Davis Love III’s focus turns to the Presidents Cup
The 57-year-old Charlotte native and World Golf Hall of Famer also has been an assistant on three Presidents Cup and two Ryder Cup teams, including the one that trounced the Europeans last weekend at Whistling Straits.
Love calls the most recent U.S. Team, which included eight of the top 10 players in the world and likely will form the nucleus of his team at Quail Hollow – and many more American squads to come, “really, really confident.” The average age of the Americans was 29.1, with Dustin Johnson, at 37, the old man of the team.
“These guys just think they’re going to win every time they go play,” Love said. “You’ve probably been around Patrick Cantlay a little bit; he’s a very confident young man. And so is Dustin. And so is (Collin) Morikawa. He’s very quiet, but he’s a quiet 50-year-old. He’s just so steady and so good.”
Love credited the experience gained in junior golf, as well as exceptional coaching and training, with the poise and determination he saw on offer last week. He said he was surprised by how many people the players had on their personal support teams.
“Even though it was the pandemic, I saw more coaches at a Ryder Cup than I’ve ever seen,” Love noted. “We didn’t have that in 1993. Nobody had a coach with him. Nobody had a trainer with them. Nobody even knew what a bodywork person was. We had eight or nine people at the hotel or at the club taking care of guys. So, it’s a different generation.”
To Stricker’s credit, Love said, he noticed that shift and made accommodations for it. Formal dinners and rah-rah speeches were kept to a minimum – “Maybe it makes them nervous,” Love reasoned — so the players could keep to a more normal schedule. Forget the epic ping-pong battles of yore. These guys wanted to rest so they could be at their best the next day.
“I mean, literally one night there was only X-Man (Xander Schauffle) and Brooks (Koepka) still up,” Love noted. “One night it was Brooks who was the only one up, working out.
“And Dustin, Sunday morning, now he’s down there at 6:30 and he’s bopping around and he goes, ‘Hey, I was in bed at nine o’clock.’ People wouldn’t believe that — if you would see Dustin Johnson, the celebrity, you would think, oh, it’s party, party, party, party, party. He does … on Sunday.”
In a word, Love was impressed by the discipline he saw on the team. He remembers Cantlay coming to him and telling him he’d finished practicing and working out, but he needed to get his bodywork – a form of therapy that helps realign and reposition the body – done. That meant he’d be 45 minutes late for dinner.
“That’s how disciplined they are,” Love said.
Cantlay also needed three or four hours to warm up and prepare for a match. That meant 7:05 a.m. tee times were a non-starter.
“It’s just different, and Steve just had it dialed in,” Love said. “Freddie and I are just sitting back, holy cow, we’re old. They do it differently than we did.
“So, we have to adapt to give them what they need to get ready. ”
Often, team meetings, if you will, were held in a room upstairs at the Whistling Straits clubhouse while they waited for the traffic to thin. Stricker would tell the players who was practicing together and what format to play. Grab dinner in the team room and you could go to bed.
“I remember (Tom) Watson coming in late one night when we were playing Pass the Pigs and Jenga and all the games that somebody brought in ‘93 and he goes, ‘You guys have to go to bed. You have to play golf tomorrow,’” Love laughed. “This is the opposite with these guys like, where is everybody? We had this big, gorgeous team room and I’d walk in and go, where is everybody?
“And we knew they weren’t anywhere else because you couldn’t go anywhere else. They weren’t allowed to go. … One night, they had a family thing of people that were in the bubble. And they got to go to the little restaurant, right beside the parking garage, The Horse & Plow and say hi to their parents. And that was it, the only thing they were allowed to do.
“It was a weird Ryder Cup for the veterans like us. Where’s the pomp and circumstance? But it was also weird that they were always ready to go — and they played unbelievable.”
Love said he knew after the U.S. won the first session, 3-1, that the Americans would retake the Ryder Cup. It wasn’t at all like three years ago in Paris when the U.S. took the opening Four-balls by a similar margin but didn’t win a Foursomes match in the afternoon.
“We had issues,” Love said of Paris. “We were jumbling pairings in afternoon. We didn’t know what we were going to do for Saturday. You know, Phil and Tiger weren’t playing good, and Patrick was not playing great. We didn’t know what was going on.
“This team — all you had to do is shoot them to their tee times and they were going to roll.”
Love said there will be debriefings in the coming months, as has been the case with every U.S. Team event since the task force was formed, to zero in on what worked and what didn’t. He plans to work on strengthening his relationships with some of the younger Americans – there were six rookies, for example, on this year’s team.
