Presidents Cup captains Fred Couples and Greg Norman said no strings were being pulled behind the scenes after it was announced that Tiger Woods and Adam Scott would face each other in the opening day foursome groups.
Steve Stricker (USA) and KJ Choi (International) round out that foursome, but the drama between Tiger Woods and former-caddie Steve Williams (now on Scott’s bag) made those players an afterthought. It’s too bad because Stricker and Choi are two of the most-liked golfers in the world.
But we live in a society that feasts on drama and conflict.. and that’s exactly what Woods and Williams have provided in 2011. As Woods struggles to fight back from his post-running-his-SUV-into-a-fire-hydrant golf woes, Williams has done nothing but aid fuel to the fire that is stoked beneath Woods’ comeback.
Ah, yes.. the gentleman’s game is rife with back-stabbing, racist comments and contention whenever Woods and Williams are in the conversation these days. Casual fans may see golf as a boring TV sport played by rich people, but that’s because they aren’t paying attention to everything that happens behind the scenes.
What we don’t see on TV is where the great storylines seem to be playing out these days.
However, there is an important being played half way around the world that only hits the schedule every two years... the Presidents Cup. Here’s everything you need to know:
