The 14th Presidents Cup kicks off this week in North Carolina, where Team USA will be attempting to earn their ninth straight win at the event.
Although the biennial event has been dominated by the United States since its inception in 1994, both teams’ rosters look significantly different this time around amid golf’s infighting surrounding the LIV Golf Invitational Series, as players from that controversial league backed by Saudi Arabia are not allowed to compete in the Presidents Cup.
Here’s everything you need to know to keep up with the Presidents Cup this week.

What happened last time?
The United States, led by game captain Tiger Woods, beat the International Team 16-14 in 2019 at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia.
Team International actually had a 10-8 lead going into the final day and had a real shot at handing Team USA their second loss in event history. The international team’s only other win also came in 1998 at Royal Melbourne.
However, it was Woods, who was 3-0-0 for the week, who led Team USA on a dominant Sunday. The Americans won six singles matches and drew four to escape Australia with a two-point win.
