President’s Cup Tied At 11-11
This President’s Cup has been much more entertaining than I had thought it would be. It seems like there is more intensity on the American players’ side this year, especially in Tiger. It has been enjoyable to watch the matches so far and see how well some ofthe teams work together (Like Phil and Furyk).
Here are Sunday’s pairings for the President’s Cup singles matches, along with my picks.
12:05 p.m. â€“ Tim Clark (International) vs. Justin Leonard (U.S.) – Leonard
12:15 p.m. â€“ Trevor Immelman (International) vs. David Toms (U.S.) – Immelman
12:25 p.m. â€“ Retief Goosen (International) vs. Tiger Woods (U.S.) – Tiger (barely)
12:35 p.m. â€“ Mark Hensby (International) vs. Kenny Perry (U.S.) – Perry
12:45 p.m. â€“ Vijay Singh (International) vs. Fred Couples (U.S.) – Vijay
12:55 p.m. â€“ Mike Weir (International) vs. Scott Verplank (U.S.) – Weir
1:05 p.m. â€“ Adam Scott (International) vs. Jim Furyk (U.S.) – Furyk
1:15 p.m. â€“ Peter Lonard (International) vs. Stewart Cink (U.S.) – Lonard
1:25 p.m. â€“ Michael Campbell (International) vs. Fred Funk (U.S.) – Campbell
1:35 p.m. â€“ Nick Oâ€™Hern (International) vs. Davis Love III (U.S.) – O’Hern
1:45 p.m. â€“ Angel Cabrera (International) vs. Phil Mickelson (U.S.) – Phil
1:55 p.m. â€“ Stuart Appleby (International) vs. Chris DiMarco (U.S.) – DiMarco
My predictions: The good matches will be Goosen/Tiger, Cabrera/Mickelson and Appleby DiMarco. I think Vijay should easily beat Freddy as well as Immelman beating Toms. You never know though. That’s why they play the game.
