"Look, we have social injustices in this country and we should all strive to eliminate them", said five-time major victor Phil Mickelson, who will play in his 12th Presidents Cup.

From the press coverage, to the mood of the players on both sides, to the lack of buildup, there's no bones about it that the Presidents Cup doesn't have anywhere near the electric atmosphere surrounding it as the Ryder Cup does. The American team's lowest-ranked player is Phil Mickelson at No. 30, and generally American depth has prevailed in the cup. There was also the time that Clinton, H.W. Bush and Gerald Ford played together at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in 1995. "I would love to see what kind of person he was then".

Despite the language barrier, global team captain Nick Price said Matsuyama's experience had made him a valuable contributor in the team room as well as on the course. "I don't know what his struggles have been".

"Do I necessarily think it's the right time to do it? No".

In 11 attempts, the global team have earned just one victory and one tie.

"On Monday night as a team, we sat down and we decided that as a team, we wanted to donate some money to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma", Price said. His partnership with Spieth gave early lift each day, and the two could pair again against the Internationals. In these matches, each player will play his own ball, taking the best score on each hole between teammates.

Team USA are taking on an global side led by Nick Price at Liberty National golf club in New Jersey this week.

Koepka believes this group, which includes six Presidents Cup rookies, will become familiar in team events.

The course, which has hosted two FedExCup PGA Tour events, was re-routed from its original design to make for more exciting match-play action. Three of this season's four major winners are in their 20s.

Also, professional golf involves a different demographic than other sports do.

Woods was asked if could be the best in golf again if he returned to 100 percent health. He has never been voted the PGA Tour player of the year.

"He finished with a flourish on Sunday", Price said "So I think he was looking forward to this week". I didn't play good. "I'm hitting it really straight".

When the national anthem is played during the opening ceremony of the President's Cup on Thursday, the United States golf team will be standing.

. It's nice to be out here with some great assistant captains and our captain. He responded with a tie for sixth at the TPC Boston.

One of the players Davis Love III looked up to was Fred Couples.

There are few formats more conducive to hanging out than an alternate-shot practice round. The other part of the equation, perhaps more importantly, is remaining relatively injury-free.

For the first time he genuinely seems relatable, and increasingly, as he said, "one of the guys".

It took about 10 seconds for the table spanning the entire room to slant decidedly in the direction of a certain 14-time major champ. "It's just a matter of if he's healthy enough can still feel like he can go".
