Well ladies and gentleman, it looks like golf’s biggest fan, Mother Nature is at it again. For the second straight day, rain stops play at the President’s Cup. Maybe the Phil patting Keegan on the butt thing stopped play? Maybe it was because of Amanda Dufner or Amanda Balionis’s good looks that made it rain? All kidding aside, rain delays, although they suck, could lead to potential momentum swings or make the team that’s leading even stronger or lead to both teams falling apart. I say this because some players may start losing confidence in their swings especially if they were off to a hot start. It’s tough to maintain a hot streak after a delay. However, team USA did in fact maintain their lead after the two-hour and 30 minute delay but play was stopped for the day due to darkness and the rain delay obviously had a major effect on that. Can team USA keep it going on Saturday leading into the final round Sunday? Or will the International squad make a comeback?

As I mentioned before, although the International team has some President’s Cup rookies, they are still a very solid team with Adam Scott, Jason Day, Ernie Els and Angel Cabrera on their side along with some fresh talent.I still think the US squad will pull it out though because they still have too much fire power. If Keegan Bradley, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar can keep up their play then there’s no doubt the President’s Cup will be over in a hurry. Steve Stricker and Jordan Spieth also have been playing some great golf and a lot of fans were wondering if Jordan could come out and have a great round or two. Of course you got the typical Tiger heads that probably could care less for the kid and want to call everyone else “Tiger haters”. Well, let’s get this straight, people are going to dislike Tiger for certain reasons, especially because he gets talked about when he shouldn’t but in this case he’s playing solid golf. People that call others “Tiger haters” are likely people who only follow Tiger and watch no other golf.

That’s we call in the sports world, a “casual” fan. I’m not a big fan of him because I don’t think he remembers where he came from and the one thing that I learned that is extremely important in life is NEVER forget where you came from and I’ll leave it at that, I would’ve been a big fan otherwise but he’s definitely playing some great golf out there with “Kuch” no doubt. Anyways, Tiger, Phil, Keegan, Kuch and the rest of the US squad look to continue their winning ways as they go into Saturday with the lead, 4 1/2 – 3 1/2. Let’s see how Saturday’s round turns out! Here’s the latest look at the scores:–golf.html. On that note, hope you all enjoy round three of the President’s Cup and keep it real, from Chicago with love.
