Bear owes it to Tiger.

JACK NICKLAUS knocked down a flag and Tiger Woods took care of the rest as the best players of their generations lived up to the billing at the Battle at Bighorn.

On a sweltering afternoon at Palm Desert, California, Woods chalked up nine birdies in 16 holes and carried Nicklaus to a 3 and 2 victory over Sergio Garcia and Lee Trevino.

Nicklaus made only a few contributions in the made-for-TV exhibition, but they were memorable. Despite his 62-year-old legs, the Golden Bear hit a seven-iron that kissed off the flagstick for a tap-in at No. 9.

Nicklaus said: "I had a great partner."
