2019 Presidents Cup Format

The set up for this tournament is similar to the Ryder Cup, but the event takes place over four days instead of three, and the first set of four-ball and foursome matches take place on different days.

The opening day will feature five four-ball matches. Day 2 will consist of five foursomes.

The final two days line up exactly with the Ryder Cup. There are four four-ball matches in the morning and four foursomes in the afternoon. Then Saturday night, we’ll see the 12 singles matches.

The Course

Royal Melbourne is the site of Team International’s only victory, back in 1998. It’s a shorter course, measuring just over 7,000 yards for a par 71. It’s a pretty easy course for accurate hitters who can keep the ball in play and then try to attack with their approach game.

When thinking of the players who could do well here, Jim Furyk is the prototype. Furyk went 5-0 here in 2011 to help Team USA earn the win.

With tricky rough, several bunkers and plenty of trees, accuracy will be very important this week.
