MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - The Americans kept the lead in the Presidents Cup, and they still don't have a point from Tiger Woods.

Woods is 0-2 for the first time ever in this event, and the first time in any team competition since he and Phil Mickelson lost their opening two matches at the 2004 Ryder Cup.

His teammates made up for it by splitting the six fourballs matches on Friday on a Royal Melbourne course with such vicious wind that even some of the Australians said it was as tough as they had ever seen it.

Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson won for the second straight day, as did Mickelson and Jim Furyk. The Americans had a 7-5 lead going into a double session Saturday with 10 points at stake.
