Ryo Ishikawa was arriving late in Australia for the Presidents Cup, but International captain Greg Norman doesn't expect the Japanese star to have any problems by the time the tournament begins Thursday. Norman said after the captains' media conference Tuesday that Ishikawa, coming off a ninth-place tie Sunday in the Japan Tour's Taiheiyo Masters, wouldn't arrive until later in the day due to weather problems and flight delays. Norman added ''there's absolutely no problem with Ryo himself.'' The 20-year-old Ishikawa won his first Japan Tour title when he was 15 and shot 58 last year.
