It's turned out to be a bit of a shame that this Presidents Cup has been played in the middle of night for most American fans. The Jack Nicklaus Golf Club has played way better than it was billed in pre-tournament imagery, the fan reactions and passion have been oh-so-refreshing and while the golf has been shockingly bad for elite players at times, the matches have been compelling.
For a change, the cup is actually up for grabs going into Sunday!
Whether it's the format change, some home field advantage or just more spirited play from the new International blood, Doug Ferguson explains that Sunday's finale should be close.
Not since the matches were tied going into Sunday in 2005 has the Presidents Cup featured a final day of drama.
"This is what we all came here for — for it to be exciting tomorrow," International captain Nick Price said. "I'm going to ask my team to go and play golf tomorrow. Each and every one of them has to play golf, and play to the very best of their ability. That's all we can do."
