Presidents Cup Format

The Presidents Cup consists of 30 matches in matchplay format across the four days. The winner of reach match is awarded 1 point, matches finishing all square (tie) result in 0.5 points awarded to both teams. A team needs to reach at least 15.5 points over the four days to win the Presidents Cup.

What is the Schedule for the Presidents Cup ?

  • Thursday (Day 1): 5 x Fourball Matches
  • Friday (Day 2): 5 x Foursomes Matches
  • Saturday (Day 3, Morning): 4 x Fourball Matches
  • Saturday (Day 3, Afternoon): 4 x Foursomes Matches
  • Sunday (Day 4) 12 x Singles Matches

What are Presidents Cup Foursomes ?

Foursomes are also referred to as 'Alernate Shot', there are two players per team and only one ball per team is used with players taking alternate shots. The lowest number of shots played wins the hole and 1 point. If the shots score by both teams is tied then the hole is 'halved' and 0.5 points awarded to both teams. The team/pair with the highest number of points over the 18 holes wins the match and 1 point for their team's Presidents Cup points total. If the match is all square (tied) after 18 holes then the match is 'halved' and 0.5 points awarded to both teams.

If a pair/team amass an uncatchable target during the round, for example a team are leading by four points (9.5-5.5) with three holes remaining to play then the match is halted and the point awarded to the leading team without the need to play the remaining holes. The result in this example will be shown as (4&3) meaning a 4 hole advantage with 3 holes remaining, any margin of victory still results in 1 point awarded for the winning team.

What are Presidents Cup Fourballs ?

There are two selected players per team and they play their own ball for the entire round/match so four ball's in total are in play, this is where 'fourballs' differs to 'foursomes'. The lowest number of shots taken wins the hole. Again, if the lowest score for each team is tied then the hole is 'halved' and 0.5 points awarded to both teams. Similarly to the foursomes, if an uncatchable lead is obtained before 18 holes have been played then the match is halted with the winner declared and 1 point awarded without the need to complete the round. If the match is all square (tied) after 18 holes then the match is 'halved' and 0.5 points awarded to both teams.

What are Presidents Cup Singles matches ?

The 12 Presidents Cup singles matches are also match play format, the lowest score wins the hole and 1 point is awarded and a tie means the hole is 'halved' and 0.5 points awarded to both players. When a player has set an uncatchable lead with holes still remaining the match is complete with 1 point awarded to the winning team, if the match is all square at the end of 18 holes then the match is 'halved' with 0.5 points awarded to each team.

What are the Presidents Cup Tee Times ?

The tee times and match line ups are determined by the captain's picks and usually announced the day before each session is scheduled to start, or in the case of the Saturday with morning and afternoon sessions the latter fixtures may be announced during that morning.
