Presidents Cup bracing for Trump show at Liberty National

Steve Stricker

The Presidents Cup, a match play event pitting a 12-man American team against an global side comprised of players from outside Europe, has been a bit of a snooze since its creation in 1994, particularly when played in the United States, where the home team have never lost. He has played in every Ryder Cup since 1995. The close finish seemed to energize a team that had become exhausted of getting hammered time and again. I'm still training. I'm getting stronger. I get to do what I love. I'm sure he was still the same kind of guy.

Scott is the only player in his team to have tasted anything other than "loss", having been part of Gary Player's team that shared the Cup with Jack Nicklaus' United States outfit in 2003. I didn't know if I was going to be able to be here, because I couldn't ride in a cart. All served as honorary chairman of the Presidents Cup while in office.

The Internationals have won just once (1998) since the inaugural edition in 1994.

With New York's vociferous fans sure to amp up the atmosphere, and the worldwide team desperate to end a six-event losing streak dating back to 2005, Fowler is hoping for a competitive week. Then we got to the end, and the notion of "100 percent health", which Woods said was an undefinable number after eight surgeries.

"I think they're in pretty good shape in the future with those guys", Miller said.

It's been in the American game in this format, and Mickelson always figures into the equation.

General Assembly, called Kim "Rocket Man", and Kim threatened in a video to "tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire". Trump, speaking during the U.N.

The pretense of some media session that was about "team activities" and the Presidents Cup competition was not maintained past the first minute of this press conference.

"And it came true", said Ochoa, whose 21 career victories include two majors. He has earned just over $83 million, second only to Tiger Woods. But when asked to confront these thorny issues on a sun-splashed day preceding the 12th Presidents Cup, America's golf stars largely chose to punt.

Mickelson has never been No. 1 in the world.

Xander Schauffele won the Tour Championship by saving par four times on the back nine and closing with a birdie. And Justin played great this year.

During Tuesday's practice rounds, the US team wore bright red-and-white striped shirts paired with navy blue trousers and a dealer's choice of star-spangled footgear, but in regard to the protests the players spoke softly and cautiously, which was a statement in itself. "... I think it's a great statement for our game". Obviously there's no guarantee that all 12 players will be the same in a year's time, but it is likely that more than half the players will be the same. I mean, I competed against him, many guys looked up to him and watched him win, but it's an opportunity as he's opened up over the last five or six years to really get to know him on a different level.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - United States captain Steve Stricker swiftly and succinctly refuted any suggestion that his team members might stage a silent protest when the national anthem is played before the Presidents Cup begins this week.
