Being with his ex-caddie was the least of Tiger Woods' worries Thursday.Woods and Steve Stricker, unbeatable two years ago in the Presidents Cup,didn't make a birdie, didn't win a hole and tied the record for the biggestloss in the history of the event.Adam Scott and K.J. Choi were relentless at Royal Melbourne, keeping theball in play with callaway x22 and making enough birdies as Woods and Strickerself-destructed. The International side won, 7 and 6. They were the last of sixfoursomes matches in the opening session, yet the rout was so great they werethe second match to finish.The Americans won the other three matches in a rout, led by the openingmatch of Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson. They were 7 under through 16 holes in a4-and-2 win over Ernie Els and Ryo Ishikawa. Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk, together for the first time since Brookline in the1999 Ryder Cup, won 4 and 3 over Retief Goosen and Robert Allenby. Hunter Mahanand David Toms drilled the Korean duo of Y.E. Yang and K.T. Kim, 6 and 5.Woods and Steve Williams exchanged a firm, businesslike handshake on theopening hole and otherwise kept their distance. That was about all the drama inwhat might be the final chapter of this bitter split between player and caddie.Williams now works for Scott, and just like so many other teamcompetitions, he had the best horse. Scott was crisp off the tee and into thefirm greens. He rolled in a 25-foot birdie putt to win the 11th hole, then hitan approach into 8 feet as Choi made the birdie to close out the match. It was the worst margin of defeat for Woods in any form of match play sincehe turned pro.Scott called it a ``very pleasing victory,'' more to do with being homein Australia thananything to do with his caddie.( callawaydiablo edge irons for sale)Williams first showed the animosity in the split when he said after Scottwon the Bridgestone Invitational that it was the ``best win of my life.'' Thencame that night in Shanghai twoweeks ago at a caddies' award party, when Williams made a racial comment aboutWoods while getting roasted for that TV interview at the Bridgestone.
