The short history of the Presidents Cup has been pretty lopsided, but so was the Ryder Cup for awhile. I'm willing to bet that as golf takes off across Asia and South America, in time we'll see the Internationals become more dominant.

Your wife will certainly get the mono-e-mono matchup she's waiting for in the 2016 Olympics, where all the countries will be represented equally. Then we'll see if America is as dominant as you say we are.

By 2016, the landscape could certainly change, although the Olympics really won't measure the overall strength of any country, given that it sounds like it will be a 72-hole stroke-play event.

In other words, anybody could win it, and that player's country would just simply add it to the medal count. And as we all know, all of these guys are good and if they get hot at the right time, they are all capable of winning.

All we have to do is look at the majors to see that, given that the PGA was won by a Korean and the Masters by an Argentinean, and neither one of those countries are currently dominant in men's golf. Americans did win the other two majors, by the way.

I'd still love to see match play in the Olympics -- at least for the final eight or so -- as I would in the Tour Championship for the FexEx Cup. It's so much more fun that way.
