Five Things That Should Excite You About the Presidents Cup

The Presidents Cup kicks off on Thursday, or Wednesday night if you're here in the States, and while it might always be considered the half-sister of the Ryder Cup, this year's event just feels different. Here are five things that should get you excited about the United States versus the International team, four days running.

5.) Steve Williams and Tiger Woods, The Handshake (That We Will Get To See on TV) -- Yes, they've got palm on palm before (Tiger actually has with a lot of people *heyyo*), but this will the first time that they've done it since the last time they did it since the last time they worked together. Isn't that exciting?! This storyline will be dead by the time all four players hit their opening tee shots, but hey, it's something.

4.) Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk Paired Together -- Well, I couldn't think of anything else for number four, so I checked my archives from three Presidents Cups ago and found this one. Still seems relevant.

3.) All Those Darn Australians -- Yes, there are five Aussies in this year's field, and on their home turf, should set out to really make an impression. The good news is, a couple of them might be playing the best golf of anyone Down Under, and it'll be interesting to see how the handle the pressures this week.

2.) Geoff Ogilvy's Mustache -- Just look at that thing! Incredible stuff.

1.) Royal Melbourne -- All joking aside, this golf course is insane and will be on full display during primetime in the States. I got an offer when I was caddying at St. Andrews to go play there for free, and guess what, I didn't take the guy up on it. Like you needed another reason to think I was a complete moron.
