I enjoyed the President's Cup this year, although I will admit that it
rarely seems to bring the same e***ment as The Ryder Cup (and this year
was no exception).
But it occurs to me that, for no obvious reason other than history, this is
a very asymmetrical situation. The US plays every year and both the
Internationals and the Europeans play every other year. Plus the Europeans
never play the Internationals, at least in a "Cup" competition.
A 3-way competition seems like a huge stretch. But a 3-year rotation instead
of 2 would seem very logical (Euro's vs. Internationals being added). Has
this ever been discussed?
At a glance this whole thing would seem to disadvantage the US team, forcing
them to fit this into their schedules every year. OTOH, SOMEBODY must be
making a ton of money here. There is no prize money being paid, spectators
out the wazoo, and TV rights that are in demand (by golf standards) across
the world. So maybe this is an ultimate advantage to the US (or at least
some power in the US).
