Match 33: Woods def. Baddeley 4 and 3

MELBOURNE, Australia -- In arguably his finest individual performance in months, Tiger Woods beat Aaron Baddeley 4 and 3 to give the United States the Presidents Cup.

Woods blasted out of a greenside bunker to a foot for a conceded birdie that would give the U.S. the win for the second straight Presidents Cup. The win was assured after Baddeley was unable to hole his chip for a halve to extend the match.

With the performance, Woods silenced the critics who questioned Couples' using a Captain's Pick on the former world No. 1. Woods was 5 under through 15 holes as he made six birdies.

Woods took the lead in the match with consescutive birdies on Nos. 5 and 6. He never trailed and eventually built a 5-up lead with a par at the 13th before Baddeley birdie the next to take the match to the decisive final hole.
