Woods finally gets birdie to drop

Woods birdies No. 4

Tiger Woods rolls in a 20-footer for birdie on the par-4 fourth hole.

MELBOURNE, Australia – Tiger Woods has just made his first birdie of the Presidents Cup.

The curving 24-footer at the fourth hole was more than just a morale boost – it gave Woods and Dustin Johnson a  1-up advantage over Aaron Baddeley and Jason Day. Woods celebrated by stabbing at the air with his right fist as the putt dropped.

Woods and Steve Stricker did not make a birdie during Thursday’s opening Foursomes. The Americans lost 7 and 6 -- tying for the shortest match in Presidents Cup history --  to Adam Scott and K.J. Choi.
