(CTN News) – It’s time for the 2022 Presidents Cup. Following a long year of controversy surrounding player-league alignments, captains sorting rosters, and discussions about how to spice up future events, there is actually golf to be played.
It is not uncommon to feel closer than it actually is for a longer period of time in team golf at this level, despite predictions of a blowout by the United States.
That wasn’t the case in 2017, when the U.S. side absolutely waxed the International team, but hopefully, with an amalgamation of big hitters, young stars and a us-against-the-world attitude, we get a Presidents Cup that is at least interesting through most of Sunday’s singles matches.
On 2022 Presidents Cup, There is no need to look beyond the first day if you want to know what the event could become. Over the last 15 years, the U.S. has dominated international foursome matches, doing most of the damage.
In the unlikely event that this happens again — and there’s no reason to believe it won’t, the red, white, and blue will likely be off to a great start.
