The United States has completely dominated the Presidents Cup.  The 2011 win at Royal Melbourne was their seventh; against only one loss and one draw.  The main reason for their success is the competition they face.

The International Team does not have the talent to match the USA.  That does not explain everything as the Ryder Cup results have shown.
