This weekend will see the playing of the 12th Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey.
The President’s Cup is a golf tournament held on alternating years where the United States team plays against a team of International Players (excluding Europe, Europe and the U.S. compete in the Ryder cup on the other years).
The President’s Cup is not set up as a normal golf tournament rather it is set up in a team setting called match play.
The 3 Match Plays are:
Foursomes: where teammates alternate taking shots until the ball is holed.
Four Ball: where each player plays the ball and the lowest score for the team is recorded.
Singles: where players compete head to head against the opposing team. The golfer with the lowest round of the two wins.
The winner(s) of each match receives a point for their team. A draw gives each team ½ point.
The first team to 15.5 points is the winner.
The last Presidents Cup saw the Americans win 15.5-14.5. The Internationals have only won once since the inception of the Cup and there has been one draw.
