US Presidents Cup team says anthem not the right time to protest

Ryder Cup Captain Claims Donald Trump "Is Right" About Anthem Protests

Patrick Reed Pulls Out the Patriotic Threads for the Presidents Cup

Woods, who used to loathe team events like the Presidents Cup, now embraces it as one of the most important events on his calendar, because it provides him his only lifeline to the game he's unable to compete in for the moment - and maybe forever. Except for the odd occasion when Professional Golfers' Association champion Justin Thomas or Rickie Fowler comes over to his house in south Florida to chip in his backyard practice facility, he's not around the players in this environment. "It's like a weird way that helps our team out because we don't like the other one getting more credit than the other".

While that perception of golf has subsided to a large degree in the United Kingdom in recent years, across the English Channel the same can not be said and it's the nation's European Tour professionals that are most outspoken about it.

It's possible they won't even be called on to do that. "While it's maybe coming away a bit from that stereotype in the United Kingdom, it hasn't in France". "You have to make them as comfortable as you can because it is nerve-wracking". So everybody in France has an excuse to hate golf. They were just conversations about each other's lives.

"We can catch up on sleep, and we're doing one round and one round tomorrow in an alternate-shot format, it nearly feels like you're playing less golf".

"I'm hoping that we're going to change that tomorrow". "Anyone who is here is probably a victor, they've won something". That figured to be the core of American golf for years to come, and it almost was.

"For 90% of the population, he's probably right", Cevaer told bunkered.co.uk. "I just don't know what my body is going to allow me to do".

Although Woods said Wednesday that he's "very optimistic" about the progress with his health, he admitted there is "no rush" for him to get back on the links. "In terms of official numbers, it's up there at 400,000 registered members - but on TV it airs on a private channel so its outreach is to people that are already golf fans". If the scores are tied, the two teams share the Cup.

If Trump were to show, it would likely bring a cloud of controversy to the event, even if Monahan is hopeful that Trump's presence would be positive. Then, there's the media coverage.

Daniel Berger: "He's the greatest player of all time, so when he talks, you listen". "That would be huge. You can't say "no" to everything".

"I don't think there's ever going to be a situation where I don't recognize the national anthem". We all appreciate his character.

No one else was playing great. Those guys have their right and freedom of speech to do what they want.

Tiger Woods is relegated to cart riding during the Presidents Cup, his return to golf uncertain.

John Hopkins Sr., columnist for the Global Golf Post, got the audience to yell three "hip hip hoorays" for Longhurst of Britain, who wrote a weekly column for the London Sunday Times for 40 years and was the first golf TV personality for the BBC from the 1950s until his death in 1978.

Woods ended his comments with a sobering admission that his playing days may, in fact, be behind him.
