US takes control at Presidents Cup

Two perfect teams, and a point for Tiger Woods. That's all the Americans needed to take an 11-6 lead Saturday morning in the Presidents Cup.

Phil Mickelson rolled in a 50-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole as he and Jim Furyk went to 3-0 at Royal Melbourne in the fifth and final foursomes match. In the leadoff match, Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson stayed undefeated for the weekend.

Woods, playing again with Dustin Johnson, finished off their 3-and-2 win with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole to beat Adam Scott and K.J. Choi. It was small payback from losing to that International team — along with Woods' ex-caddie Steve Williams, who now carries the bag for Scott — in Thursday's match.

Five fourballs matches were schedule for the afternoon.
