Presidents Cup 2013 Day 4: Live Scores, Standings and Results

The United States has once again come away victorious in the Presidents Cup.
While the singles matches did not go exactly as U.S. captain Fred Couples had planned, the American clinched the victory when Tiger Woods lagged a putt on the 18th hole to concession distance, and a victory over Richard Sterne.
That gave the American team the clinching point in this rain-slogged competition.
The United States has owned the Presidents Cup, recording an 8-1-1 mark all-time.
Fred Couples has won three straight as captain of the Presidents Cup teams. But it won't be four. He says he's had enough.
Freddie Couples says 3-peat at the Presidents Cup is "good enough for me." Won't be captain in 2015, but says he'd be an assistant if asked— Stephanie Wei (@StephanieWei) October 6, 2013
The United States has won five consecutive Presidents Cup titles, and Tiger has delivered the winning points in the last three.
It's all over. The U.S. wins as the Internationals concede.
Great lag. It's conceded. And the U.S. wins it!!— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
Tiger and Sterne both on the green. Sterne maybe 60 feet, Tiger 40. A pair of two-putts to clinch it all.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
If Tiger can halve the 18th, the U.S. is a winner.
Tiger gets up and down for par, Sterne misses birdie putt. He goes to 18th tee 1 up.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
Keegan Bradley is in a world of hurt, 2 down to Charl Schwartzel with two holes to play.
Internationals trying to stage a comeback. Kuchar goes down.
Another point for the Internationals...Leishman beats Kuchar 1 up. Now 17-13, U.S.— Brian Wacker (@pgatour_brianw) October 6, 2013
Up to the minute scoreboard:
Remaining (INTLs need all for tie): Leishman 1 up/17 Kuchar Woods 1 up/16 Sterne Charl 1 up/15 Keegan Webb 1 up/14 Louis Phil AS/14 Cabrera— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) October 6, 2013
Tiger makes his par putt and he is 1 up over Sterne through 16. He appears to be the clinching American point, if he can hold on.
Could we have a real hero?
Back seems to be a real issue, but Sterne airmails green @ No. 16 & Tiger putting for par.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
Ernie Els closed out Steve Stricker with a par at the last. It's 17-12, USA. INTLs could tie by winning out (they lead one, trail 2, 2 A/S).— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) October 6, 2013
There are those who are skeptical of Tiger.
Tiger's back issue has resurfaced. He can see the end from here, though.— RonGreenJr (@RonGreenJr) October 6, 2013
Here's the Amy Mickelson-Lindsey Vonn cart-pushing situation.
Adam Scott comes through with 2 and 1 win for the international team over Bill Haas. The U.S. needs one more point to clinch, and it looks like Tiger is going to have the first opportunity to deliver the winner. He is all square with Richard Sterne as they play the 15th.
Tiger just had a twinge in his back as he ripped a shot toward the green.
Matt Kuchar with a birdie on 14 and he's all square with Marc Leishman. Everyone yells, "Kooch" when he evens up the match.
A bogey for Tiger at 13 and GC Tiger Tracker is not pleased.
And now a bogey @ the 13th hole. We're back to all square. Does he think this is a practice round?— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013
