Presidents Cup History

 
The Presidents Cup is a golf event that features two teams from the United States and International countries going head-to-head over a four-day period. The format is very similar to the Ryder Cup with each team having 12 golfers and they are selected to the team either on rankings or by the team's captain.

The event uses a match play scoring system, with five sessions taking place over the course of four days. The golfers from each team will compete against one another in 9 foursome matches, 9 fourball matches and 12 single matches. Each match is worth one point and if a match ends up tied then both teams are awarded a half-point.

The first team to earn 14 ½ points will win the Presidents Cup. If both teams are tied after all the matches are played, then the team that won the previous year will be considered the winner and will keep the Presidents Cup.

Since the event started in 1994, the United States has captured nine victories while the International Team has won once and there has been one draw.

The Presidents Cup takes place in odd numbered years and the event alternates between venues in the United States and countries represented by the International Team. The 2017 event will take place at Liberty National Golf Club from Jersey City, New Jersey.
