Melbourne (dpa) - Golf superstar Tiger Woods has led the team of the USA in the Presidents Cup for the eighth win in a row as captain and player.

After a strong final day in the duel of the top twelve golfers from the USA, the selection of the 15-time major winner prevailed against a world selection in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday with 16:14 points and triumphed in the 13th overall team competition for the tenth time.

Before the final individual duels, the USA was still behind with 8:10 points after three days. But led by 43-year-old Woods, who won all of his three matches over the four days, the favored Americans made a comeback at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club. With 27 match wins, Woods is now the most successful player in the history of the team competition. With eight points in the final individual duels, the US team also set its own record for the first Presidents Cup 25 years ago.

Like the Ryder Cup, the Presidents Cup is held every two years. However, there are no European players at the start for the international team. The Europeans only compete against the USA in the Ryder Cup.
