For the third consecutive Presidents Cup, Tiger Woods secured the win for the United States. Battling a bad back that started acting up near the end of his round, Woods was able to par the 18th hole to clinch the victory at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

The U.S. squad only needed four points on Sunday to claim the title, but the International team didn’t go quietly, winning five of the first seven matches on Sunday. Still, the 14-8 lead was too great for the International team to overcome.

Woods spoke about the team effort afterwards:

It feels good. It was a team effort this whole week. We really played well, and gave ourselves a really nice lead going into the singles. And it was a tough day, tough conditions, rain, wind. It was tough all around. It was a long week but it was worth it. We did it (Reuters).

The U.S. team has now won the last five Presidents Cups and eight of the overall ten Cups played. The next contest will be come 2015 in Incheon, South Korea.
