Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas edged Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose in the first-ever Payne’s Valley Cup, played at Big Cedar Lodge in Missouri to mark the opening of Woods’ first-ever public course design, Payne’s Valley.

Woods and Thomas teamed in a Ryder Cup-style match against a pair of former world No. 1s from Europe. The match ended on the picturesque 123-yard, par-3 19th hole at Payne’s Valley, and with the match tied 2-2 Woods and Thomas got the win by virtue of a closest-to-the-pin tiebreaker after Thomas hit his final shot inside 9 feet.

The small number of spectators at the event and those of us who watched it on the Golf Channel got a special treat on the 19th hole, when Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus joined the foursome. All six tee shots landed on the island green surrounded by water and a limestone wall in the backdrop. 48 majors have been won between the six golfers. Nicklaus leads with 18, followed by 15 from Tiger.
