    Presidents Cup

    Anyone watching?

    Could well be a record score in coming, USA lead 11.5 to 2.5 before the 4balls tonight, if they win all 4 theyll have won before the singles even start!

    Looked a scary good US team on paper and proving to be so in reality, 11 of the 12 played in the 30 man field at the Tour champs last week with only Lefty missing out and hes been brilliant this week so far

    If they travel well gonna be one helluva challenge for the Europeans in France next year!
    In the bag:
    TM M1 9.5 degree
    TM M1 17 degree hybrid
    Orka RS1/RS3 Irons 3-PW
    Orka RS10 Wedges 52,56,60
    Ping Ketsch

    Handicap: 7

    Re: Presidents Cup

    I'm watching but it's so one-sided I'm struggling to muster much enthusiasm. Internationals really need to sweep this session to retain any interest tomorrow but there's probably more chance of the yanks doing it and clinching the cup tonight!

    Handicap: 2.5

    There is a reason why the Fairway Dodger hits it like a girl!

    Still has that forced exhibition feel about it and none of then intensitity that you get with the Ryder Cup - and it seems they are watching too many of the US Solhiem Cup Lady celebrations with those celebrations - Mickelson and Kisner the crowning glory of embarrassment

    I think that's largely down to the lack of a contest, think it'd be different if it was closer.

    Think last time it was close and when they drew it still had that same feel - itís hard to force the intensity and itís the same every time I have watched - there just isnít a rivalry there

    A one sided exhibition match to be honest and to be honest, the international side look outclassed and disinterested. Not strong enough to challenge a US side that even today would in my opinion beat the Europeans in the RC let alone once the cream rises to the top for next year

    Mainly 'cos the USA always win. Ryder cup only came to life when Europe started winning.
