The Presidents Cup’s status can be measured by one of the top goals for the International team. It just wants it to be close. About the only upheaval the Presidents Cup has offered in recent times was Woody Austin dropping in the water with Robert Allenby charging Anthony Kim of a huge night out in San Francisco. Tiger having to confront his old caddie in a starting match few weeks after Steve Williams gave a racially tough comment regarding him.
United States have lost just one time since Presidents Cup started in the year 1994. They never lost in their home turf. They have 3 golfers – Matt Kuchar, Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods, who have won Memorial at Muirfield Village. They have just one golfer who has never taken part in a professional event – he is twenty year old Jordan Spieth. This reveals why Team International is at least concerned to make a game out of this.
Presidents Cup started on Thursday with 6 fourballs matches. There are few things that one must look at the Muirfield Village. All the things are going Spieth’s way in this year. He began the season with no status at all. Spieth would be coupled with Stricker against Brendon de Jonge and Ernie Els, and he could make it a stunning year with a better week. Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson produced the top Unites States team in a losing cause at Ryder Cup previous year at Medinah.
