Sunday in the Park


SAN FRANCISCO – The scene on a frigid first tee early Sunday at Harding Park was light and airy, a telling departure from first tees at The K Club or Valhalla and both teams appeared loose as the matches enter the stretch run.

It was interesting on Saturday night that the International squad was climbing onto the team bus at about 8:30 p.m. PT, more than an hour after the U.S. team had slipped off property.

No word on whether it was a pep talk or ping-pong match that delayed the International’s departure, but the United States team did get the “Gipper” speech from Michael Jordan early Sunday.
