Jason Day seeking redemption at Presidents Cup

Following President Trump's statement that players should be fired for protesting, branding dissenters "sons of bitches", debating the subject has filled news stations worldwide.

Two years ago in Korea, Day carried huge expectations to lift the Internationals to victory after his five-win season on the US PGA Tour. He's the president of the United States.

The Americans were euphoric, the worldwide team of players from around the globe outside of Europe gutted.

Aside from the Thomas-Fowler combo, the United States is highlighted by Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, the supergroup that's been effective for the U.S.in past team events.

The International team doesn't go home after a loss to several months' worth of second-guessing.

"We've had that discussion already", he said during a joint news conference with worldwide team captain Nick Price, "and none of my players want to do that". "Even though we are a hodgepodge of a team from all around the word, we are all competitors and we like to compete and we don't like to get beaten".

"But I think President Trump is right".

USA team rookie Kisner is expecting a sledging match with Day.

The U.S. team is obviously comprised of Americans. Captain Nick Price was counting on him to lead the way, to be a point-grabbing machine.

Five-time major victor Phil Mickelson, the only player to compete in every Presidents Cup, lends a veteran presence, and said the Americans need to keep the pressure on.

Five foursomes matches will be played on Thursday and five four-balls on Friday, with four of each on Saturday and 12 singles on Sunday.

'Last time we won was 1998.

"Korea was tough", he said.

"I'm very optimistic (with) how I'm progressing; "I'm still training".

And I'm just so appreciative of the many opportunities this country has given me.

Jason Day believes the International Team can use their status as massive underdogs to their advantage as they look to improve a miserable record in the Presidents Cup.

"I just wanted to know what they wanted to do and how we wanted to proceed as a team", he said. It's probably a little easier [for them] to find a bond.

"I don't see it being a big issue next week with either team", added the 28-year-old. It's a special time to, in a way, pay respect and remember what a great country we get to live in.

The swell of sporting protest last weekend ordinarily would not resonate much in golf, commonly an individual sport, but this time it's different for a tournament normally afforded little status or interest. I didn't play good.
