stands, and conceded after missing his par putt. On the par-5 second, he was in a greenside bunker in two, but took 2 shots to get out and gave Scott his two-footer for birdie. On the par-3 third, Mickelson's tee shot was short and in a gully.

U.S. Presidents Cup captain Fred Couples made it official, choosing Tiger Woods as one of his two picks for the team that will play an International team Nov. 18-20 in Melbourne, Australia. Couples also selected Bill Haas , winner of the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup, to round out his 12-man team. International captain Greg Norman chose a pair of Australians, Robert Allenby and Aaron Baddeley , to compete for his team at the Presidents Cup. Couples had previously announced he would select the 50th-ranked Woods, the 14-time major winner who struggled with injuries this year and who has not won any title since November of 2009 and the eruption of his infamous sex scandal.

ADAM SCOTT IS playing well enough to win the Tour Championship. If he gets some help, he could win a lot more. Scott birdied his last two holes yesterday for a 5-under 65 to emerge from a packed leaderboard and take a one-shot lead over K.J. Choi going into the weekend at East Lake in Atlanta. Scott won the Tour Championship in 2006, the last year when he only had to keep track of the leaderboard. He is No. 19 in the FedEx Cup, making him a longshot to capture the $10 million bonus.

U.S. team captain Fred Couples wants Tiger Woods on the Presidents Cup team, provided Woods plays tournaments before he shows up at the Australian Open a week before the matches. "He can't just show up the week before in Australia," Couples said Wednesday at the Senior Players Championship. "I have made it clear that whoever I picked will be playing the Australian tournament the week before. But I need him to play more than just there. " Woods missed the cut at the PGA Championship and failed to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs.

KOHLER, Wis. - Last week could have been Sean O'Hair's week. Maybe it should have been. His fourth PGA Tour victory, and third in 3 years, appeared to be less than a round away. He shot 64 on Saturday to become the co-leader after 54 holes of the Bridgestone Invitational. Not a major, but still one of the next-best things. And early on the final day, he was ahead by two shots. But it wasn't happening. The 28-year-old West Chester resident would close with a 1-over-par 71 to finish fifth, four behind his friend Hunter Mahan.
