DUBLIN, Ohio — Even though Jack Nicklaus has no official position at the Presidents Cup, he remains a presence.

The winner of a record 18 major championships is an unofficial host for this week’s biennial match-play competition between the United States and an International side.

On Tuesday he discussed his pride over the Nicklaus-designed Muirfield Village becoming the first course to play host to a Presidents Cup, Ryder Cup and a Solheim Cup, in addition to annually playing host to the annual Memorial Tournament.

He also addressed the Presidents Cup format, the art of pairing players in matches and the pressure on the International team to be competitive.

At 73, he said it was very special to be a part of the matches.
