The United States is the most successful team in this unique golf event’s history (established in 1927), having won 26 of the 42 Ryder Cups played, 18 of which took place before 1979, when the championship was split between Great Britain & Ireland and the USA.
The event returns to the US following the U.S’s 16-14 victory in Melbourne in 2019.
The last Presidents Cup, held in 2018 in Melbourne, Australia, saw one of the closest contests in the entire events’ history. The US team would trail for the first four sessions of play, but a fantastic comeback in Sunday’s Singles matches would see them clutch out the win.
This match will go down in history for the iconic showdown in the final games between player captain Tiger Woods and Ernie Els’ International squad.
Normally this prestigious tournament is held every two years, but it has been pushed back a couple of times due to the recent pandemic.

How Competitors Qualify for the Presidents Cup
Each team comprises 12 golfers – but how are these selected? The top eight ranking golfers that play out of the United States automatically make the team, and then the team captain fills the roster with their four final picks. The rankings are taken for the USA team from the FedEx Cup points over two years, with the second years’ points counting as double.
To form the International team, the top eight ranked golfers outside of the USA and Europe are picked to play. These rankings are taken from the official world golf rankings for one year leading up to the tournament for international players.
