Two years ago, at Liberty National, the International Team did not put up much of a fight for the Presidents ' Cup – they were out shined early. But the 2019 Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne was a little special and it won't be easy to forget.
For the first time since 2003, the Internationals reached Sunday Singles 2 points ahead of the U.S, with a great chance to end the 21-year-old winless streak since their first and only Presidents Cup victory.
Although it didn't happen, the captain of the International skipper was pleased with the overall performance of his underdog team, as they came very close to upsetting one of the greatest golf teams of all time.
Not so much because the U.S. narrowly beat the Internationals 16-14, but rather because they led Ten-eight heading to Sunday singles - a first since 2003. They took the contest down to the wire, despite the fact that 10 of the U.S. team players ranked higher on paper than their best.
