International team captain Nick Price believes his "hodgepodge" band have the talent, and the fire, needed to prevent the U.S. from winning a seventh straight Presidents Cup this week.The United States have won nine of 11 prior editions of the event, with one tie and just one International victory, in 1998 in Melbourne.But Price said the one-point defeat two years ago in Incheon, South Korea, was "a shot in the arm" for players like Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen and Jason Day.In addition to veterans like Australia's Scott and Day and South Africa's Oosthuizen, the Internationals have four debutants in Argentina's Emiliano Grillo, Canadian Adam Hadwin, Venezuela's Jhonattan Vegas and South Korean Kim Si-Woo.While Price has four Presidents Cup rookies on his team, U.S. captain Steve Stricker has six.Five-time major winner Phil Mickelson, the only player to compete in every Presidents Cup, lends a veteran presence.
