Presidents Cup, Day 3: So you’re telling me there’s still a chance… (*Updated)
By Stephanie Wei under Presidents Cup

One thing we can always count on in golf: Awkward celebrations (with the exception of Beef).

The Internationals finally won their second full point in afternoon four-ball matches to keep the Americans from clinching the Cup…by a point. At the end of Day 3 at the Presidents Cup, the Americans lead the Internationals 14.5 to 3.5. Ouch.

 

In the meantime, Alan Shipnuck’s column on how to revive the Presidents Cup is a fantastic and hilarious read. I highly recommend.

The last ferry back to NYC leaves at 7pm, so I gotta run, but I’ll be back! 

*Updated: I lied, obviously, but I didn’t have anything to add that you didn’t know already happened.

I can’t even explain the situation exactly, but while waiting in line for the ferry, a lovely lady chatted me up and next thing I knew Leland Hardy started speaking to me in Mandarin. Which I wasn’t expecting and it was kinda trippy — not gonna lie. So, then his Chinese friend eventually chimed in, commenting that Mr. Hardy spoke better Mandarin than I did (which was indeed the case). I had no idea who they were, but by the end of the ferry ride, we all had each other’s contact info.

The universe works in mysterious ways. I’ll leave it at that.
