Top Golfers to Watch
Before entering this year's event, Tiger had a career 20-14-1 record in seven previous Presidents Cup appearances. Despite not winning a major, he still won five tournaments this season along with eight top-10 finishes on the tour.
It seems like he is officially relaxed on the course once again. He had some fun with Matt Kuchar on Thursday on the first hole, pulling off the popular high-five from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Things got off on the right foot at The Masters, where he was able to win his first career major championship after beating Angel Cabrera in a sudden-death playoff. He then tied for third at The Open Championship and followed up by tying for fifth in the PGA Championship.
His emergence could be credited in part to Greg Norman, who selected Scott with the captain's pick back at the 2009 Presidents Cup. There's been a resurgence in Scott's confidence since then, which has made him an ideal leader on the course for the rest of the international team.
The international team hasn't had a lot of success against the Americans, but with talent like Scott, it has a shot to make this even closer than it has been in previous seasons.
The 20-year-old has enjoyed plenty of success in his rookie season. He earned his first career win at the John Deere Classic after holing out from a green-side bunker on the last hole to force a playoffs.
The rest of the season has been almost as impressive. He only had one win, but he had nine top-10 finishes on the year along with finishing eighth in the FedEx Cup playoffs.
We all saw how good he is on Thursday, after he hit a hole-in-one on the 12th hole. He did take a one-stroke penalty and had to take a drop on the 18th hole, but he had a solid outing overall on the first day of the event.
Spieth has shown off a well-rounded game in his rookie season. What has made him so remarkable, however, has been his finishing ability. He finished with three straight birdies and then an eagle to end the Deutsche Bank Championship, shooting a 62 on the final round.
This is a great test for him, as he is looking to add to an already exceptional resume at such a young age. As a captain's pick, we should be seeing a lot of nice shots from this rising star.
