Davis Love III on the Presidents Cup: I don't think we have to do too much motivation

Davis Love III seems ready for the new Presidents Cup that will be held at the end of this month. Many believe that his team will finish things without many problems, considering the quality of the players available, but also the absence of several International team players.

Many have become part of LIV Golf, thereby losing the right to be part of the International team. “Well, you call Dr. Bob Rotella a lot in the next couple weeks, and you make sure you've got a game plan for the messaging,” Love said a few days ago, as quoted by golfdigest.

“These guys, this is their 12-man team that has never played together before. So, they want to win for this team. [But] I don't think we have to do too much messaging or motivation. Certainly, you don't want to be on a losing team ever.

We know we are up against it. Trevor [Immelman, the International team captain] is going to have a team that's got a chip on their shoulder and that's motivated and wants to prove that they can still be competitive. We have to be careful.

Certainly, these guys are not going to take it lying down”.

Davis Love III: Our next 12 is really good

The Americans will be absolute favorites and their team seems really too strong. Love III is an optimist because he is aware of the kind of players he has at his disposal.

“I always say our first 12 is good and our next 12 is really good, and that's what makes my picks so difficult is because just start right on the list of automatic qualifiers,” said Love. “You go right past … obviously it's disappointing that Will got hurt.

Our first 12 was incredibly strong. We almost could have just gone right off the top-12 list. But when you start at 13 and work your way down, every one of those guys is a great player and had a great year and has a case for playing”.
