Tiger Woods using his tourney for Prez Cup prep

Adam Scott asks the impossible: Don’t cheer for Tiger Woods

" I have seen Olympics when I was just eight or nine years old so it means a lot to me to get a medal there".

Sure, the Presidents Cup is on Adam Scott's home soil and the 2013 Masters victor is beloved.

"It's great the guys were able to come here and play.to be able to compete, shake off a little rust if they have any, work on some things they are going to need to either win this event or be ready for next week, just be in the competitive flow for two weeks". There are a lot of guys who have put their hands up to want to play Tiger ... but I will not put a guy in there that's going to feel overwhelmed.

"I've finally come from behind to win a Major championship, I finally know that I can do that now".

"When I took the job as captain, I jokingly said I'd like to be a playing captain", he said. "The season ended differently, players shut it down and then they geared right back up for Australia and we got beat pretty badly", recalled Woods.

"I don't want to say Tiger doesn't have a good record but you look at his match-play record through the years and I think the other players, they really get up to play against Tiger, as well they should".

"When do I relinquish the captaincy role and officially have someone be the captain?" he stated. "Now the guys are playing this week to get ready".

"I took some time off, did some things around the house, and that's about it", Woods said on a story posted to his website, speaking about life since winning the Zozo Championship in October to tie Snead. He told the website of the decision, "I just don't want to go over there. If you don't, it's between us".

"I've loved all the trips I've had down to Melbourne, especially just the style of golf I love, that kind of hard, fast, links-style of golf", he noted.

Els confirmed that his 12-man team had been posturing for a chance to take on the 82-time PGA TOUR victor man-on-man since Woods officially selected himself to play. What he brings to the table, the intensity, the passion, the competitiveness, the drive to do the best he possibly can, you're going to see that out of him, I'm sure, and it's going to be a lot of fun to be a part of. Rahm is also trying to repeat a win in United States for the first time - a feat he has achieved three times in Europe.

"I'm able to make moves that I haven't for quite some time", he told his site.

"I'm really focused on the first couple of sessions". "Jim Furyk and I had to go tee it up together, and nothing that we had prepared for, but that was the way everything fell because there was going to be an odd group out based on everyone having to play".

While Fowler is a late addition to the Presidents Cup team, he's enthusiastic about the chance to play.

"And then also, when do I play". Trying to figure that out now. We've got four sessions before we get to the singles.
