"The Internationals need to step up and win the thing and make it a real competition," Scott told Agence France-Presse. "This is a big year for us. It's our time ... I think it's crucial. We have to win this year. The Cup loses any credibility whatsoever if (the Internationals) don't start winning soon."
"There are a few occasions we did really well, but the US team is a lot stronger," said International captain Nick Price of Zimbabwe, who lobbied PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem for changes that would neutralize the U.S. team's depth. "The commissioner didn't want to do anything about the changes for this year. We're going to do the best we can with the given points structure ... It's going to be a tough job for us to win the Cup."For more news that golfers everywhere are talking about, follow @si_golf on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our YouTube video channel.
