INCHEON, South Korea (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson battled at Chambers Bay in the U.S. Open. They will be partners in South Korea at the Presidents Cup.

U.S. captain Jay Haas saved Spieth and Johnson for the anchor match of foursomes Thursday when the Presidents Cup begins at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea. They will face Marc Leishman of Australia and Danny Lee of New Zealand.

INCHEON, South Korea (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Adam Scott has seven Presidents Cup logos on his bag to show how many teams he has made.

Except for one tie, those cups are empty.

No player symbolizes the futility of the International team more than Scott, simply because he has been around the longest. And no other player on the International team is more determined to end more than a decade of losing for the same reason.

“I’ll speak for myself, but I feel I’m more invested than ever in this event,” Scott said after the final day of practice for the matches at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea. “We don’t have a crystal ball, and anything can happen in this game. But I believe we’re moving closer to a great competition.”

INCHEON, South Korea (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Jim Furyk showed how much the Presidents Cup meant to him. He came to South Korea without his golf clubs.

Furyk easily qualified for the U.S. team, but he has a deep bone bruise in his left wrist. He missed the last two FedEx Cup playoff events to try to get ready for the Presidents Cup, and then decided on Friday he wouldn’t be able to play. Captain Jay Haas asked if he wanted to be an assistant, and Furyk jumped on a plane.

“This week has two components, really,” Furyk said. “It’s an honor for us to represent our country. It’s the greatest to go out there and compete in an event like this, test your ability under a lot of pressure on a big stage. I’m missing that part. But the other component really is the camaraderie, the hanging out in the team room, the talking about pairings, just really having a good time with your boys.”



Presidents Cup Looks Like the Ryder Cup Only on Paper

INCHEON, South Korea (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Comparing the Presidents Cup to the Ryder Cup is like listening to a conversation between a Scot and an American.

The words might be similar, but they sound nothing alike.

The biggest difference with the Presidents Cup is an American team that is filled with smiles, not stress. And there’s a reason for that. The Americans haven’t lost in these matches since 1998, and the last four have not been particularly close.



Players Choose Dream Match Play Partners

Jack NicklausINCHEON, South Korea (PGATOUR.COM) — Each of the 24 players at this week’s Presidents Cup will be partnered with a teammate at some point in the first three days. Team captains Nick Price (International) and Jay Haas (U.S.) will seek input from their players, including if they desire to play with a specific teammate.

But what if the players could choose anybody in golf history as their partner? We asked that very question to a few of the guys here this week.
