2017 Presidents Cup Preview
The Presidents Cup is a biennial tournament that sees the top golfers in the United States taking on the world’s highest rated players outside of Europe. Initiated in 1994, the event has no prize pool as its primary goal is to raise monies for charity and showcase the best of the best the sport has to offer. This year’s Cup will be the 12th edition, and will feature a combination of fourball, group play and singles matches.
The United States team have won the last six editions of this elite tournament, and nine of the eleven overall. Steve Stricker takes over as captain from Jay Haas in 2015. He will be assisted by Fred Couples, Davis Love lll, Tiger Woods and Jim Fuhryk. The lead player for the United States will be Dustin Johnson, the current number one in the world after after a break out 2017 which has seen him at number one for most of the year. He will be a major factor as to whether or not the US will retain the Presidents Cup.
The International team will be captained by Nick Price, with assistance from Ernie Els, Tony Johnstone, Geoff Ogilvy and Mike Weir. The International side will be led by Japanese golfer Hideki Matsuyama, another who had a break out 2017, highlighted by his runner up finish in the 2017 US Open which saw him reach number two in the PGA rankings. Australians playing in the side are Jason Day, Adam Scott, as well as Marc Leishman, and their matches will be pivotal to the International‘s success.