“I got to know Patrick Cantlay so well, and I got to know X-Man a lot better,” Love said. “Morikawa, I don’t know. It’s a hard egg to crack in one week. He’s still a young, shy kid, even though he’s a major champion. So, I’ve got some work to do on getting to know guys, but Brooks and the Dustin and those guys — they’re tired of me.”
Presidents Cup to return to Canada in 2024 | Golf News and Tour Information
The PGA Tour announced Monday that the 2024 Presidents Cup has been awarded to Canada.
The biennial match pitting the United States versus an International squad will return to Royal Montreal Golf Club, which hosted the event in 2007. Although the Americans won, the ‘07 match is best remembered for Canadian Mike Weir defeating Tiger Woods during Sunday singles.
“I was very proud to be part of the Presidents Cup as a player in 2007, and to see it come back after being so well-supported the first time just speaks to how passionate we are in Canada about golf,” Weir said. “The fan turnout was tremendous, and as a Canadian I am very proud to have the Presidents Cup come back.”
Royal Montreal Golf Club will become the second international venue to host the Presidents Cup more than once, joining Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.
“The people of Canada are some of the most loyal and passionate sports fans in the world, and given the overwhelming success of the Presidents Cup in 2007, it was a natural next step for the event to return to the Royal Montreal in 2024,” said PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan in a statement. “The Presidents Cup continues to grow and expand along with the global growth of our sport while leaving an indelible legacy of giving back throughout the world. I have no doubt that with the support of our fans, the corporate community and governments of Quebec and Canada and the City of Montreal, the Presidents Cup 2024 will continue to the positive trajectory of this event.”
Three Canadians—Weir, Graham DeLaet and Adam Hadwin—have competed for the Internationals in the Presidents Cup, with Hadwin playing in 2017 and 2019 and Weir serving as an assistant captain in both those events.
Because the 2020 Ryder Cup was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Presidents Cup has moved to an even-year cadence. The 2022 Presidents Cup will visit Quail Hollow in Charlotte, beginning Sept. 19. Tournament dates for the 2024 Presidents Cup will be announced at a later date.
2019 Presidents Cup results, scores: Tiger Woods leads U.S. to first comeback win in event history
A Ryder Cup broke out at this year’s Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne in Australia where the United States won their eighth consecutive edition of this event, 16-14. That’s the highest praise I can give to a team competition that hasn’t exactly been rife with thrills and chills in its history.
This year, though, we got it all. All the drama (on and off the course) to go along with elite golf, an unbelievably close competition and a handful of iconic Presidents Cup moments, including the Americans becoming the first team in event history to come from behind and win on the final day of competition.
I guess I could say I saw this coming since my prediction coming into the week was the U.S. winning 16-14, but I didn’t see this coming. Not Patrick Reed’s caddie getting tossed from the event or Tiger Woods going 3-0-0 as a playing captain or Matt Kuchar (!) sinking the winning putt.
There’s a lot to unpack from the week, but for now, let’s walk back through how the U.S. notched eight points in the 12 singles matches to make up a two-point deficit on the final day.
We start where we always start: Tiger Woods.
Captain Big Cat led himself off against Abraham Ancer, who a month ago said he wanted to play Tiger in a singles match. He may have regretted that decision when Tiger went 1UP on the second hole, never trailed and then (literally) walked him off with a putt on the 16th to win 3&2.
Woods said he knew the match was over when the putt was 6 feet out. This is what you get when you ask to play Tiger Woods in singles.
That was just one of the 7.5 points the U.S. team needed for the victory, though. Soon after Woods’ win, the antagonist of the week, Patrick Reed, put away C.T. Pan 4&2. Reed blazed out to a 6UP lead through seven holes but nearly gave it all back coming home (which would have been unreal). Instead, he moved to 4-1 in Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup singles matches. All of this after his caddie (and brother-in-law) Kessler Karain was barred from caddying for him on Sunday following an altercation with a fan at Royal Melbourne. So there was drama there, but there was also drama elsewhere.
The Americans started racking up point after point, jumping way out in front, but the Internationals tied it up late. At 11.5-11.5 with one match tied and three each leaning in the teams’ respective directions, it looked as if a tie was a real possibility.
When Webb Simpson defeated Ben An 2&1 on the 17th hole to get the U.S. to 15-12, the Americans knew they couldn’t lose. But with the three remaining matches still in the balance, they also knew they had to still go earn the win.
Matt Kuchar, of all people (!), ended the fight with a stiff approach on No. 17 and sank a birdie to go 1UP over Louis Oosthuizen. They went to the 18th, which Oosthuizen won, but it didn’t matter because the U.S. got the half point it needed and added another half point later on when Rickie Fowler tied Marc Leishman.
