Recapping the 2019 Presidents Cup
The United States team trailed for most of the event, with the International team leading the score at the end of all three days.

At the end of the final day, the US team had successfully defended its Presidents Cup title with a final score of 16-14.
2021 Presidents Cup United States Team
Although it’s a bit too early to guess the American lineup, it will be interesting to watch which top players are going to miss out on the selection.
In 2019, then world number 1 Brooks Koepka did not participate in the tournament because of a knee injury.
Tiger Woods was named the team captain for 2019 but has yet to announce his decision for 2021. Woods led the American team as its top performer with a perfect 3-0-0 record.
Playing on home soil, the United States team is the clear favorite to win the Presidents Cup for the 12th time.
2021 Presidents Cup International Team
The International team came close to winning its second-ever Presidents Cup.
Four-time major champion Ernie Els announced that he will not return for a second stint as the captain. The South African star earned plenty of praise for his job but still decided against a return for 2021.
Abraham Ancer surprisingly led the team with a 3-1-1 record, his only loss coming on the final day against Woods. Rising star Im Sung-jae also had a 3-1-1 record.
The International team has yet to announce its new captain.
Once again, it will be an uphill battle for the visiting team, which holds an overall record of 1-11-1.
