The United States will host an international team in the Presidents Cup starting Thursday, but LIV Golf is still in the headlines.
A host of stars will miss the competition as it is part of the PGA Tour with players who have signed for LIV not allowed to participate.
USA captain Davis Love III told the Charlotte Observer: “The Presidents Cup is just a PGA Tour tournament where these guys (who joined LIV Golf) are trying to never play again.
“So it’s both heartbreaking, disappointing and at times infuriating that we have to deal with this…. It’s just very sad for the game.”
But who is on each team and how can fans watch? Here’s everything you need to know.
When is it?
The tournament will take place September 22-25 at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.
How can I watch?
The entire tournament will be shown on Sky Sports Golf or it can be streamed on their Sky Go app.

For Team USA, Will Zalatoris was supposed to play but has a back injury so can’t play. Stars like Bryson DeChambeau won’t play as they compete for LIV Golf.
The international team, on the other hand, doesn’t have the injury problem, but they have some great players ineligible due to LIV Golf – namely Cameron Smith.
