2007 Presidents Cup

September 28, 2007

This years Presidents Cup is underway at Montreal’s, Royal Mountain Golf Club. The Presidents Cup takes place every two years, except for 9/11. This tournament consists of two captains, one for the U.S.A and one for Internationals. Each captain picks 12 players to represent their team and players are pitted against each other in different playing formats. The captain for the U.S.A is Jack Nicklaus and for the International squad it’s Gary Player.

On Day 1 the United States have 5.5 points compared to the Internationals .5. The first round four-ball match results were Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan over Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy, Phil Mickelson and Woody Austin tied with Vijay Singh and Mike Weir, Stewart Cink and Zack Johnson over Rory Sabbatini and Trevor Immelman, Dave Toms and Jim Furyk over Ernie Els and Angel Cabrera, Tiger Woods and Charles Howell over K.J. Choi and Nick O’Hern.

Day 2 the players play a foursome style match, where players play their own shots and balls. Day 3 the players play a four ball style again. Then on the final day of the Presidents Cup the players play a single style match in which the players play one another head to head.

In recent meetings the United States have won the Presidents Cup 5 times since 1994. In 2003 and 2005 both teams tied and then captains decided it would be better off just leaving it at a tie. The International team have never won the Presidents Cup.

It’s looking right on par with the United States to win another Presidents Cup. To get in on the action check out bodoglife.com
