Here Are The Presidents Cup Teams

The 2007 Presidents Cup starts this Thursday (Sept 27th) at the Royal Montreal in Canada. Team USA takes their 4-1-1 record into Canada against the International Team. Below are the 12 man teams for both sides.

Team USA

  • Tiger Woods - What can you say about Tiger. Seven wins, 1 major, numerous records, and 1 playoff championship title.

  • Jim Furyk - He had 1 win and eight top-10's with a runner-up finish at the U.S. Open.

  • Phil Mickelson - He won a couple tournaments, but Phil is Phil... anything can happen.

  • Zack Johnson - He had his first major at the Masters and his second AT&T Classic. Tied for second in the TOUR Championship with Steve Stricker.

  • Charles Howell III - Ended five year win-less drought by winning the Nissan Open and beating Mickelson.

  • David Toms - He didn't win this year and he had only 2 top-5 finishes.

  • Scott Verplank - He had 9 top-10's and a victory at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship.

  • Steve Stricker - Without a doubt the most improved player on the tour this year. Finished 2nd behind Tiger Woods for the FedEx Cup.

  • Stewart Cink - He had 6 top-10's in 23 starts and qualified for the TOUR Championship, but a rather disappointing season.

  • Woody Austin - He made the team by finishing runner-up at the PGA Championship. Won the Stanford St. Jude Championship in Memphis with a closing round of 62.

  • Hunter Mahan - He won the Travelers Championship for his first PGA Tour win. Tied for fifth in TOUR Championship.

  • Lucas Glover - He was a captain's pick with a very weak season. Only 3 top-10's in 27 starts.

International Team

  • Ernie Els - He didn't have a very good year with a 2nd at the Verizon and tied for fourth at the British Open.

  • Adam Scott - He won the Shell Houston Open and a runner-up at the Mercedes Championship.

  • Vijay Singh - He had 2 early wins in the season, but missed back-to-back cuts and he's fallen to 12th in the world.

  • Geoff Ogilvy - He had 6 top-10's in 22 starts, but no wins.

  • Rory Sabbatini - He made a name for himself this year on and off the course. Won at the Colonial and had five other top-3 finishes. Finished in the top-10 in the World Golf Rankings.

  • K.J. Choi - He had a great year with wins at The Memorial and The AT&T National. Finished 5th on the money list.

  • Retief Goosen - He has a quiet year with the only bright spot at Augusta finishing runner-up to Zack Johnson.

  • Angel Cabrera - He had the stunning victory at the U.S. Open at Oakmont by holding of Tiger Woods. Hasn't done anything since the win.

  • Tevor Immelman - He didn't do that much this season other than finishing 3rd at the WGC-Match Play and in Maui.

  • Stuart Appleby - He had an up and down season. He had a chance to win his fourth consecutive Mercedes Championship, but let it slip away.

  • Nick O'Hern - His only highlight was defeating Tiger Woods in 20 holes at the WGC-Match Play event.

  • Mike Weir - He'll have a lot of pressure on his shoulders after Gary Player chose him as a captain's. He had only two top-10's and currently ranks outside the top 40 in the World Golf Rankings.pick.

Team USA looks very strong again and I see them holding up the Presidents Cup come Sunday afternoon.

Do you agree?

The U.S. golfers looked pretty dominate. It was amazing to see Tiger Woods choke on the 18th hole by hitting it into the water against Mike Weir. You don't see Tiger do that very often.
