Outside of the obvious, "We won more matches", "We scored more points", there's one real forehead slapping reason the US squad won this year's and most year's Presidents Cup competitions. We have better players.
According to the Official World Golf Ranking points system as of 11/18/2011 the average ranking of the 12 US players was 18.5. The Internationals 34.6. The 19th ranked player in the world would typically beat the 35th ranked player over a series of matches.
|So sorry Uncle Albert.|
Go ahead, they'll make more.
