Question of the Day
As Jason Dufner readied to hit his opening drive in singles, wife Amanda walked into the gallery ringing the tee. The Fanatics, dressed in yellow and green to back the International side, immediately broke out in the chorus of, “Is She Really Going Out With Him?”
Dufner paused in a practice swing and glanced over at opponent Brendon de Jonge, who cracked up.
When several of the red-white-and-blue clad American Outlaws fans began chanting, “U-S-A! U-S-A!” the Fanatics countered by reciting, “ABCDEFG …”
The U.S. contingent of fans also scored some points, however.
When 46-year-old Steve Stricker, who had partnered with the 20-year-old Spieth in the first three rounds, came to the tee, the Outlaws sang, “He’s big, he’s bad, he could be Jordan Spieth’s dad, Steve Strick-er, Steve Strick-er.”
Stricker tried to keep a straight face but failed.
After Bill Haas walked to the tee, one enterprising but off-key singer offered, “Well, he’s a Bill, Haaas” a riff on “Brick House” by the Commodores.
Not long after that, U.S. captain Fred Couples walked over to the partisan fan contingent in the stands and flipped a U.S. warmup jacket at the singer.
Finally, all week fans had provoked a reaction from players by shouting, “Raise your hand if you’ve won a major!” They did it to get a smiling Adam Scott to raise his hand almost every day.
Standing near the first tee and welcoming each of the players was 18-time major winner, Muirfield Village designer and unofficial Presidents Cup host Jack Nicklaus.
The fans broke up when someone shouted, “Raise your hand if you’ve won 18 majors!”
Nicklaus laughed as he lifted his left arm above his head.
When the competition was completed, several International team members donned honorary Fanatics shirts on the 18th green.
STRANGE PAIRING: Perhaps the oddest singles pairing was Tiger Woods, tops in the world rankings, going up against No. 41 Richard Sterne.
