You can just sense the underwhelmed enthusiam in the various Presidents Cup preview pieces.
Lorne Rubenstein offers the Canadian perspective while Doug Ferguson previews the Cup by considering its recent history.
golf.com's Michael Walker says the world isn't watching and offers this interesting comment from Rubenstein about the future of the matches:
"The one problem I could see is if Tiger or Mickelson decided not to play," Rubenstein said. "They'll play as long as Nicklaus is captain because they're not going to snub Nicklaus. But if there's a new captain and Tiger decides not to play, then I think the Presidents Cup would have a real problem."Gary Van Sickle says "few serious international golf competitions have received less buildup than this week's Presidents Cup, to be played in Montreal," then rants about the FedEx Cup ad saturation.
But as he notes in his entertaining look at the teams and possible scenarios, it may all be worth it if we can get this on Sunday...
1. Tiger Woods vs. Rory Sabbatini: The mouth of the south against the king of the hill.
If the Captain's have any heart at all, they will give us the pleasure of watching these lovebirds in singles play.
