Tiger Woods will undoubtably be the greatest star at the current month’s Presidents Cup, yet one of the International group’s top players is advising the home group not to support Woods, or the remainder of the U.S. group, so far as that is concerned.
In a meeting with the Herald Sun, Australian Adam Scott emphasized the significance of a home game. The current year’s occasion is at Royal Melbourne in Melbourne, Australia, and it’s the first run through the Presidents Cup has been played in Australia since 2011, which was likewise at Royal Melbourne. Scott, presently 39, was additionally in that group, which lost to Fred Couples’ U.S. squad 19-15.
“Last time it was excessively well disposed,” Scott told the Herald Sun. “Bluntly, we need the home-swarm bit of leeway, and I’ll be frustrated on the off chance that they are rooting for eagerly Tiger or anybody on the U.S. group.”
The International group will again be the dark horses this year. The U.S. has won 10 of the 12 matchups since the first in 1994. This will be Scott’s ninth Presidents Cup. He made his presentation when the groups tied 17-17 out of 2003, yet he’s been on the losing side from that point onward.
This year won’t be any simpler. One of skipper Ernie Els’ top players, Australian Jason Day, as of late needed to pull back with back issues, and the group currently comprises of seven new kids on the block. So will the fans help the home squad? We’ll need to keep a watch out.
“I’m not saying be a poor game, however one test our group has consistently had is increasing a home-soil advantage since it’s uncommon that stars like Tiger and DJ (Dustin Johnson) come to Australia or Korea where we play these things, and local people are eager to consider them to be much as anybody in our group,” Scott said. “In any case, while we value them without a doubt, we don’t need to root for them.”
The Presidents Cup is Dec. 13-15, albeit dependent on the time contrast the first round of activity starts on the night of Dec. 12 in the U.S.
