@Watch@ The Presidents Cup 2017 provides a unique opportunity to see some of the world’s finest golfers go head-to-head in a team tournament, with the best from the United States taking on an International selection over the course of four days.
The format sees a team consisting of players from outside of the States and Europe taking on the best America has to offer. Liberty National Golf Club in New Jersey is the venue for this year’s event, with the United States seeking to win the prize for the seventh time in succession.
Indeed, since the competition’s inaugural edition in 1994, the International team have only won the title once, in 1998. If International skipper Nick Price can get one over on the USA’s Steve Stricker, it’ll be a historic effort.
