DUBLIN, Ohio — The Presidents Cup is a lot like The Players Championship. No one really talks about it until it’s time to play. And too much time is spent comparing it with something it will never be instead of enjoying it for what it is.

At least no one can joke the Presidents Cup is match play between the United States and Florida.
