What the Presidents Cup badly needed was a strong showing from the International team or more importantly an even contest. With just a day to go and the International team leading by a huge margin one fails to see how they are going to make a fight of this one. Despite fielding a strong team it is unfortunate that the international team finds themselves in this situation right now where they will have to play out of their skin to prevent Team U.S.A. from defending their title. The Presidents Cup has always been presented as an alternative to the Ryder Cup and to add th dimension of team play in a sport like Golf where most players through the year gun for individual glory.

The Ryder Cup has been a great success story followed and watched keenly across the globe largely because of the intense competition and the two teams have left us with some memorable Ryder Cups like the one in 1969 when Jack Nicklaus conceded a putt that resulted in the first ever tied Ryder Cup. Unfortunately the same has not been the case with the Presidents Cup. Intense competition has always been missing and in the nascent history of the Presidents Cup, the International team has only won once. If the Presidents Cup wishes to be considered as a parallel to the Ryder Cup it will have to provide far greater competition and enthralling golf. Lets hope on the final day the international team can pull the rabbit out of the hat and provide us with a spectacle that we will remember for a long time
