Presidents CupThis Presidents Cup was enjoyable to watch. The USA won the Cup, 19-15.  Not surprising. They simply had more firepower than the International team.

The star of the week wasn’t Jim Furyk, who went 5-0. It wasn’t Tiger Woods either, who seemed to find it the last two days after going 0-3 the first two days. The star was the course. I’ve got Royal Melbourne on my golf bucket list now. I would love to putt those greens and try hitting shots out of those bunkers.

Quotes of the week

There were a couple of quotes which really made me laugh, probably because my mind is in the gutter. Greg Norman asks wives and girlfriends of the players to help them relax by “taking care of them.” Ahem.

Tiger was talking about a two foot putt which surprisingly wasn’t given to his partner Steve Stricker:

“I don’t think he’s missed one of those since coming out of the womb.”

During the NBC broadcast, Johnny Miller might have used a better choice of words when describing Tiger:

“Tiger’s been known to make his partners gag a little bit.”

Uh, no comment.

Presidents CupCritics are commenting about the pairings for Sunday’s Presidents Cup and I can hear what they’re saying.  From a ratings standpoint, the big name players Like Woods may be completely irrelevant by their back nine as the Cup could be over by then.  But that is assuming the early USA players win some matches.  You never know.  That’s why they play the game.

Presidents CupAfter 36 holes of play on day three (Saturday in Australia, Friday afternoon/evening here in the USA), the USA team leads the International team 13-9. The International team still has a chance, but they need a big day for day four.
