What Trevor Immelman naming five rookies to Presidents Cup team means | Golf Today | Golf Channel

INTERNATIONAL TEAM LOOKS TO WIN FOR THE SECOND TIME SINCE THE COMPETITION'S FOUNDING HERE IS A LOOK AT THE ENTIRE INTERNATIONAL TEAM TREVOR IMMELMAN UNVEILED ANCHORED BY A COUPLE OF MASTERS CHAMPIONS IN HIDEKI MATSUYAMA AND ADAM SCOTT. ON THE LOWER LINE THE SIX CAPTAIN'S PICKS HE ANNOUNCED THIS MORNING DAMON, THE MAKEUP OF THE TEAM, WHAT STRIKES YOU ANYTHING THAT WILL CHANGE THE UNDERDOG STATUS AT ALL >> THERE'S A GREAT MOVIE "JAWS" 1975 WHEN THEY SEE THE GREAT WHITE FOR THE FIRST TIME AND RETURNS TO ROBERT AND SAYS, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED A BIGGER BOAT I THINK THAT'S THE SITUATION WE HAVE YOU CAN'T LOSE CAMERON SMITH AND JOAQUIN NIEMANN AND NOT FEEL THAT I LOOK AT THESE SIX PLAYERS IN PARTICULAR, AND THEY'RE FINE PLAYERS, THESE CAPTAIN'S PICKS, BUT THEY'VE PLAYED IN 60 TOTAL MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIPS, EAMON, NOT A TOP TEN TO BE FOUND. SI WOO 0 FOR 23. BEDROSIAN 0 FOR 11 MUNOZ 0FOR 12. CAM DAVIS 0 FOR 4. TAYLOR PENDRITH 0 FOR 2. 630 MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP STARTS. THE CAULDRON OF THIS GAME AND NOT A TOP TEN TO BE FOUND.

AND IT'S NOT AS IF THEY'RE A BUNCH OF GUYS TREVOR HAD TO CHOOSE FROM THAT COULD FILL THAT BILL I JUST THINK IT WAS ALREADY GOING TO BE A TOUGH MOUNTAIN 111-1 IN THE LIFETIME OF THE PRESIDENTS CUP I JUST DON'T SEE IT CHANGING IN TWO WEEKS' TIME IN CHARLOTTE >> I'M WITH YOU ON THAT ONE AS WELL EVEN THE SIX AUTOMATIC QUALIFIERS DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE THE DEPTH OF EXPERIENCE THAT YOU'D WANT. WHEN YOU LOOK AT TREVOR'S TEAM TOTAL, THE AVERAGE WORLD RANK IS 48.75, JUST OF THE SIX WHO ARE AUTOMATICALLY QUALIFIED FOR THE U.S. TEAM RIGHT NOW, THE AVERAGE WORLD RANK IS 7.1. DAVIS LOVE COULD FILL HIS 12 MAN WITHOUT GOING LOWER THAN 26 IN THE OFFICIAL WORLD GOLF RANKINGS WHERE IS WHERE KEVIN KISNER IS RIGHT NOW IF KISNER WERE TO BE ONE OF HIS SIX CAPTAIN'S PICKS TO ME IT GOES BEYOND JUST WHAT THEY'VE DONE IN OTHER TOURNAMENTS.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THEIR STATISTICAL PERFORMANCE ON THE GOLF COURSE LAST SEASON AS WELL, FIVE OF HIS GUYS ARE RANKED WORSE THAN 110th IN STROKES GAINED PUTTINGAND ONLY BEZUIDENHOUT, WHO WAS SIXTH ON TOUR LAST YEAR, IS INSIDE THE TOP 30 THREE OF THE GUYS ARE INSIDE THE TOP 50 IN DRIVING DISTANCE, ONLY THREE OF THEM. AND THIS IS THE GOLF COURSE THAT HISTORICALLY WE WARDS GUYS WHO HIT IT QUITE A LONG WAY, RORY McILROY HAS WON THERE, J.B. HOLMES, MAX HOMA HAS WON TWICE AND IS CONSIDERED MIDDLE OF THE PACK IN DRIVING. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS, THERE'S NOT A LOT TO GIVE YOU CONFIDENCE BUT THIS IS KIND OF THE TEAM THE WORD UNDERDOG WAS INVENTED FOR, I GUESS. >> THEY FELT THEY HAD SOME MOMENTUM OFF OF 2019 IN AUSTRALIA YOU HAD A TWO-POINT LOSS YOU HAD CAMERON SMITH PLAYING SO WELL AND JOAQUIN NIEMANN, ABRAHAM ANCER. YOU WERE STARTING TO BUILD A FOUNDATION, I THOUGHT, OF A TEAM THAT COULD COMPETE FOR THE PRESIDENTS CUP FOR THE NEXT DECADE YOU ALMOST HAVE TO DRAW AN INSIDE STRAIGHT TO BEGIN WITH TO BEAT THIS UNITED STATES TEAM IN THIS MATCH THE RYDER CUP HAS BEEN DIFFERENT, TIM FURYK USED TO TALK ABOUT IT.

