2011 Presidents Cup: Thursday photos

The opening day of the Presidents Cup had plenty of colour around the Royal Melbourne golf course. 

The International Team must be feeling a little miffed after finishing the day behind the Americans 4 – 2. Earlier in the day, the International Team raced to an early lead in most matches but only Adam Scott and KJ Choi finished with a win, a record 7 and 6 victory over Woods and Stricker. The largest margin in Presidents Cup history.
The predominantly sombre feel around the course has replaced the buzz that surrounded Royal Melbourne earlier in the day, and Aussie Golfer got around to take a few pics away from the action.

Scoreboards are all over the course, barely outnumbering the big TV screens.

It’s a little Melbourne Cup in some ways. Certainly the same amount of alcohol consumed.
The Presidents Cup village is a great place to hang out after and during the rounds.
