10 things that need to happen for an International win

Oh dear. I fear the worst here. The Internationals need to win 8 of the 12 singles matches on the final day of the 2009 Presidents Cup to win. Ana amazing last few holes from Tiger yesterday turned what might have been a one point margin into a three point one.

For the Internationals to win, and for me to win my Presidents Cup wager with One Eyed Golfer, here’s 10 things which need to happen.

  1. Angel Cabrera, Camilo Villegas and Retief Goosen need to turn it around fast. None have won a match yet.
  2. Retief needs to confuse everybody on every hole. Not just the 18th.
  3. Someone tell Y.E. Yang he can lift any golf bag he wants if he wins.
  4. All Internationals need to show the grit of Robert Allenby.
  5. Some famous International basketballer needs to be flown in to counter the useless assistant role of Michael Jordan. Say it with me, Yao Ming.
  6. We need some of our own rowdy, raucous and potentially match changing International golf fans in the gallery. Do they exist?
  7. Steve Stricker needs to miss a putt.
  8. Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy must win. We care down here and there’s a grief train coming.
  9. Tim Clark needs to play two matches at once.
  10. Greg Norman may need to play.
I think Tim Clark or Ernie Els should have been up against Woods. Nevertheless, it gives the golf world another Yang v Woods show.

    Is there a special sauce I should use on ‘croc kebobs’…???

    That was fun. Let’s do a double-or-nothing with some Australian Masters picks…
