Much of the pre-Presidents Cup talk was on how the International team 'must win.' The U.S. has no desire to let that happen. The 10th Presidents Cup gets underway Thursday with six fourball matches, each pitting two Americans against two members from the International team.

The Internationals have been historically bad in the opening round of foursomes, trailing a combined 13-5 over the past three installments of the event. This year, however, Price expects the start of the event to not be so lopsided because he believes his players' ability to play their own ball during the first round will allow them a better chance to adapt to the team aspect of the event. Vegas and the Four-Ball Betting Odds and Predictions on the other hand, aren't so sure that the Internationals will fair much better, if at all.
One of the prominent leaders of the American squad, Phil Mickelson takes great pride in Presidents Cup longevity and has achieved plenty of success in his career but on Wednesday the five-time major winner said his status as the only golfer to play in every Presidents Cup is among those that he takes the most pride in.
