Scott questions future of the Presidents Cup
In recent comments when speaking to Agence France-Presse, Adam Scott has questioned the future legitimacy of this weeks Presidents Cup:
The Internationals need to step up and win the thing and make it a real competition," Scott said "This is a big year for us. It's our time ... I think it's crucial. We have to win this year. The Cup loses any credibility whatsoever if (the Internationals) don't start winning soon."
the International Captain, Nick Price has also weighed in suggesting that the depth of the American Team is causing an imbalance in the contest and leaving his team with a near impossible task:
"There are a few occasions we did really well, but the US team is a lot stronger,"
Price has also spent time speaking to PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem in an attempt to change the qualifying structure for the American Team:
"The commissioner didn't want to do anything about the changes for this year. We're going to do the best we can with the given points structure ... It's going to be a tough job for us to win the Cup."
The Presidents Cup is played between an American and the rest of the World minus Europe. Since it's inception in 1994 the International team have recorded only one victory in 1998. This weeks event will be played at Muirfield Village, Ohio and foolows the same format as the Ryder Cup.
