David Toms at the 2011 President’s Cup

The Americans dominated the President’s Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia this past week/weekend to retain the cup. Fred Couple’s team was dominant. David Toms represented Louisiana golf very well by going 3-1 (3 wins and only one loss) in the four matches he played. In fact, he was so dominant that 3 of the 4 matches were won by the 14th hole. Toms’ record was matched by Phil Mickelson and only surpassed by Hunter Mahan at 4-1 and Jim Furyk at 5-0.  Both Toms and Mickelson voluntarily sat out Saturday’s four ball pairings. Therefore, Toms and Mickelson were tied for the Americans’ third best record of the twelve-member American team. Tiger Woods, who admittedly improved during the matches and got the media attention by winning the cup-winning point, had only a 2-3 record. Congratulations David!
