Team USA once again captured the Presidents Cup competition held this past September, this time defeating the International team by a match score of 17.5-12.5. The USA got off to a fast start, leading 8-2 after two days, but the International squad fought back valiantly the final two days, outscoring Team USA 10.5-9.5. World #1 Scottie Scheffler of the USA actually failed to win a match in four tries, winning only half a point with a tie, showing that at the top levels of golf, anyone ranked in the top 100 in the world can defeat any other player on a given day. Tom Kim from the International squad was the sensation of the match with his showmanship and strong play. The PGA Tour rookie, by all accounts, is a superstar in the making. Since the USA won for the 12th time in 14 attempts, there have been calls for changing the format. However, when you examine each match, the competition this year was actually closer than the score would indicate, especially with the Internationals’ strong play the final two days. Undoubtedly, their drought will end, perhaps with the next playing of the Presidents Cup.
