The American golf team has won a fourth successive Presidents Cup after the closing singles at Royal Melbourne.

The Americans claimed their seventh victory from nine editions of the biennial contest despite splitting the 12 final-day singles matches 6-6 with Greg Norman's International team on Sunday.

They led 4-2 after the opening day and went into the last up 13-9, clinching victory when Tiger Woods completed a 4 and 3 win over Australian Aaron Baddeley to take his team to the 18 points needed.
