The President's Cup @ Quail Hollow CC - Sept 20 - 25

Recommended Posts

the American side is pretty much exactly as it would be for any RC/PC. :dunno: Looking at their side, I see no reason for them to miss Koepka/Bryson and DJ might have been a solid team guy but meh. 

 

the real hit LIV has caused is to the international team for the PC.  Cam Smith / Niemann / Ancer / Oosty...... maybe even Leishman are guys you'd like to see playing for the internationals... but the president's cup has always felt meh to me. I still watch but it's just not the Ryder. 

Right now the Ryder is only losing out on... Poulter as a captains pick for theatrics? and eventually his presence as a captain? Paul Casey.... if healthy?

Fatty Reed and Bryson would be great for the team.  Kepka and DJ are robots

Fatty Reed is great for us fans, the duo of him and Spieth was great. Watching him go back and forth with Rory was great. He was our answer to Poulter..... but I highly doubt anyone in the team USA locker room actually wants him there. I doubt they want Bryson or Brooks there either.  I do get the feeling that even though DJ doesn't show much emotion, he's probably a good team guy.  He can at least bring Paula's hot friends and the coke

50/50 on if I’m going.  Only 3 hour drive away.  Never been to a Presidents or Ryder cup.

I would go if it was that close to me and I had the chance. If you go you must wear a custom shirt with some sort of FFT secret message and try to get on tv.

Admittedly, have never been able to get into the PC.

Not sure why, prolly bcoz of the lack of villains the other side always has.

I was definitely thinking something to advertise EdEx. KSB goes on national tv and gives some advertisement. It might be our big ticket to Golf Ball Guys .com

you know what would make this much more fun.

Each team should have a nickname. 

Scott/Matsuyama could be JAP DOWN UNDER

Cantlay and Schaffle could be CANT FLEE

Scheffler sucks. Should be benched for the rest of play. Dude doesn't give a sh1t about golf. Since the Masters he has been mailing it in. The fact he started Tour Champ at -10 and lost tells the story. Focking stone faced loser

 

eta: If I were pig snout I would have kneecapped him for being the only team that lost opening matches.

it's funny. I always cheer for team USA in the Ryder Cup but in the President's Cup i'm usually cheering for the international team. 

I guess in the Ryder, I am more into it and am obviously backing USA but since the President's is such an afterthought, I'd rather cheer for the underdog. Or maybe it's just been lately because USA has or has had so many unlikeable players?

International team has Im a fat face focked and all the other fat faced asians.

Justin Thomas needs to be punched in the face. Who is likeable on the US side? Feenow? Cam Young seems to be a douche too.  Homa also has a punchable face. Hate the way he walks too. Stupid ass strut. Davis Love is a major douche

If I had a free swing with a 3 wood to connect with anyone's face on team USA, it would be Billy Horschel. I don't like him.

You all know me.. I always take things and make them better.

They need to do away with ties in the singles competition for the Ryder Cup and presidents cup. No reason they can't keep going and actually have some win. Ties are bullshit. Would really add pressure to it as well. 

I'd do away with all ties, but I think singles is a good place to start

I think theres enough pressure already.... and sometimes pressure to scratch out the half point. if a match is close going into singles, no one cares about halving. If one team is way back, i'm sure they would want no halves just for the slight chance to make a comeback

Ties are dumb in playoffs. This is as playoffs as it gets. Give me a winner.

Maybe can do in singles, but bcoz of the rigorous time constraints of afternoon team sessions, not exactly feasible.
