After the first four sessions of the Presidents Cup, it appeared the American team had made the Internationals look naked with a 14-8 lead heading into the 12 singles matches on Sunday.
Then someone quite literally got naked at Muirfield Village G.C.
A streaker was seen and photographed running around the home of the 2013 Presidents Cup on Sunday, making as many headlines as Tiger Woods’ back injury, which he flared back up in his match against Richard Sterne.
The streaker, a woman, was not immediately identified. Fans on the grounds said the woman ran all the way up the 18th fairway a little after 2 p.m. ET, evading police trying to catch her. She was eventually caught by police, covered with a jacket and will likely be left to pay some kind of fine.
Presidents cup female streaker. Full fairway run, one cop evaded and clean escape into the woods. Might get away if she had clothes stashed.

Stephanie Wei spoke with Ernie Els and Steve Stricker, who faced each other in a Sunday singles match, to get the skinny.
According to both players, the streaker was “streaking for Stricker.” (Take that, Stricker’s Savages!) She wore a small red thong, as well as American flag pasties over her nipples.
“She was quick,” said Stricker, according to Wei. “I thought about tackling her for a second because the cops were after her, but then I thought, ‘Naw, I don’t want any part of that.’”
The American team is assured of a tie, already with 17 of 34 possible points in their grasp. Since no singles match can end in a halve until the Presidents Cup is won by one side or the other, the Americans need to win another singles match to go for an 8-1-1 record in the 10 Presidents Cups played.
The International team has never won on American soil, tying the United States in South Africa in 2003 and winning in a rout in 1998 in Australia.
