Presidents Cup, the Usa Team dominates all

There is no story in Charlotte (North Carolina) in the 14th edition of the Presidents Cup. The United States after the double "fourball" matches have extended their advantage over the International Team (excluding European players).

The stars and stripes team, led by Davis Love III, leads 8-2 over that of Trevor Immelman.

Presidents Cup, results

Relentless the duo composed of Justin Thomas / Jordan Spieth, able to stem (with the result of 2 & 1) the competition of Adam Scott / Cameron Davis.

Success also for Patrick Cantlay / Xander Schauffele (3 & 2 on Hideki Matsuyama and Tom Kim) and Billy Horschel / Max Homa (1 up on Corey Conners / Taylor Pendrith). While the match between Scottie Scheffler / Sam Burns and Sungjae Im / Sebastian Munoz ended in a draw, as well as the one between Kevin Kisner / Cameron Young and Mito Pereira / Christiaan Bezuidenhout.

Still no victory for Scheffler, world number 1. This, so far, is the only drawback for the US team that is chasing the ninth consecutive victory in the competition. The Presidents Cup is a golf trophy put into play every two years that the United States and the rest of the world (except Europe since it already plays the Ryder Cup) compete for in a team tournament.

This competition takes place every two years, alternating with the Ryder Cup. Initially taking place in even years, it has been held in odd years since 2003, the 2001 edition of the Ryder Cup having been postponed in 2002 due to the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Like the Ryder Cup, each team consists of a captain who does not play matches and twelve players. The format used has evolved since the first edition in 1994, however the framework remains substantially the same, with four doubles sessions played alternately in fourballs and foursomes, before ending with 12 singles.

The matches are played in Match-Play. There is no prize money awarded at the Presidents Cup. The net proceeds are distributed to charities nominated by the players, captains, and captains' assistants. The first ten Presidents Cups raised over US$32 million for charities around the world.
