That dynamic is inherently totally different, significantly for the sports activities world’s most insular group {of professional} athletes.

    “To be completely trustworthy, we don’t get to root for one another,” Justin Thomas admitted throughout his press convention on Tuesday. “No offense to the opposite 11 guys on my crew, however I’m not essentially pulling for them to shoot 64 each time they play.

    What Thomas means is that on the Presidents Cup, the incentives are flipped. It’s nice to shoot 64, however it’s much better if everybody shoots 64. And the way can Justin Thomas assist the remainder of the American crew shoot 64? Partly, by leasing out his mind.

    Thomas isn’t alone on this endeavor. Everybody is inspired to share just a little bit throughout Presidents Cup week. Throughout these weeks, it’s how one of the best gamers on this planet get just a little bit higher.

    “I believe the good factor when you have got these crew occasions is guys are prepared to share possibly a secret right here and there,” mentioned Collin Morikawa. “Except you’re greatest associates with them and type of performed with them each single day, you simply get to listen to just a little bit extra about how everybody does it. It’s at all times good to listen to. It’s refreshing.”

    There’s a wealth of expertise break up between the American and Worldwide sides, and as such, a wealth of secrets and techniques price stealing.

    “I really like asking all of the captains how they’ve completed it up to now,” Morikawa mentioned with amusing. “Stricker has been instructing us learn how to chip, I believe, for the final two and a half days.”

    In the case of the unfold of data on the Presidents Cup, the wealthy solely get richer.

    However not all secrets and techniques are created equal. In fact, Morikawa says, the knowledge dump doesn’t at all times produce radical change.

    “It doesn’t imply it’s the proper method, proper? But it surely’s simply one other perspective that we will have a look at,” Morikawa mentioned. “I believe that’s the most important factor is that we simply type of convey all this data in to only assist us. It’s been actually cool of per week to listen to that.”

    Some secrets and techniques aren’t secret in any respect. Like, for instance, the function crew golf performs in making ready golf’s greatest gamers for stress conditions. That’s why so many gamers soar on the likelihood to compete in a Presidents Cup, although only some of them are prepared to say as a lot about loud.

    “Each match feels such as you’re happening the again 9 at a significant championship,” Jordan Spieth admitted. “It’s like each gap with the roars and also you’re going two or three up, and also you’re like, I bought this. It’s a really related feeling to the nerves and the way anxious you’re to get began and the nerves on the golf course to competing in a significant.”

    On the Presidents Cup, the benefits carry far past the sector of play. Generally, they carry proper up into the next yr. That’s what actually units this week aside. It’s bizarre, sure, however it’s positive price it.

    “I imply, the 2014 Ryder Cup did wonders for me in 2015,” Spieth mentioned. “I guess when you ask Scottie [Scheffler] he’ll say final yr’s Ryder Cup did wonders for him this yr. You see that pattern quite a lot of instances with guys who come out and play rather well and win necessary matches and go on to make use of that as gasoline. I actually did. There’s quite a lot of benefits.”

    Because it seems, there’s at the very least one secret to taking part in higher golf. You simply need to wind up on a Presidents Cup crew to listen to it.
