Is the President’s Cup too boring because of Fred Couples and Greg Norman?

While some of the President’s Cup matches have been entertaining, we wonder why this year has not seen the same kind of “spark” from the players in competition? Of course, the President’s Cup has never been as dramatic or tense as the Ryder’s Cup. But this year’s President’s Cup is somewhat of a yawner.

Well, we figured out the problem: Fred Couples and Greg Norman–who have the chance to know each other’s selection before pairings–are not putting the best against the best. To have a President’s Cup when Ernie Els (who is tied now as the top point getter for the World and who historically has been the leader of the International team) does NOT play Tiger Woods in the foursomes, fourball, or singles is a complete shame.

And this competition-avoidance has afflicted the other matches, too, where it seems the captains are making their selections by trying to score easy points in a mismatch pairing, instead of pairing the highest seeded teams together. Fred Couples and Greg Norman, you both are better than that!
