The Presidents Cup will kick off this week in North Carolina at the Quail Hollow Club, which is hosting the event for the first time. The 14th edition of the Presidents Cup golf competition will take place between September 22 and 25. It is a series of men’s golf matches where the US team competes with an international team, which includes players from all around the world except Europe.
Team USA will look forward to defending their title after a significant victory over the European Team in the Ryder Cup. Notably, they have never lost at home and have lost only once in the competition overall, back in 1988.
In the previous edition three years ago in Melbourne, Team USA performed exceptionally under the supervision of captain Tiger Woods to win the competition.
The hosts are once again the favorites this week as they go up against an international team, in which some players have been disqualified after joining LIV Golf.
For fans hoping to watch the competition at home, here’s everything you need to know about where to watch and the broadcast schedule.
