Jack Nicklaus believes the Presidents Cup's popularity is growing

Jack Nicklaus believes the Presidents Cup's popularity is growing

They pushed each other hard all year, now Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth want to team up take on the best of the global team in this week's Presidents Cup.

Just like the Americans' numerous defeats over the years in the Ryder Cup, you could point to a putt here, a shot there in making the difference between winning and losing. One some of his teammates can't even fathom.

"I think it's going to become harder and harder for players to play at the top level for long periods of time", Scott said. "They played phenomenally well yesterday together, and Adam being the senior member of the team, certainly I needed him to have one of the rookies". I personally don't think half the fellows that are probably doing it understand what they're doing. "I don't know if it will ever be topped". Day's ranking has slipped since the last Presidents Cup.

The United States have won nine of 11 prior editions of the event, with one tie and just one worldwide victory, in 1998 in Melbourne. More than 200 NFL players and owners found ways to show dissent by either kneeling, locking arms in solidarity or staying in the locker room while the national anthem was played.

Woods said he is enjoying serving as an assistant for the United States, along with Jim Furyk, Davis Love III and Fred Couples, and under captain Steve Stricker.

When asked on the eve of the event if he could see a scenario where he did not return to competitive golf, Woods said: "Yeah, definitely".

Global captain Nick Price of Zimbabwe will try to break the losing streak with a team that includes Jason Day, Adam Scott and Marc Leishman of Australia; Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel and Branden Grace of South Africa; Hideki Matsuyama of Japan; Si Woo Kim of South Korea; Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela; Adam Hadwin of Canada and captain's picks Emiliano Grillo of Argentina and Anirban Lahiri of India. President Trump is the honorary chairman of the matches, and his close ties to the game-coupled with his recent remarks about anthem protests-has made this a politically charged few days for sports. But if history is any guide Tiger Woods is unlikely to comment in great detail on much of anything this week.

Golf typically doesn't have to concern itself with ceremonial starts because opening tee times can vary by as many as six hours.

Falcons survive scare from Lions 30-26
The NFC North-leading Lions (2-0) host the Atlanta Falcons (2-0) on Sunday in a matchup of two of the NFC's four undefeated teams. So with that in mind, it's clear that Detroit needs as many early-season wins in order to keep this from happening once more.


Most unusual about his career is what he hasn't done. He has never been voted the PGA Tour player of the year.

"I'm hoping that I can redeem myself this week", Day said. I didn't play good. I don't think that the sporting field is the right place.

A squad led by some of the world's best players, including FedEx Cup victor Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka and Patrick Reed, has the United States looking to improve to 10-1-1 in the Presidents Cup as heavy chalk. US captain Steve Stricker should have this point written in pen already for Team USA.

"It's nice to be out here with some great assistant captains and our captain". Mickelson is tough to ignore.

"Get my health organized. make sure the pain goes away".

Jordan Spieth played in his first Presidents Cup at age 20 and this is his fifth team. He has age on his side. "This is another golf course, this is another time of our lives".

"I let the team down two years ago in Korea, " a blunt Day told the media at Liberty National today as the players gathered for the 2017 teams event between the United States and Nick Price's Internationals. The best of his generation, Woods played 10 straight events until injury got in the way and he missed the 2008 Ryder Cup recovering from knee surgery.

Mickelson keeps right on going.
