USA favourites for Presidents Cup

11:24 am on 3 October 2013

The United States will begin the Presidents Cup tomorrow morning as strong favourites with six of the world's top 10 golfers facing the International team.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are in the 12-strong US line-up, while world number two Adam Scott and 16th-ranked Jason Day lead the Internationals.

The US will be going for a fifth win in a row at Muirfield Village, Ohio.

Woods says because every player has to play every day, I believes their depth helps.

The tournament consists of a combination of four-ball and foursome matches played over the first three days, concluding in 12 singles matches on the final day.

Masters champion Adam Scott has played in the event five times but has yet to be on a winning Internationals team
