There isn’t a single golf fan in the world that is surprised the US won the 2022 Presidents Cup. Did anyone out there even think it was going to be as close as a match as it was?
We give the Internationals a ton of credit for at least making it interesting to watch on Sunday.
Their play on Saturday was nothing short of awe-inspiring, setting up for some good drama in the singles session — at least up to the final hour or so of the TV broadcast.
Quail Hollow Club, so nice, so long, we’re so likely never going to get invited to play it.
Captains Immelman and Love, gentlemen both, through and through.
Tom Kim, superstar in the making.
Xander, born to smoke stogies.
Thomas, best golfer under 5’9″ since Bobby Jones (a stretch, but hey, why not).
Finau, damn he hits it long for taking a half-swing.
Sungjae, smile more, because you’re fricking awesome.
Adam Scott, please don’t go LIV. Never. Stay handsome and play the PGA Tour/Champions Tour.
Corey Conners, keep grinding. You’re gonna lift some big trophies this year. Guaranteed.
Cantlay, I bet your nightmares are boring.
Cameron Young, I bet your nightmares are more boring than Cantlay’s.
Morikawa, we barely saw you at the Presidents Cup. WTF?
Burns, play with better partners at the Ryder Cup next year so you can win some matches.
Scheffler, take a vacation.
Horschel, we love you. Next time, play like a Tour pro.
Kisner, you’re the modern-day Billy Andrade meets John Daly.
Homa, keep draining snakes and stand up straighter. Damn you’re money.
The rest of the International squad, keep grinding. We hope to see some of you guys at the ’24 Cup.
Thanks gents for a fun Presidents Cup.
Next time, let’s see a different format. We want to see the Internationals win one of these events — in this decade! How about in 2024?
