Congratulations USA Team!

My favorite tournaments include The Masters, Ryder Cup, and Presidents Cup. After the loss in Wales of the Ryder Cup, I was thrilled to see the Americans win the Presidents Cup.

Even though I like Greg Norman, Adam Scott, Ernie Els, and others on the International team, I will always cheer on the Americans. Frankly I know golf fans that seem to always choose the other team, whether the Europeans or Internationals. I've never understood if you were born in America, why you wouldn't root for the Americans? This victory is especially needed during our country's economic tumult, involvement in wars, and general malaise.

It was nice to see the Americans' fighting spirit and the closeness among the team.
Both the rookies and veterans alike did well. Tiger certainly had to make everyone pause and think he might break Jack's record of 18 Majors. Maybe still too soon to say that, but his game certainly looks better than we've seen in quite awhile.

Congrats Freddie, John Cook, proud father Jay Haas, and the members of the US team!!!
