International appeal for an American golf fan

There's a lot to like about host team in Presidents Cup

Maybe I just can’t help rooting for the underdogs, or maybe it’s the brash opinion of the prognosticators, but I find myself cheering for the Internationals in the Presidents Cup and the Europeans in the Ryder Cup.

Today’s PGA Tour has proved that competition from all parts of the globe can win in any given week. What makes anyone think that the men from America have any distinct advantage over their competition, especially in a foreign location? Given the lackluster performance of Dustin Johnson and Gary Woodland, two players whom I admire greatly, and the body language of the rest of the team, I give the Internationals an early edge to win the cup (“Internationals race to 4-1 lead in Presidents Cup,” Dec. 12).

Tiger Woods said in an interview that he has a plan. It’s back to the drawing board.
