Internationals get inspiration?

MELBOURNE, Australia – The International Team has taken the advantage early during the opening Foursomes at the Presidents Cup.

Greg Norman’s squad leads in four of the six matches while the U.S. has the edge in two. Maybe the International Team drew inspiration from some surprise guests on Wednesday evening.

Here’s what assistant captain Frank Nobilo tweeted earlier today. “3 welcomed visitors to our team room last night. Tim Finchem and our first two captains in David Graham and Peter Thompson. # presidentscup

Graham captained the first International Team while Thomson (yes, that’s spelled correctly) was at the helm for three Presidents Cups, including the 1998 victory at Royal Melbourne. That 20 1/2-11 1/2 International win remains the team’s only one in eight previous matches.
