Presidents Cup Could Have Some Tired International Players

The Presidents Cup starts this week and I wonder how fresh some of the International Team are going to be including Ernie Els who will be playing in the final day of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Monday. I guess it's a good thing he has his very own jet.

Since leaving Atlanta after the final FedEx Cup event his jet is taking him across the Atlantic twice in the span of eight days with golf tournaments three weeks in a row in time zones covering eight hours. How can this guy not be tired especially now that the tournament is going an extra day.

Adam Scott and Robert Allenby were playing in this weeks PGA Tour stop in upstate NY (Atunyote Golf Club at Turning Stone Resort). Scott made the cut Allenby didn't. All the US Team took the week off form tournament play. I wonder what the outcome will be come next Sunday and will a few of the International be fatigued and/or exhausted. Ernie Els says that's why he has a jet but we'll see what happens. I wonder what Els medical travel insurance looks like and can you image if he could collect air miles. Lets just hope he gets some rest.
