Presidents Cup: US takes early lead

Presidents Cup: US takes early lead

"I think if we can get off to a great start with the alternate-shot (foursomes), I think we've got a really good shot at winning".

On paper, this may have the makings of another tally in the win column for the U.S. But don't underestimate the gutty Grillo, or the grinding-in-out abilities of Viva Jhonny Vegas, who has been among the brightest lights on the worldwide squad so far.

Trump is slated to travel this weekend to his home at Trump National Bedminster, some 30 miles away.

"We hope he comes and he'll be welcomed by us and by our players", Monahan said.

The Internationals, who have won only once in 11 Presidents Cup competitions, must gain 13 ½ of the 20 remaining points to win this time.

"It sucks sitting, there's no question", Hoffman said. "We are not endorsing a party".

"How can you not do that when you have three of our presidents?"

"This is a non-partisan event", Monahan said. Here are the matches that'll take place in the early session, as well as look back at a dominant Friday for the United States and what should be another intriguing early session on Saturday.

Mathematically, the worldwide team could be done Saturday, the first day of a double session - four matches of foursomes in the morning, following by four matches of fourballs in the afternoon. Jordan Spieth has often said that playing with Bush allowed him not to get too intimidated by anything he faced in golf. "It's something you're always concerned with", he said. "I'm the worst "Three Amigos" dancer", Mickelson said.

It is standard procedure for the Presidents Cup to invite the occupant of the White House. I can't tell you what that's been in the past.

The scene was far removed from the controversy at National Football League games recently, in which many players have protested during the national anthem against racial disparities in the criminal justice system.

While Price is busy shoring up morale, USA captain Steve Stricker will be urging his team not to be complacent. "But I think our team and our boys are ready to rally behind everyone, and hopefully we can finish strong later on in the week". "We had it a couple up there going through 14, they kind of turned it on and made a few putts. So that's what we're planning on doing".

Kisner who came very close to grabbing his first major at the PGA Championship can get a nice consolation prize by helping the Americans win the President's Cup. Previous heads of states to take part include South African President Thabo Mbeki, who appeared on stage with Nelson Mandela in 2003 at the opening ceremony at Fancourt.

The opening US duo is already 1 up through one.
