Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker dominate no matter the format. Phil Mickelson wins no matter whom he has for a partner. It still isn't enough for the Americans to shake the pesky International team in the Presidents Cup. For the second straight day, the Americans were poised to take a comfortable lead. The International team just won't go away. It rallied to win two late matches to split the fourballs session and keep the Americans' lead at one point, 6 1/2 to 5 1/2 . Ernie Els and Mike Weir won the final three holes to turn defeat into a two-up victory, thanks to the Canadian hitting three-wood from the base of the bleachers and onto the green for an eagle that was conceded.

Fred Couples delivered another magical moment. Chris DiMarco provided the clinching point with the biggest putt of his life. Best of all for the U.S. team, the Americans sent captain Jack Nicklaus into retirement a winner. Right when it looked as if the Presidents Cup might end in another tie, DiMarco capped off a sensational week with a 15-foot birdie on the 18th hole on Sunday, giving him a 1-up victory over Stuart Appleby, the final point the Americans needed to win the cup, 18 1/2 -15 1/2 .

Here's a recipe for success. Take the best U.S. players from the PGA Tour and plunge them into a match play competition against a team of international stars. Hold the tournament every other year and alternate sites inside and outside the U.S. We're talking Ryder Cup, right? Actually, it's the Presidents Cup, which will be played for this sixth time, Sept. 16-18, at Lake Manassas, Va., where the PGA Tour takes on the world's top players from everywhere except Europe.