Joy flowed from the U.S. camp.
“We did it together,” said captain Tiger Woods, who went undefeated as a player this week and set a career Presidents Cup win record with 27. “We came here as a team. My teammates and my boys all played well. The captains did an amazing job of just being there for every little detail. I couldn’t have done it without all their help.
“All my boys. They did it.”
Woods, it seems, has figured out at a much older age because of his very strange life that all the achievement in the world means little if you don’t have a good community to share it with. These are his people.
“I trust all my 11 guys,” he said. “I trust them implicitly. I told them that from the very get-go. They went out there and got the points we needed. We fought. Even the points we lost, we were making them earn every one of them. This cup wasn’t going to be given to us. We had to earn it. And we did.”
They did. After trailing after each of the first three days when they hadn’t trailed after a single day in 14 years, they showed real fight on Sunday in the singles to go out and close. The Americans went 11-5 over the final two sessions, including 8-4 on Sunday.
“What a thrill,” said Kuchar after his clincher. “To play for the greatest ever, arguably, and to have him as a playing captain, just so cool. Watching him go out and still be just the best player on the golf course.
“All of us, we just did not want to let him down. We were so excited to make the team. No way did we want to let Tiger Woods down. To be able to come back the way we did was such a thrill.”
This Presidents Cup will go down as probably the best of all time so it’s fitting that the best player of all time is at its epicenter. Tiger the player was brilliant. Tiger the captain was moving and effective.
It’s 2019. Tiger will be 44 in a few weeks, and he still stands right in the center of everything that matters in golf. This week was a tremendous reminder of that and the perfect springboard into 2020.

Two major international golf competitions, the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup, have announced that they are postponing their event dates by a year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Organizers say they rescheduled the Ryder Cup because it was not clear fans would be able to attend safely this year.
The Ryder Cup, a biennial competition that pits top U.S. golfers against some of the best from Europe, was initially left unchanged as golf’s four major tournaments were canceled or postponed.
However, organizers announced on Wednesday that the Ryder Cup will be held in September 2021 instead of the initially scheduled 2020 date. It is the first such rescheduling of the event since Sept. 11. Before that, it hadn’t been rescheduled or canceled since World War II.
The event will still be held at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Sheboygan County, Wis.
“It became clear that as of today, our medical experts and the public authorities in Wisconsin could not give us certainty that conducting an event responsibly with thousands of spectators in September would be possible,” PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh said in the statement. “Given that uncertainty, we knew rescheduling was the right call.”
That shift led to the rescheduling of the Presidents Cup, a tournament that features a U. S. team competing against a non-European international team.
The Presidents Cup has traditionally taken place in between years when the Ryder Cup occurs. It was initially slated for the fall 2021 in Charlotte, N.C., but will be pushed to 2022.
As of now, three of the four major tournaments — the U.S. Open, the Masters, and the PGA Championship — have been rescheduled for later this year. The 2020 British Open was canceled.
Organizers said that people who bought tickets for the 2020 Ryder Cup will be able to obtain tickets for the new date or will be eligible for a refund.
Presidents Cup: Davis Love III takes over from Tiger Woods as Team USA captain for 2022 | Golf News
Two-time Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III succeeds Tiger Woods as Team USA captain for the 2022 Presidents Cup in North Carolina; 56-year-old has played in six Presidents Cups and been part of the backroom staff three times
By Ali Stafford
Last Updated: 26/01/21 2:16pm
Davis Love III will captain Team USA at the 2022 Presidents Cup
Davis Love III has been named as the American captain for the 2022 Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow.
The two-time Ryder Cup captain succeeds Tiger Woods, who won all three of his matches as a playing captain to help Team USA claim a narrow 16-14 victory in Melbourne in 2019.
Love competed in the first six editions of the Presidents Cup – where he never lost a singles match – and represented Team USA as a player in six consecutive Ryder Cups between 1993 and 2004.
Davis Love III offers a wealth of experience representing Team USA, both as a player and as a non-player
The 56-year-old has twice been part of the backroom team in a Presidents Cup victory, assisting Fred Couples in 2013, Jay Haas in 2015 and Steve Stricker in 2017, as well as serving as a vice-captain for the 2010 and 2018 Ryder Cups.
Love was captain for the 2012 ‘Miracle at Medinah’ Ryder Cup and the most recent American victory at Hazeltine in 2016, with the 21-time PGA Tour winner also scheduled to be one of Stricker’s assistants for this year’s contest at Whistling Straits.
