Stop us if this sounds fa­mil­iar – an un­der­dog In­ter­na­tional side heads into an­other Pres­i­dents

Cup (Sep 27-Oct 2) look­ing to break the Amer­i­can hold on the event, now run­ning to six straight vic­to­ries. Ja­son Day (right) and com­pany at least closed the gap the last time out in Korea, los­ing by a sin­gle point. But the chal­lenge still ap­pears daunt­ing, es­pe­cially against a US side not only loaded with prime stars such as Jor­dan Spi­eth, Dustin John­son and Rickie Fowler, but also the likes of newly minted ma­jor win­ner Justin Thomas, who has joined the ranks. It could be a starspan­gled week at the Lib­erty Na­tional, just off Manha›an. What’s the bet the golf-lov­ing, Big Ap­ple-bred oc­cu­pant of the Oval Of­fice – who is in­deed the honorary chair­man of the tour­na­ment, so he has a good rea­son – will show up?
