Tiger Woods, Ex-Caddie Steve Williams Shake Hands, Curb Drama at Presidents Cup (Photos)

Tiger Woods was paired with Steve Stricker for the U.S. in the opening match of the Presidents Cup, but it was his pairing against Adam Scott, who is now teamed up with Tiger's ex-caddie Steve Williams, that drew most of the attention.

This might have been because of the racist remarks Williams' made at the Caddie Awards, but it also could have been because Williams' new employer Scott and teammate K.J. Choi beat the American duo 7 and 6.

The Presidents Cup held at the Royal Melbourne Golf Course in Melbourne, Australia features some of the game's best golfers competing in foursome match play. After the opening round, the U.S. owns a 4-2 lead over the International team, despite the poor efforts by Woods and Stricker, who won their first six matches together.

Woods and Williams were all business on Thursday, shaking hands on the first tee, then again on the 14th green when Scott and Choi closed the door.
