Tiger and Stricker struggle on day 1 of President's Cup

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Being with his ex-caddie was the least of Tiger Woods' worries Thursday.

Woods and Steve Stricker didn't make a birdie, didn't win a hole and matched the record for biggest loss in Presidents Cup history.

Adam Scott and K.J. Choi were relentless at Royal Melbourne, making enough birdies and letting Woods and Stricker self-destruct in a 7-and-6 victory in foursomes.

Only one other match went 12 holes since the Presidents Cup began in 1994 - David Frost beat Kenny Perry by the same score in 1996.

Woods and Steve Williams exchanged a firm, businesslike handshake on the opening hole, and that was about all the drama in what might be the final chapter of this bitter split between player and caddie.
