The United States will put its 17-year win streak in the Presidents Cup — and 22-year unbeaten streak — on the line in Quail Hollow, N.C., this week.
The international tournament — excluding European golfers — will return stateside in 2022 after the U.S. eked out a 16-14 victory in Melbourne in 2019. The normally biennial event was pushed back a year from its 2021 date due to the cancellation of the Ryder Cup in 2020.
All the more reason for both the United States and international teams to give it their all this week in a team-based competition that comprises fourball, foursome and singles matches. (For a refresher on how those styles of play differentiate from stroke play, here’s an explainer for the 2021 Ryder Cup).
The Presidents Cup might not have the tradition as the Ryder Cup (played between the United States and Europe), but there’s still plenty of history in this competition, which dates back to 1994. To date, the international team has only won once, in 1998.
