Jack Nicklaus on national anthem protests: 'There is a time and place'

28 September 2017

Tiger Woods has called for a mouth-watering showdown between Jason Day and Jordan Spieth in the singles at the Presidents Cup in New Jersey. The Australian admitted he was exhausted at the time, but made no excuses.

Professional sportsmen in the United States have either been taking to their knee or linking arms in a show of solidarity against comments made by President Donald Trump.

Day arrived at the teams event as the hottest player in the world courtesy of four wins in seven starts, including the US PGA Championship, as well as a brief first stint as world No.1. Unfortunately I take the blame for that. I didn't play good.

"Just don't ask me to kneel with it, 'cause I won't do it", said Spencer Berry, 60.

Among those who called him out, the mayor of San Juan, who said, "You don't put debt above people, you put people above debt". He said he may also stop in the US Virgin Islands during the Tuesday trip.

And so after losing the Presidents Cup six times in a row and posting but a single victory in 1998, the worldwide team members are left with the idea that it's no fun to lose and - as it relates to this competition - they are sick of the Americans (9-1-1) celebrating.

Trump is an honourary chairman of the event, a role typically given to sitting or former presidents of the Presidents Cup's host country. It's fresh again this year, I'd say. "What do you guys want to do?' There wasn't a hesitation on what they wanted to do", he said.

Sky Sports will show this year's Presidents Cup on Sky Sports Golf, with coverage beginning on Thursday at 6pm. "We adhere to our rulebook and to our core values and traditions, I think that's why our sport is so successful", Love III said.

It's a topic the sport, and much of the media that covers it, would probably rather avoid but with a United States of America team event coming just days after Trump's comments, the questions were going to be asked.

"We have our flag, our freedom", he said.

"I don't see it being a big issue next week with either team", USA team member Rickie Fowler told ESPN.com on Sunday. "I remember all the boys standing over there on the edge of the green, " said the Victorian.

"We've played together before".

Woods said he had even doubted whether he could work as a captain's assistant at this week's Presidents Cup because riding in a golf buggy "hurt too much". "The bouncing hurt too much", said 41-year-old Woods, who fielded numerous questions about his rehab and his future at a press conference of the assistant captains for the match play showdown between the United States and an worldwide team. "We're starting to get that feeling that there's some history there".
