If the President’s Cup were played tomorrow…

We are four months away from The Presidents Cup which is being hosted by the Harding Park Golf course in San Francisco but if it were being played tomorrow, these would be the teams:

International USA
Geoff Ogilvy Tiger Woods
Vijay Singh Phil Mickelson
Camilo Villegas Steve Stricker
Ernie Els Kenny Perry
Mike Weir Sean O’Hair
Retief Goosen Zach Johnson
Angel Cabrera Jim Furyk
Tim Clark Justin Leonard
Rory Sabbatini Stewart Cink
Jeev M Singh Anthony Kim
Captain’s Greg Norman and Fred Couples will also have two extra picks to add to each team. The International’s are dominated by South Africans with Tim Clark and Rory Sabbatini in some good form.

What is missing from the International team is some little upstart who mouths off a bit too much to present the opposition supporters someone to hate and add a bit of spice to the event. I’m hoping Jason Day can win a few back-to-back tournaments, say something silly and fill that Sergio Garcia type role.

With President Obama being named honorary chairman of the 2009 Presidents Cup and the relatively poor form from some of the International team, Team USA will prove hard to beat.

  • Is this like “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?”?

    He’s Spanish and therefore doesn’t qualify.
