Korea to Host the 2015 President’s Cup

 

The 2015 President’s Cup will be played at Incheon, South Korea’s the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club, near the International Business District. This year’s President’s Cup, which is the first to be played in Asia, are captained by Jay Haas for the American team and Nick Price for the International team.

The first-ever President’s Cup was held in 1994 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia, with the Hale Irwin-led American team defeating David Graham’s International team by the score of 20 to 12. Two years later, the event was again played at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, and again the Americans defeated the Internationals 16.5 to 15.5. That year, the American team was led by Arnold Palmer, while Peter Thomson led the Internationals.

In 1998, the Presidents Cup moved to Australia’s Royal Melbourne Golf Club, and Thomson’s International team relied on home-field advantage to defeat Jack Nicklaus’ American team 20.5 to 11.5

The Americans dominated the 2000 President’s Cup when it returned to Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, dismantling the Internationals 21.5 to 10.5 to avenge their 1998 defeat. Thomson led the International team for the third time that year, while the Americans were captained by Ken Venturi.

In 2003, the President’s Cup moved to South Africa’s Fancourt Country Club, where the two teams battled to a 17-17 tie. Tiger Woods and Ernie Else were tied after three sudden death playoff holes, at which point International captain Gary Player and US captain Nicklaus agreed to end the event in a tie.

Player and Nicklaus resumed their Presidents Cup rivalry two years later in 2005 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, where Americans fed off the home crowds to defeat the Internationals 18.5 to 15.5. Nicklaus again led the Americans to victory in 2007 at the Royal Montreal Golf Club, defeating the Internationals 19.5 to 14.5 to give the Americans their 5th President’s Cup in seven tries, as well as their first victory on foreign soil. David Toms made headlines with his stellar play, which Woody Austin earned the nickname ‘Aquaman’ after falling into a water hazard while attempting a rescue shot on the 14th hole. Despite the team’s loss, Canadian Mike Weir electrified the galleries by defeating world number one Tiger Woods one-up during Sunday singles. That year turned out to be Player’s last time captaining the Internationals, as well.

The 2009 President’s Cup was held at the historic Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco, with Fred Couples leading the Americans and Greg Norman leading the Internationals. It was the first time that the captains were also former President’s Cup players, with Couples playing for the Americans four times (1994, 1996, 1998, 2005) and Norman three times (1996, 1998, 2000). The Americans defeated the Internationals 19.5 to 14.5.

 

The ninth President’s Cup in 2011 returned to Royal Melbourne Golf in Australia, making it the first time a course outside the United States hosted the event for a second time. Couples again captained the American team, and Jim Furyk’s perfect 5-0-0 record propelled the Americans to their seventh Cup win. Tiger Woods clinched the Cup on the final day with a 4-and-3 victory over Australia’s Aaron Baddeley, giving the Americans a 19 to 15 win.

The 2013 Cup was held in Dublin, Ohio’s Muirfield Village Golf Club, which became the first course in the world to host a Ryder Cup, a President’s Cup, and a Solheim Cup. Five-time International team member Nick Price captained the International side, but was unable to overcome Couples’ Americans as the latter won 18.5 to 15.5.

Woods became the first player in the competition’s history to win the clinching match three times in a row, and Couples improved his record as captain to 3-0-0.
