Truth & Rumors: Adam Scott says Prez Cup needs to change format to thrive
Aussie Adam Scott said changing the format of the Presidents Cup is necessary for it to ever rival the popularity and prestige of the Ryder Cup, according to report by Channel News Asia.
"Someone needs to take a lesson from the Ryder Cup," Scott told reporters ahead of Thursday's Australian Masters at Melbourne's Kingston Heath course.
"We've got the chance to do it [change format] next year at Muirfield Village in Ohio and we should."
The U.S. team has an impressive Presidents Cup record, winning all but two since the biannual event was created in 1994. Scott, a five-time International team member of the Presidents Cup, was a member of the 2003 team that tied the U.S. in South Africa.
"Most of the five I have played in have been done and dusted by Sunday apart from the first one in South Africa which was a tie," he said.
"We've got to get the competition back in the event. The last three have been walkovers to the US, to be quite honest. We need to change the format so it's not all done by Sunday."
