CHARLOTTE, NC – Eager to continue the team’s training and preparation ahead of the Presidents Cup, international captain Trevor Immelman organized a series of matches and games for the boys during a two-day scouting trip last month at Quail Hollow.
Apparently, there was one player who dominated the competition by strokes and foursomes.
“KH Lee won all the trophies that were on the line,” said Adam Scott.
Lee, a two-time Tour winner, came on the heels of consecutive top-20 finishes in the FedExCup Playoffs and was a career-best 41St. in the world ranking.

“Won two [trophies]sure,” Scott said, “and you might as well have won the cash.”
Lee was not available to confirm the details of his loot; he is scheduled to speak to the media on Wednesday afternoon.
But the larger purpose of the trip endures.
“It was really just to be prepared for this week,” Scott said. “As much as the guys bonded and it was fun to have a couple of dinners together and laugh at some of the shots and some of the stories from the past, it was nice to treat this tournament like the great event that it is. and go out and see the course.
“Now to be able to come back here and go, Well, it’s the same course that some of these guys trashed a few weeks ago. Nothing has changed, really. I think this is all part of Trevor’s master plan to get these guys ready to play their best this week. That’s all he wants to do.”
