2011 Golf Presidents CupU.S. defends crown in the President's Cup with an international team (excluding Europe) wanting to end the tyranny Yankee. Never before had come as two matched OX the biennial meeting and it seems the Royal Melbourne Golf (U.S. only time he has given) may be the ideal venue to defeat the Americans.

The Americans, led by Fred Couples, put everything in their arsenal to try what would be a meltdown after losing to Europe in the Ryder Cup goes also lost the President's Cup, a competition dominated by a clear 6-1, would be a setback for national pride. Nobody wants to miss the appointment and even Tiger Woods, who was not classified, has been one of the captain's choices to make clear the importance of the 'battle'.

Former world number one made his mark in the 2009 Cup in San Francisco in which he finished with a spectacular 5-0 in four days to remember the 'Tigre'. The good feelings left in his return to Australia Open optimism lead the American group with the lowest form of Mickelson and Furyk.

The first story of the President's will occur in the last 'foursome' on Thursday as they will face Tiger and Scott. This represents very morbid when the acutal caddy Steve Williams of the aussie.

Lots of newbies
United States go with confidence but with some doubts about both rookie. Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson, Webb Simpson, Nick Watney and Bubba Watson face their first Presidents Cup, while only three men (Schwartzel, Day and Kim) played their first competition against the Americans.

The great hope of the international team, captained by Greg Norman, are Australians. Playing at home has a great influence and the present Australian golf is brutal with two men in the 'Top Ten' World Ranking: Adam Scott (7 °) and Jason Day (8 º). However, other countries also nurture this 'great team'. Nothing more, nothing less than the South African Charl Schwartzel (winner of the Masters 2011) and Ernie Els (seven President's on his back), Korean KJ Choi (winner of The Players, 2011), or the great promise of Asian golf Japanese Ryo Ishikawa , how good image left in the last edition of the President's Cup in San Francisco.

The format is similar to the Ryder Cup on Thursday begin hostilities (from 03.00 to 8.00 live on Canal + Golf) with six games of 'foursomes' (alternate-shot) on Friday will be the turn for 'fourballs' ( best ball). From 01.30 to 8.00 on Canal + Golf. Saturday will host five 'foursomes' in the morning and five 'fourballs' in the afternoon (from 21.00 am to 08.00). Sunday will decide the President's Cup with the twelve individual (00.30 to 07.00).

The first clashes for the first foursomes.

Bubba Watson / Webb Simpson (USA) - Ernie Els (RSA) / Ryo Ishikawa (JPN)
Bill Haas / Nick Watney (USA) - Geoff Ogilvy (AUS) / Charl Schwartzel (RSA)