WHY ARE WE SO RELAXED IN THE PRESIDENTS CUP AND SO TIGHT IN THE RYDER CUP. I THINK THE TALENT LEVEL ON THE UNITED STATES' SIDE IS MUCH DEEPER AND YOU COULDN'T HAVE THESE DEFECTIONS IF YOU'RE TREVOR IMMELMAN. AND THAT'S ON PAPER. WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN TWO WEEKS' TIME I TELL YOU WHAT, MY JAW WILL HIT THE FLOOR IF SOMEHOW THIS SQUAD IN THIS ERA ON THE ROAD IS ABLE TO FIND THE RALLYING CRY AND THE BIRDIES TO BEAT THIS AMERICAN SQUAD.

>> IT'S AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT IT'S A HUGE HOLE TO FILL WHEN YOU LOSE CAMERON SMITH, THE NUMBER TWO PLAYER, AND NIEMANN, 19th IN THE WORLD, IN ADDITION TO OOSTHUIZEN AND ANCER, POTENTIALLY MARC LEISHMAN AS A CAPTAIN'S PICK HE DID HAVE OPTIONS, MIN WOO LEE. JASON DAY, HE WOULD HAVE BROUGHT EXPERIENCE HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY FORM RIGHT NOW AND IS PHYSICALLY FRAGILE. HE GOT THE BEST, I THINK, HE COULD POSSIBLY HAVE PUT TOGETHER TO ME WHAT'S INTERESTING BECAUSE THIS EVENT IS BEING HELD AT QUAIL HOLLOW, THAT'S A VENUE ON THE PGA TOUR YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT.

THE AMERICAN TEAM WILL HAVE A VAST AMOUNT OF EXPERIENCE AT QUAIL HOLLOW AND THAT'S A LITTLE BIT LESS TRUE ON THE TEAM TREVOR IMMELMAN HAS PUT TOGETHER HERE. WE CAN SEE HOW OFTEN HIS TEAM HAS PLAYED AT QUAIL HOLLOW ADAM SCOTT WITH TEN APPEARANCES AND HIDEKI WITH FIVE ARE BY FAR THE MOST EXPERIENCED A LOT OF GUYS TWO OR THREE THERE ARE THREE GUYS DOWN THERE WHO HAVE NEVER PLAYED QUAIL HOLLOW AT ALL, AND THE ONLY GUYS WHO HAVE TOP 20s ARE HIDEKI AND ADAM SCOTT, AND HIDEKI'S CAME IN THE PGA CHAMPIONSHIP BACK IN 2017 THAT JUSTIN THOMAS WON.

IN ALMOST EVERY RESPECT IT SEEMS THE EDGE GOES TO THE AMERICAN TEAM HERE BOTH IN TERMS OF THE DEPTH OF TALENT OR THE NUMBERS THAT YOU CRUNCH ARE ALWAYS GOING TO LEAD YOU TO THE AMERICAN TEAM BUT THAT COULD HAVE THE EFFECT OF PUTTING MORE PRESSURE ON THE AMERICAN TEAM BECAUSE THE PSYCHO DYNAMICS OF THIS PRESIDENTS CUP ARE VERY DIFFERENT YOU HAVE THE AMERICAN TEAM WHO PROBABLY WANT TO SEND A MESSAGE, DAVIS LOVE HAS BEEN VOCAL, THEY WANT TO SEND A STATEMENT THIS IS THE BEST TOUR IN THE WORLD, WE HAVE THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE WORLD, AND WE'RE GOING TO GO OUT THERE AND PROVE IT WHERE IF YOU'RE TREVOR IMMELMAN'S TEAM WE DON'T HAVE ANY PRESSURE ON US ANYMORE EVERYONE THINKS WE'RE GOING TO BOOK PLANE TICKETS TO GO HOME ON SATURDAY NIGHT, AND LET'S GO OUT THERE AND PROVE SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND PUT MORE PRESSURE ON THE AMERICAN TEAM I THINK THAT'S KIND OF WHAT TREVOR HAS TO RELY ON AND THAT'S WHY HE TALKED ABOUT THE UNDERDOG STATUS QUITE A LOT DURING THAT INTERVIEW THAT WE HAD ARE HIM.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS THESE GUYS TO FEEL AND WHY HE WANTS PEOPLE TO RALLY AROUND THEM. >> MAYBE THAT WILL WORK IN REVERSE. THE UNITED STATES LOST BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU, DOESN'T HAVE BROOKS .
