Team competition: US golfers again win Presidents Cup against world selection

The best golfers from the USA have won the Presidents Cup for the twelfth time. The defending champions from the United States beat the world selection (excluding Europe) 17.5:12.5 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

It is the ninth win in a row for the US professionals. Olympic champion Xander Schauffele got the decisive point in the twelve final individual races.

However, the world selection at Quail Hollow Club was missing some prominent players. With top golfers such as Australia's world number three Cameron Smith, Chile's Joaquin Niemann, Mexico's Abraham Ancer and South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen joining the controversial LIV tour, they have not been considered for the Presidents Cup. For the same reason, the US team decided against using former world number one Dustin Johnson.

Like the Ryder Cup, the Presidents Cup is held every two years. The USA won twelve of the 14 comparisons. The only victory of the world selection dates from the year 1998. In 2003 they drew. In the Presidents Cup, twelve US professionals play against a world selection. For the "internationals" there are no European players at the start. The Europeans only compete against the USA in the Ryder Cup.
