Woods-Kuchar (U.S.) def. Scott-Matsuyama (Int'l), 1 up

Woods' eagle at 15

Tiger Woods hit his 238-yard second shot on the par-5 15th hole to 3 feet to set up his eagle in Saturday's Four-ball match.

DUBLIN, Ohio -- The American duo of Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar remained undefeated this week, defeating Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama in the final match of the Saturday Four-ball session, 1 up, at The Presidents Cup.

QUICK LOOK

The Internationals were 2 up after the first three holes, thanks to two Matsuyama birdies. But then Woods responded with three consecutive birdies, winning two holes and squaring the match. Both American players bogeyed the 10th to lose the hole but Woods squared the match again with a birdie at the 13th. Kuchar followed with a birdie to win the 14th and Woods won the next hole with an eagle. A Matsuyama birdie at the 16th cut into the U.S. lead but Kuchar birdied the 18th to close out the match. It was the first time this week the Kuchar-Woods duo had been extended to the 18th hole. Woods-Kuchar are 3-0 in their matches this week.

MAN OF THE MATCH

Tiger Woods. His key stretch on the front nine kept the U.S. in the match as Kuchar didn't post his first birdie until the 11th hole. Woods was 6 under on his ball. "This guy's a horse," Kuchar said. "I was along for the ride."
