TW didn't play well. AS adn KJ played much better. They deserved the win. Congratulations to them.

1st Day match. USA 4 - International 2. Let's see what happen tomorrow. Interesting matches today except for the TW/SS vs AS/KJ. No even a fight not to mention close. Sad

tiger and stricker played badly, but i think anyone on the american team that were put up against Adam and KJ today would had lost. They were something like 7 under through 12 holes.

For those who want to watch for free go to Koisport.eu. It's free but at the expense of some quality graphics and slight breakups. But still watchable. There are also many many live sports at this streaming.

Cheers!

Starhub and Mio showing free to the public or for their subscribers only. That's a different thing. If for subscribers then it's not actually free. It's probably a reward as their subscribers.

TW looks complacent, he might catch up in the later games. But his fairway shots have been bad, this is certainly his weakest link.

It seems TW cannot be wished well. The more we wish him well the worst his game.

TW actually was playing well except his putts were missing.

The greens is tough and hard to read

I hope TW will play well on Sunday

Sadly the Americans won again but the Internationals fought hard to the end.
The Americans have an advantage because they play every year. One year Ryder Cup, next year President's Cup. It is time there was a Europe vs International's cup so they could rotate and give both Europe and International's more practice in the format. The other thing to consider is that the Europeans play regularly together as do the Americans hence the reason the Europeans are more competitive against the Americans than are the Internationals.

In reality the International players need to take more time to prepare and focus on the team rather than their own commitments (media or golfing tournament appearances) if they are ever going to be competitive in the foursomes (alternate shot). They proved they can match it in the singles and four ball.

It was also great to see the Americans engaging with the Australian Fanatics sporting supporters after it was all over. This competition is played in far better spirits than the Ryder Cup.

Few observations:
1. TW is definitely on the mend. Awesome play on sat and sun.
2. I don't think putting Jason day and Adam baddley is good..... The pair surname sum it up....'Badd Day'
3. Koreans Rock!!!!!

For next president cup, I hope the Lee , rory, and Sergio can take up dual residenships

Concur with bro Duval. The Koreans rock and are the best performers amongst the Internationals. Perhaps Greg Norman's intention of putting all Aussies in the last few match plays would gain recognition that it is the Aussies who help get the most points and therefore credit for the win. This is probably because this year's Presidents Cup is played at home ground and he wants full support from the home crowd. Unfortunately, the Aussies themselves is having a hard time coping with the greens. So no home ground advantage to the Aussies this time compared to 1998.

There is no doubt Norman made a poor pick with Allenby however there were poor performances across the board. Ishikawa was selfish and should have turned up in Australia rather than his media commitments elsewhere and he may have performed better on the first two days. Els was a passenger for the whole event and Baddeley and Day were both disappointing under pressure.

The Koreans helped contribute to 6 points, the top 3 Australians (for comparison purposes) helped contribute 7 points and the South Africans helped contribute 7.5 points.

The 2 best individual performers were Schwartzel and Ogilvy who each helped contribute 3.5 points followed by Goosen and Choi each helping with 3 points.

Yes, the home ground knowledge certainly did not pay off and as Adam Scott said even if you know the course well you still have to hit good shots.
They are all good players but they all need more regular experience with the format of team match play.

Its easy to criticize. But honestly who could predict the result, granted the captains pick might be better. But all of this is said on hindsight.

We as spectators and fans should just enjoy the game. Watched day 1 till day 3, missed out day 4 cause I was golfing. The conditions on day 1 and day 2 was really really tough, if you haven't played in melbourne before or at st andrews with the type of winds and how hard the green was.
