Going into this week, we (Americans) were ready for a route...total domination in the Land Down Under. After Day 1 the Internationals had a 4-1 lead over the Americans and it was not looking good for Captain Woods - the only point on the board came from Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas. I feel very comfortable saying if it wasn't for those two, this American team loses by a bazillion. Day 2 was more of the same but showed a little fire in the belly of the Americans. Then it happened....Justin Thomas and Tiger woods dropped the putter (literally) and saved the event.

What a way to grab the attention of your teammates but also the Internationals...when it's time to go...we go. As we discuss more in the podcast, this is easily the most Presidents Cup coverage we've ever watched but wow did the comeback make this worth it. I mean imagine this scenario as a kid growing up in Louisville, KY.
Grow up idolizing Tiger Woods
Become a Professional golfer but never really get to play with your idol due to other circumstances (see below)
Watch Tiger self destruct and then not be able to get healthy
Personally work every day to get Tiger to come play with you, go to dinner and just be around people as he was at his lowest health wise
Then get to be on a team captained by said idol and be able to drop a match winning putt when he is your teammate
Those type of emotions and stories are unscriptable. I've never been the biggest JT fan but wow, I'm all in now. He is officially my 2nd favorite JT...sorry Justin Timberlake is still rollin in the top spot.
The Americans come out on Sunday (Saturday in the US) and just dominate singles to complete a historic comeback in Australia. Absolutely love team play and minus Patrick Reed being on the team, I love every second of this. Heres to getting my emotions in check and not getting to hyped for the Ryder Cup in 2020! We're coming for you Whistling Straits....
