Presidents Cup 2009 Captain’s Picks Announced

The Presidents Cup isn’t the Ryder Cup.  But watching the Presidents Cup every other year beats the alternative, watching no golf.  Team captains Greg Norman (my pal) and Fred Couples (my swing clone) announced their picks today.

Picks and HOG 2-bit analysis

Freddie picked Lucas Glover and Hunter Mahan for the USA Team.  These are very solid players.  Very strong picks.

The Shark picked Ryo Ishikawa and fellow Aussie Adam Scott for the International Team.  I’d call that one one for two.  Ishikawa is very young, but could be a fearless good pick.  I’m afraid that the Aussie connection may not pan out for the International Team though.  Adam Scott has not been playing well.  But you never know.  Sometimes players perform better in a team environment, like Monty and Sergio Garcia.
