The Presidents Cup - USA vs. Internationals


I love to watch this type of golfing events. They are competitive but they have respect for each other as well. The USA team is against an International group from other countries except Europe. Like the Ryder cup with the USA against the Europeans it makes for four days of back and forth wins for each team. The 2007 Presidents Cup put USA golfers out in front the first day by a wide margin in Montreal, Canada.

The play on Friday had many strange happening that you would not expect to see in an event such as this one. After two days of play America was ahead by a 7 to 5 difference. The biggest event was the team of Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk who were beaten soundly by Vijay Singh and Stuart Appleby. Vijay and Stuart played amazing golf with eagles and birdie chip in from the sand; they combined to go 11 under through 14 holes for a big win for the Internationals.

Comic relief was given by Woody Austin who took a plunge face first into a lake after his second shot ended on the edge of the lake. He waded into the lake to take a shot at his ball which came out but he ended up face first into the lake. This kept making the highlight reel from then on in this event. Woody Austin saved himself many time by making birdies when they needed him.

Woody was teamed with Phil Mickleson and they made a good team. They complimented each other on Friday against Rory Sabbatini and Trevor Immelman. This proved to be one of the winning teams as others fell by the way side on Friday. It seems the man of the event was Mike Weir a Canadian playing in his home country were the fans were enthusiastic and loud cheers for his every move. He was playing well and it proved to be a winner for him.

Saturday’s play was two sets one in the morning than again in the afternoon play. Again the American team came out the winner as they led by 14 ½ points to 7 ½ points. That left Sunday’s play of the single matches with American only winning 4 team’s events to be the winner of the Presidents Cup.

The big excitement was pairing Tiger Woods against Mike Weir and they went out fourth team of the day. This made for a massive crowd surrounding every fairway with most cheering for Mike Weir. Tiger was trying his best but the putts did not drop and some shots were off line. It was obvious the crowd’s negative actions were against Tiger and all the positive action went to Mike. Tiger did pull ahead after 10 holes but it just was not meant to be when Mike won on the 18th green.

Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player were the Captains of each team and there was good reaction to each other throughout the tournament. You could also watch as the players reacted to each other as you could see them visiting together numerous times during their play. The tournament ended up with USA with 19 ½ points to 14 ½ points for the Internationals.
