Golf Australia Express : October 2013 - United Colours of Golf
on the leaderboard it is reaching desperation point. But as Seve proved, perhaps we needed to get there to turn it around. So what can be done to cure the ailing event? Should we look at changing the format? Greg Norman thinks so, having called for sweeping changes after he captained the Internationals to a loss in 2011 at Royal Melbourne. “I think it should be the host nation’s opportunity to dictate how the format is played,” Norman said at the time. The former world No.1 also wanted the host nation to have the right to choose match- ups after the visiting team had nominated its playing order. The PGA Tour refused to bite at The Shark’s suggestions. And so here we are again. Is it possible we could inadvertently uncover a Seve of our own? One time that responsibility would have rested with Norman, but The Shark was heading into the twilight years of his career when the Presidents Cup began. Adam Scott is too, well, nice to be an instigator while Jason Day loves his home in the US as much as his homeland. In fact, looking at the list of International players this time around—which includes seven Presidents Cup rookies—other than Day, there’s not an obvious ‘shot- stirrer’ among them. What that means for the tournament’s future only time will tell. One thing history has shown us in sport, however, is that losing becomes a habit in the same way winning breeds wins. And it appears this habit is going to be a hard one for the Internationals to break. OTG The Captain The Leader The Advantage The Team TEAM USA CLICK ON BUTTONS ABOVE TO REVEAL TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS
