The 10th Presidents Cup gets underway Thursday as the top American golfers look to continue their dominance over their international counterparts at Muirfield Village.

Like the Ryder Cup, however, anything can happen in the pressure-packed environment of a Presidents Cup, and no one honestly knows what to expect at Muirfield this week.
In fact, there are a bevy of significant questions hovering over the event as the two teams make their final preparations at Jack Nicklaus’ storied and challenging layout.

Those are just some of the unknowns that absolutely beg answers as the latest edition of this growing rivalry prepares to launch later this week.
