There are 11 of the 12 players on the USA squad for the Presidents Cup in the field, including Woods, Fowler, DeChambeau, Woodland, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Webb Simpson, Matt Kuchar, Tony Finau and Patrick Reed.

"The only thing that I have control over at the Hero is the first-round pairings", Woods said.

Rahm smiled and answered when asked if his wedding preparations could distract him this week.

"I don't want to say Tiger doesn't have a good record but you look at his match-play record through the years and I think the other players, they really get up to play against Tiger, as well they should". The World No.3 won in his first appearance here previous year and returns this week fresh after claiming the Race to Dubai. It's a busy two weeks for those here. "Quite bluntly, we want the home-crowd advantage, and I'll be disappointed if they are cheering enthusiastically for Tiger or anyone on the USA team". "If you don't, it's between us".

"When do I relinquish the captaincy role and officially have someone be the captain?" he stated. "So it was important for the guys to continue playing, and they have". "Some of my favourite style of golf is that kind of links, fast, firm style of golf course, and so I feel like I can go down there and definitely hold my own". And some of the things that we've been able to acquiesce and mold things into, you know, different things and we've been able to do it, and other things we've been able to talk it through. There are a lot of moving parts, whether it's talking to the guys, talking to my vice-captains, organising what we need to have done down there, to be ready but also I need to keep sharp. What he brings to the table, the intensity, the passion, the competitiveness, the drive to do the best he possibly can, you're going to see that out of him, I'm sure, and it's going to be a lot of fun to be a part of.

"I'm really focused on the first couple of sessions".

"It's going to be very hard, but we have to believe we can beat him and I believe we can win next week". "Another one I played with in team format before is Dustin".

Woods, still the sport's biggest draw as he nears 44, is making his first start Down Under since the 2011 matches, as he'll act as a playing captain. "Jim Furyk and I had to go tee it up together, and nothing that we had prepared for, but that was the way everything fell because there was going to be an odd group out based on everyone having to play". "But I am trying to figure out how to play around the stiffness".

While Fowler is a late addition to the Presidents Cup team, he's enthusiastic about the chance to play. We've got four sessions before we get to the singles. And also a lot of top players are going to be playing there that particular week.
