Spieth and Thomas hope to reprise buddy act at Presidents Cup

Patrick Reed Pulls Out the Patriotic Threads for the Presidents Cup

On the day Rory McIlroy revealed plans for a full body MOT and a three-month sabbatical, former world No 1 Woods, 41, said: 'I don't know what the future holds for me.

"I've worn them a lot around the house and stuff like that, and practice", said Reed at the time.

Golfers are among the most Republican of supporters in the American sports world.

He has played in every Presidents Cup since 1994 and ever Ryder Cup since 1995.

The Australian was world No.2 then and ahead of this year's edition of the tournament, starting tonight at the Liberty National Golf Club in New Jersey, he said was ready for some redemption.

Asked why he wants to return to golf, given his back problems, Woods said, "I think it's fun". My timetable is basically what my surgeon says.

It will take either side 15.5 points to take out the Presidents Cup this week but those won on Thursday may be the most important of all in the context of the contest. Fowler said. "There's no better backdrop for an event like this".

If Trump were to show, it would likely bring a cloud of controversy to the event, even if Monahan is hopeful that Trump's presence would be positive.

"He's been on 20-plus (United States teams)".

"We have the same mindset", Berger told me last week.

Prior to this weekend's National Football League games, players knelt, sat and entire teams stayed in their respective locker rooms during the anthem.

"Obviously there's a lot of unrest right now, whether it's political or racial, in this country", said Woods, who is acting as an assistant captain to Steve Stricker this week. "You know, they are both very good friends, and I think we've got a great pairing in those two".

"We are going to do what we always do; take off our hat and put our hands across our chest and over our heart and respect the flag". "We're doing our best to try and just control what we can control because tomorrow is a big day in shutting down any momentum they may feel".

Mickelson also was a captain's pick by Jay Haas two years ago, posting a 3-0-1 record as the US pulled out a 15 1/2 to 14 1/2 victory at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in Incheon, South Korea. The biennial match play event between the US and a team drawn from around the world tees off today at Liberty National Golf Club. Previous heads of states to take part include South African President Thabo Mbeki, who appeared on stage with Nelson Mandela in 2003 at the opening ceremony at Fancourt.

It wouldn't be the first golf tournament Trump has seen in person in since becoming president. Not since 2005 has more than one president come to the competition (Clinton and George H.W. Bush).

John Hopkins Sr., columnist for the Global Golf Post, got the audience to yell three "hip hip hoorays" for Longhurst of Britain, who wrote a weekly column for the London Sunday Times for 40 years and was the first golf TV personality for the BBC from the 1950s until his death in 1978.
