Nicklaus prefers President Cup format to Ryder Cup
Jack Nicklaus has been speaking ahead of this weeks Presidents Cup about how the trophy is developing and one thing he believes they get right over the Ryder Cup is the format.
While the Presidents Cup follows the familar Foursomes, Fourball, Foursomes, Fourball, Singles pattern, it does see all 12 players playing for both sides at all times meaning that nobody sits out. The event is also played over four days as opposed to the three days of the Ryder Cup.
In a press conference this week Nicklaus said:
“I'd love to see the Ryder Cup change its structure,
“I like the Presidents Cup structure,” Nicklaus went on to say. “And the reason I like the Presidents Cup structure is you can't hide a player. Everybody has to play every day. I mean, guys didn't work for a whole year or two years to make a team and have to sit on the sideline because a captain says he doesn't think he's playing well.
