The Presidents Cup is a chance for redemption.
The U.S. golfers remember only too well what happened last year at the Ryder Cup. The Americans built a huge lead heading into the final day of the competition at Medinah and barely needed to show up to record a victory over their European candidates. Instead, the American team collapsed and the Europeans walked away with the title again.
The Presidents Cup does not carry the same kind of prestige as the Ryder Cup, but it is international team competition. Golfers like Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Keegan Bradley have a chance to win, and they don't want to let the competition against the International team slip through their grasp.
This time the venue is Muirfield Village in Ohio. The American golfers have a 7-1-1 record in the Presidents Cup and want to remain dominant.
Here are the top storylines going into the competition.
