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