Davis Love III captained Team USA to a 17-11 victory at Hazeltine in the 2016 Ryder Cup
“It’s a tremendous honour to be named captain of the US Team for the 2022 Presidents Cup,” Love said. “My history with this event dating back to 1994 conjures up indelible memories of competition, camaraderie and sportsmanship, and I’m thrilled to be leading the top American players into Quail Hollow Club next September.
“The U.S Team has been guided by some of the game’s all-time greats since 1994, and I will do my best to carry on that legacy as we look to retain the Cup.”
The Presidents Cup had been due to be held in September 2021 but has been pushed back a year because of the Ryder Cup’s coronavirus-enforced postponement, with the contest now reverting to being held on even-numbered years.
Team USA have won the last eight editions of the Presidents Cup and have only been beaten once in 13 editions of the biennial contest. Former Masters champion Trevor Immelman will captain the International Team in North Carolina.
Presidents Cup Future Venues (Through to 2026) – Voyages.golf
The prestigious golf tournament The Presidents Cup has announced its future host venues through to 2026. Recently it announced the 2024 edition at Royal Montreal Golf Club in Quebec, Canada.
In 2026, the Presidents Cup will return to the United States’ state of Illinois, with Medinah Country Club being the host venue. Medinah is the fifth different venue in the United States to host the Presidents Cup, though it is no stranger to big tournaments, having previously hosted the 2019 BWM Championship, 2012 Ryder Cup, two PGA Championships, three U.S. Opens, the 1988 U.S. Senior Open, three Western Opens (BMW Championship), and a spate of other golf tournaments.
The biennial event was most recently played at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia’s southerly state of Victoria in 2019, which drew huge crowds for the four-day event and marked the third time the Presidents Cup was brought to its southern-most venue.
Presidents Cup Format
The Presidents Cup format follows the Ryder Cup golf tournament in that it is played biennially, and consists of two teams of 12 players per side. Each team has a captain who chooses the pairs in the doubles events. Play consists of both alternate shot and best-ball formats, known as ‘foursome’ and ‘fourball’ respectively. Each match is worth one point with a half-point awarded to each team in the event of a halved match. The final day consists of 12 singles matches.

Originally, play was over three days, although it was extended in 2000 to four days, played from Thursday to Sunday. The event is held in the second half of the year, although dates have changed historically between the months. The 2019 Presidents Cup was played in December, while the 2022 Presidents Cup will be played in September due to the delay caused by Covid-19. The Presidents Cup Venues are hosted by golf clubs across North America and the rest of the world minus Europe, with notable venues including South Africa, South Korea and Australia.
The Presidents Cup has undergone many changes since its inauguration in 1994, although its biggest difference to the Ryder Cup is that the team versing USA is made up of the best players from the world minus Europe, while the Ryder Cup is Team Europe vs Team USA. There is no prize money awarded at the Presidents Cup; proceeds are distributed to charities nominated by participants.

Two more African leaders – Tanzanian President John Pombe Joseph Magufuli and Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza – have died of disease.The media reported that both leaders were infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus. Magufuli, who died in March of this year, refused to introduce lockdown in Tanzania and spoke out against wearing medical masks. He also asked Tanzanians to pray for the victory over the coronavirus. In April 2020, Tanzania stopped publishing official statistics of cases, and Magufuli claimed that his country was free of infection and invited tourists to the republic.

Vladislav Tretyak – RBC: “The fate of Gretzky’s record is in the hands of Ovechkin”
“I was not going to be elected,” said Tretyak.“Once I was summoned to the Kremlin to see Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. The President asked what was happening in our favorite sport, why there has not been a single gold medal since 1993. I expressed my opinion. The conversation lasted an hour and a half. As a result, the head of state said: “I need victories, I need to unite the Russians. This is a big deal. I offer you to become the president of the FHR and I promise to provide serious support, ”the functionary revealed in his conversations with the president of the country.

Anatoly Tymoshchuk: It’s nice when presidents cheer for you!
Among those who congratulated Anatoly Tymoshchuk after Zenit’s UEFA Cup triumph were the presidents of the two countries.
Among those who congratulated Anatoly Tymoshchuk after Zenit’s triumph in the UEFA Cup were the presidents of the two countries.However, even the historic victory in Manchester did not inspire the captain of St. Petersburg to violate the “dry law” he had adopted for himself. The midfielder of the blue-white-blue and yellow-blue (that is, the Ukrainian national team) told about the night after the final, the reception in the Kremlin and his desire to take the won trophy home in an exclusive interview with “Championship.ru”.
– How is your rest, Anatoly?
