BEST v THE REST
THE obvious upside of the Presidents Cup returning to Melbourne is we get to see the best golfers in the world.
The downside is most of those golfers will be playing for the US team, and not the hapless Internationals.
The Internationals, or InterSpuds as they should be known given they’ve won just one of 12 competitions, can boast just (13) and
(19) currently ranked in the world top 20.
Given 12 players are required for each team under the Presidents Cup format, the US can select from the following: (1);
(3); (4); (9); (5); (10); (11); (15); (17); and (14); (16);
(18). Or the winners of 24 majors and 138 US PGA tour events in total.
As for the InterSpuds, they’ve bagged three majors and 39 US PGA tour wins.
By way of further comparison, the European Ryder Cup team has six players currently ranked in the world top 20. ON the subject of sporting radio movement in 2019, 1985 Brownlow medallist is said to have impressed with his football chat at Macquarie Sports.

There were initial concerns that a lack of AFL funding could see the valuable commodity pull up stumps from providing a weekly AFL service to all indigenous and community-licensed radio stations across the nation.
