THE UNITED STATES HAS WON EIGHT of 10 Presidents Cups. For the sake of the event, do the Americans need to tank this week in Korea? Do the Internationals need to get in the win column for a change? It would be their first victory since 1998.

Golf.com's Cameron Morfit suggested as much in his column.

"When the Presidents Cup began in 1994," Morfit wrote, "the idea was that the event would grow in stature every couple of years until it began to rival, at least a little, the Ryder Cup. Instead, the opposite has happened, with the Presidents Cup getting less and less relevant with every passing red, white and blue blowout."

Whether the Presidents Cup or the Ryder Cup, one-sidedness is definitely not a good thing. After a while, people think or say, "Who...

JORDAN SPIETH WON IT ALL in the 2014-2015 season, including $22,030,465. That's $22 million for a 22-year-old. Nice symmetry. On Friday, to no one's surprise, Spieth was named PGA Tour Player of the Year.

From PGATour.com:
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- The PGA TOUR announced Friday Jordan Spieth as the PGA TOUR Player of the Year and Jack Nicklaus Award recipient, and Daniel Berger as PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year, as voted by the TOUR's membership for the 2014-15 season.
PGA TOUR members who played in at least 15 official money events this past season were eligible to vote. The balloting process ended on October 1.
The 22-year-old Spieth became the youngest PGA TOUR Player of the Year since Tiger Woods won the award at the age of 21 in 1997.
"The PGA TOUR enjoyed a sensational season from every perspective as our young stars shone brighter than ever before, but...​

JOHNNY GOODMAN WAS THE LAST AMATEUR to win the U.S. Open. Goodman won at Olympic Fields in 1933, edging Ralph Guldahl by a stroke. He had already made a name for himself. At the age of 19 Goodman beat Bobby Jones in the first round of the 1929 U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach. Goodman later won the U.S. Amateur in 1937 and is credited with at least 60 tournament victories, according to Wikipedia.

The son of Lithuanian immigrants and orphaned when he was 14, Goodman grew up poor in Omaha, Nebraska, where today there is a golf course named after him.

Michael Blaine wrote a fine biography of Goodman published...

As Golfweek reported, name players are dropping in the Official World Golf Ranking. Obviously, Tiger Woods is the most famous and dramatic example, but there are plenty of others.

"How tough is it to maintain a high world ranking?" wrote Golfweek. "Well, more than 25 percent of those who began the year in the top 50 are now on the other side."

Following are some examples.

Tiger Woods was 32nd and is now 299th.

Graeme McDowell was 15th and is now 71st.

Victor Dubuisson was 17th and is now 57th.

Keegan Bradley was 28th and is now 53rd.

Joost Luiten was 29th and is now 66th.

Ryan Moore was 30th and is now 51st.

ESPN.COM'S MICHAEL COLLINS, A FORMER CADDIE, filed another edition of "Caddie Confidential." Only this week, it's not confidential. Michael Greller openly talks about what it's like to be Jordan Spieth's caddie, especially during this milestone season.

"Three years ago I'm literally in my sixth-grade class teaching ya know?" Greller told Collins. "And here I am talking to you guys about my boss that's won two majors, a FedEx and everything else."

This player and caddie...

THIS MINI-DOCUMENTARY ABOUT JASON DAY is nicely done, well worth 10 minutes if you want to learn about Day's background and unlikely climb to the No. 1 ranking in golf.

From Day's sponsor RBC:
Jason Day’s journey to the top of the golf world is unlike anyone else's. From humble beginnings in Australia, Jason overcame adversity to find his path through hard work and dedication. Through exclusive, behind-the-scenes access Jason's story is shared with the world for the first time here. We're proud to call Jason a member of Team RBC.​

"THIS IS INCREDIBLE," SAID JORDAN SPIETH after wrapping up his fifth PGA Tour victory of the year at the season-ending Tour Championship.

In fact, you could say Spieth put a wrap on everything, also winning the FedEx Cup worth $10 million, returning to No. 1 in the world (displacing Jason Day, who was on top for one week), putting an exclamation point on Player of the Year (although it's not official), winning the Vardon Trophy and finishing the season with record-breaking earnings.

I could think of other adjectives, but I suppose Spieth's "incredible" will do. As NBC golf anlayst Johnny Miller said more than once, "You just got to keep reminding yourself this guy is 22 years old."

Spieth is hyper-motivated. After winning the year's first two majors, contending in the other two and winning a pair of other tour events, the young Texan could have coasted through the dregs of the PGA Tour season.

AT THE TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP IN ATLANTA, Rory McIlroy was asked about the pot of gold at the end of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. A cool $10 millon. Rory said:
No, money's never motivated me. It's never been a motivating factor in my life. My dad and mom together probably earned I don't know, 40, 50 grand a year. Combined. That was sort of our household income.