– Well, it can only be called a vacation with a stretch (laughs). For four days I escaped with my wife Nadezhda to Dubai.A little dispelled – and back to work. Already on Thursday, it should be like a bayonet in Kiev, in the location of the Ukrainian national team, which will have two friendly matches (on May 24, the charges of Oleksiy Mikhailichenko will meet in Rotterdam with the Dutch team, and on June 1 they will play in Stockholm with the Swedes. – Approx. “Championship.ru” ). Then I will go to Japan for a while – I will take part in the send-off from the big football of Hidetoshi Nakata. And there it is already time to start preparing for the Russian championship as part of the club. So there is no time to chill too much. – Did you manage to get enough sleep?
– Yes, but only here in the Emirates. And before that, you know, there was no time for sleep. After the match with the Rangers, he returned to the hotel at about two o’clock in the morning – he was delayed on doping control. At five in the morning I went to bed for a little pokemon, and at nine we left for the airport. Then – the flight, meeting with fans, appearances on television … In general, I got to bed by eleven in the evening, and early in the morning – I got up again: flew to Moscow to meet with the President of Russia. – Everyone knows your sharply negative attitude towards strong drinks. Is it possible that even on the occasion of such a tremendous success, the “dry law” was observed?
– What’s so surprising? My principles have been and remain unchanged: I do not drink alcohol. Generally. And even for such, of course, unforgettable moments in life, I do not make an exception. I don’t need a drink to lift my spirits.
– And your teammates did not hide that they slightly violated the regime in the locker room of the City of Manchester.
– At that time I was called for a doping test, and I, in fact, missed the moment of washing the trophy.I know that instead of the traditional champagne in such cases, beer was poured into the goblet. The guys celebrated the victory with them.
– Dick Advocaat admitted after the match that a number of team players might leave St. Petersburg in the near future. Was he hinting at you?
– I don’t know what the coach meant and who exactly. Probably, it is better to ask him directly for explanations … As for me personally, I have always said without concealment that I dream of someday trying my hand at one of the leading European championships.And if “Zenith” will contribute to the realization of this dream, I will only be glad and grateful to the club.
– Contact you today with a specific proposal, people from Juventus – what is your answer?
– While the transfer window is closed, there is no point in discussing this topic. Pointless conversation. Let’s first wait for its opening, and then we’ll see. Now any negotiations, and even more so transitions are impossible in principle.
– Back to the Manchester final. From the outside it seemed that the pause in the competitive schedule had a beneficial effect on the St. Petersburg team.“Zenith” looked fresher, faster, sharper than the opponent. Do you agree?
– The effectiveness of the preparatory process characterizes the result more eloquently than any words. If it is, it means that the right way to achieve it has been chosen. And as soon as we won, it turns out that the pause was good for Zenit.
– Have you counted how many congratulatory text messages your phone received that night from Wednesday to Thursday?
– Oh, there were a myriad of them (laughs)! There were a lot of unanswered calls and congratulatory messages.I suppose that many people still simply could not get through to me. Congratulations were also received from the President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko – he received it by diplomatic mail and immediately after the match was handed to me by the Ukrainian Consul in Great Britain. Frankly, it was very nice …
It was very pleasant to hear from the mouth of the head of state that he is a Zenit fan, that he was worried about the team and was sincerely happy about our success.
– The flag of Ukraine that you tied around your neck after the game, isn’t it the same one that an unknown fan gave you after Zenit won Russian gold?
– No Another.It was brought to Manchester by my parents. After the final whistle, I ran to the podium where they were sitting, we congratulated each other, and dad handed me a flag. I know that many Ukrainians around the world were rooting for Zenit, so they had the right to share our victory, to feel their involvement in it. I would like Ukraine to see the trophy with its own eyes. I hope they will allow me to take the cup home later.
– What do you have left in memory of the finale?
– First of all, unforgettable impressions and extremely positive emotions! Souvenirs include a memorable captain’s armband, which UEFA has prepared specially for the final match, and a jersey. – Last Friday “Zenith” in full force attended a reception with the President of Russia. What are your impressions of the meeting with Dmitry Medvedev?
– First, the official part of the ceremony took place, at which the president congratulated the entire team and personally greeted each player. And after that we talked in an informal setting. We talked on various topics, mainly, of course, football. And finally, they all took a picture together with the UEFA Cup. In general, the impressions are the most positive! Previously, after all, we did not have to communicate with Dmitry Anatolyevich.And therefore it was very pleasant to hear from the mouth of the head of state that he is a fan of Zenit, that he was worried about the team and was sincerely happy about our success.
