PC Fizzer

Well, wasn’t that a fizzer. You can argue all you like about whether Canada was a good enough home course advantage for the International team in the President’s Cup, but there wasn’t much of a fight. There was really only 3 games that needed to go the other way and the result would have been different but that’s a fairly big margin in this sort of golf.

None of the Internationals won a foursomes match and only Ernie Els and Mike Weir came away with a better than 50% winning percentage. Rory Sabbatini and Trevor Immelman didn’t post a victory all weekend and I was very surprised to see Gary Player choose to keep them together through it all. Everyone else changed partners at some point.

Best of the Aussies was Appleby and Ogilvy with 2 from 5 points apiece. An ordinary performance all round really and didn’t help the rivalry and tournament format much. Bring on Royal Melbourne and a tougher, no-nonsense captain in the Great White Shark. These yanks won’t have a chance on a tough golf course.
