The United States led the Presidents Cup from start to finish, winning 19-15. The U.S., in nine appearances, now has a 7-1-1 record against the International team. The hideous/amazing mustaches of Geoff Ogilvy and Charl Schwartzel (who didn’t bust out his stache until the weekend…had to have been inspired by Ogilvy…or he just thought the stache was somehow going to land him one of the Australian women in the crowd) just couldn’t generate enough mojo to push them over the top.
Regardless of the win however, Tiger Woods is still the big news. He finished with a deceptive 2-3 record after winning the deciding match against Aaron Baddeley (who I for some reason generated some bitterness towards during the last four days…I think it had something to do with his continuously unkempt appearance…I digress…) Tiger’s ball-striking was about as good as we’ve seen in years. He struggled on the greens through his first few rounds and somehow was paired with guys that played the worst golf of the day each time they played with Tiger (Stricker in his first competitive round in months, and Dustin Johnson that just never got it going), but it was clear that his game is back. He hit 17 or 18 greens on Saturday, and looked like he couldn’t miss a green, fairway, or a putt on Sunday. I’ve never hidden my opinions about Tiger, and I won’t today….the dude will absolutely dominate the sport of golf again, and as long as he stays healthy, it’ll be far sooner rather than later. Hold on one second while I purchase my tickets for the Masters….
