Excitement builds in the tennis world as the 14th edition of the Presidents Cup is on the horizon. Here is all you need to know about the Presidents Cup 2022 event.
Presidents Cup is an event on the PGA Tour that consists of a series of matches between Team United States and Team World (excluding Europe). Established in 1994, the 14th edition of the event is about to start this Thursday, the 22nd of September at the Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina.
The Presidents Cup is a similar event to the Ryder Cup with a format that includes fourball, foursome, and singles match. Although it does not hold the same prestige as the USA vs Europe event, it is quite an esteemed tournament on its own. The very best golfers from the US and the rest of the world minus Europe represent their respective teams.
This year, the 24-player field (12 on each team) is headed by 19 of the top 50 players in the ranking, including world no. 1 Scottie Scheffler, Tony Finau, Patrick Cantlay, Hideki Matsuyama, Sungjae Im, etc.
Historically, the United States has dominated the competition with 11 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in the previous 13 editions. It has been over two decades since the rest of the world team won the event in 1998. In all the pre-tournament analysis, USA is a clear favorite to win in 2022 as well. However, with a solid roster led by Trevor Immelman this year, the International team is determined to win this year.
