I'm starting to get just a little bit excited now.  I now have my ticket to the opening day of the Presidents Cup, together with the ferry ticket from Manhattan to the course just on the other side of the Hudson River.  It is just luck to be in New York on holidays at the same time but seemed too good an opportunity not to go and see of the world's best players, not to mention Tiger and maybe even The Donald.

 

I will write a report when I'm over there.

Hard to see how "we" don't get absolutely blitzed.

USA $1.36.

You can't put enough on at that price, they should be $1.01.

Agreed, the top 10 US players are in order, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Speith, Justin Thomas, Daniel Berger, Rickie Fowler, Kevin Kisner, Brooks Keopka, Matt Kuchar, Patrick Reed & Charley Hoffman. That is one hell of a line up. Big Titty Phil can't even get a look in at 18th.

If you are Adam Scott, Hideki etc, would you even bother turning up?

Quite like the idea of it becoming a mixed event. Would give rest of the world more of a fighting chance.

'We' are going to get absolutely smashed.....

 

I hope the Internationals can at least put up some kind of fight...

Maybe the international team should be able to pick a couple of US players that don't make their team

A bit off topic but I wish they would run a battle of the brands type event.
Two top ranked male and female players from each club builder, 8-10 companies and the bottom two miss the year after and the 2 companies who miss out come in.

You'd be hard pressed to get any club maker to get in with fear of not performing.
I don't think it would be as lopsided as most think with the taylormade players, I don't know who their star lady is.

Nike threw millions at Tiger and Rory but an underwhelming group of punters bought their clubs. I love golf but actually have no idea what brand Spieth, Koepka, Sergio or Thomas use.

 

I like the idea of regenerating the Presidents Cup with the girls but the equipment stuff is.......meh.
