Presidents Cup Thursdays foursomes with 10 rookies, veteran powerhouses

Presidents Cup Thursdays foursomes with 10 rookies, veteran powerhouses

CHARLOTTE, NC — After all the speculation and predictions, it’s official time to kick off the 2022 Presidents Cup.

United States captain Davis Love III and international captain Trevor Immelman made their selections for Thursday’s foursomes matches at Quail Hollow Club, which will set the tone for what should be an exciting week. If you’re not familiar with the format, foursomes are simply alternate shots, where competitors on the same team play the same ball and the lowest score wins the hole.

This year, both teams have a good number of rookies, five for the US and eight for the internationals, and 10 will be in action on Thursday afternoon.

Here’s what you need to know for the first round of play in the 2022 Presidents Cup.

Thursday pairing quartets

1:05 p.m. ET: Adam Scott-Hideki Matsuyama (international) vs. Patrick Cantlay-Xander Schauffele (U.S)

1:17 p.m. ET: Sungjae Im-Corey Conners (international) vs. Jordan Spieth-Justin Thomas (U.S)

On the bench

Sebastian Munoz and Christiaan Bezuidenhout are on the pine pony for the internationals and will have to wait until at least Friday to make their Presidents Cup debut. On the US side, Billy Horschel and Kevin Kisner will sit out the Thursday foursomes.

The only player of the four with Presidents Cup experience, Kisner went 1-0-1 in 2017 in foursomes alongside Phil Mickelson.
