The Presidents Cup

The Presidents Cup was established in 1994, as a means for players outside of the continent of Europe to get in on the action that had become so popular from the Ryder Cup. What The Presidents Cup does, is bring in all of the countries that are not in the running for the Ryder Cup, and puts them together on an International squad, where players earn points throughout the tournaments they play in.

There are 10 players who automatically qualify for each team, with the Captain getting two at-large selections of his choosing. The 2013 Presidents Cup captains are Fred Couples for the United States, and Nick Price for the International team.

Players will have through the PGA Championship to earn points towards qualifying for The Presidents Cup, so just about all of the 2013 season for players give them plenty of time to earn a spot on the team.

What Happened In 2011?

The 2011 Presidents Cup was contested down in Australia from Royal Melbourne Country Club. This was the 9th Presidents Cup held. Winning by a score of 19-15, the team from the United States was able to claim victory and bring the cup back to the U.S. Jim Furyk was the hero for team USA that week, going 5-0 in his matches to finish undefeated for the week. It was the best performance by any player on either team.

    The percentages of picking a winner this week versus a normal PGA Tour week is a bit better, with just two options. With that being said though, despite the record of the U.S. and International teams in past Presidents Cups we still think this will be a battle.

PGABettingOdds.com predicts that the U.S. team will win their 8th Presidents Cup on Sunday evening from Muirfield, but don't be surprised if there is some late drama.
