    So your saying there’s a chance.

    One thing that helps the decimated internationals is a lot less bomber power on the US team by not having the DJs and Brooks and Bryson’s of the world. Even gooch.

    Dj is playing high level golf. Bryson and Brooks are still working their way back—both looking more lean and less massive, which should help moving forward—but their bomber power is always a big loss in a team event.

    Now playing in Europe no doubt the US inadvertently benefits from an aging but steady Eddie and solid putter like Kisner; whom would not be on this team if not for the black balling going on.

    Same with Billy; who im concerned for wasting so much of his energy with this whole situation.

    Billy we all know exactly how you feel more than any other player. But your arguments are mostly emotional. Breathe dude. Relax. Between being tough on everyone off the course and still tough on yourself on the course; I mean seriously this guy gonna need a long hiatus soon if he keeps all this up.

    Anyway we can’t trust Billy’s putter as much as Kis but he too will be more euro player like, steady, which may benefit on the European set up.

    Funny thing is now the euro tour is supposedly the world tour, shouldn’t they represent the international team.
    That would help Trevor.

    It’s also funny listening to all the Europeans saying they have less of a problem with euros at Wentworth and even taking part in the Ryder cup. I bet they don’t.

    They have problems with guys like Gooch and Ancer who never got to the point where they played plenty euro events like Reed. Now Sergio didn’t play wentworth much either but he is in the somewhat invited group because he has supported the euro tour more. The argument from rahm is because the euros tour is not as big as the pga tour.

    It seems to me these euros on the pga tour want their cake and eat it too. They want the pga tour to feed most of the euro elites; but then also to let the LIv euros come back to the euros tour; maybe even play the Ryder cup; but not in favor of the Americans return to the pga tour. And I’m pretty sure they prefer no LIv Americans in the Ryder cup.

    In short:
    #Contradictions abound

    But I better stop now…I don’t want to get censored.

      The Presidents Cup was created by the PGA Tour to keep our guys tuned for the Ryder Cup……it was created to showcase international players who are not eligible for the Ryder Cup, simple as that… one has ever proposed Euros on the team, they have the Ryder Cup, international guys had nothing prior to Presidents Cup. Again, be careful about promoting LIV on these comment pages and keep the comments below “essay” size. Please. You don’t get censored, you get “edited” the way LIV hands its players scripted comments, thus pretty much controlling their comments to the media, which doesn’t have much regard for the exhibition series. Don’t “control” your comments the way LIV controls what it’s guys say but again, no LIV promotion here…..we stand for human rights, free speech, not murdering Washington Posts correspondent who spoke out against “The Regime” and we are opposed to a government stealing from its employee pension plan to help Phil Mickelson pay off his gambling debts.
