  • Rickie Fowler will play for the American team in the Presidents Cup

The return of Nick Price for a third term as captain has added to the team's stability, and the glimpse of what might be possible offered in Incheon has impassioned worldwide players, Scott said. The following day, there will be four foursome matchups in the morning and four four-ball matches in the afternoon before wrapping up Sunday with 12 singles matches that will likely determine the victor. I take the blame for that.

Jason Day believes the International Team can use their status as massive underdogs to their advantage as they look to improve a miserable record in the Presidents Cup. The team of 12 American players will take to the course just across the river from New York City, but dont expect them to kneel whilst the anthem is played. Then, basically, just as I said, just keeping waiting for what my surgeon says.

"Patrick and I are very serious and very focused on [Thursday] in this alternate-shot format where we have been very successful in this tournament - in either tournament", Spieth said on Wednesday.

"I let the team down two years ago in Korea", Day said. "It's been a golf event that united the world's best players together, united fans all over the world in a team competition that has done and will continue to do a lot of goodwill". 'I didn't have a good Presidents Cup and it was close. I was ranked No. 1 on the team for a reason, and I didn't show up.

"I'm hoping that I can redeem myself this week", Day said. "We're starting to get that feeling that there's some history there".

It would be the first time a sitting president has attended the event since Bill Clinton was at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia in 2000.

Hideki Matsuyama, the Internationals' top-ranked player, will team up with South African former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel to take on FedEx Cup champion Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler.

Day said that the atmosphere in the team room is different this time.

41 year old Woods has not played a tournament since withdrawing prior to the second round of the Dubai Desert Classic in February. All served as honorary chairman of the Presidents Cup while in office. "We had a good talk and we all realized that there are things going on in the world that aren't right".

"We've always respected the office of the presidency, so when we extended that invitation as part of the same process we've gone through in previous years and when [Trump] accepted we were really excited", Monahan said.

"For them to lift me up, too, and make me feel young again is important".
