Presidents Cup 2022 schedule, dates, format, teams, rules, matings, expert picks, odds

Finally, the 2022 Presidents Cup has arrived after three long years of anticipation. The US favorite is desperately looking forward to holding on to the trophy after their dramatic 16-14 victory at Royal Melbourne in 2019, while a rising international team is set to shock the golf world.

In the time since the last event, the United States has retooled its arsenal and introduced such young stars as Scottie Scheffler, Sam Burns, Colin Morikawa, Cameron Young and Max Homa. They will play in unison with familiar faces like Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Tony Fino as the 12 Americans find themselves inside the OWGR Top 25.

While the Americans added firepower, the international team lost some of its power. Instead of losses, Sungjae Im, Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Scott will lead their team to the Quail Hollow Club and hope to build on nearly winning the first International Presidents Cup since 1998 and only the second ever.

Featuring eight rookies, the international team is a major underdog in Charlotte. While this year’s Presidents Cup isn’t unusual, it brings a new feel as it finally felt as if their American counterparts were poised to topple the 11-time champion. With outside forces at hand, a one-sided relationship is more likely to occur.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know for next week at the Quail Hollow Club.

Presidents Cup 2022 schedule

All times are oriental

Thursday: Quartet – 1-6 pm
Friday: FORBOL – 11:30 AM – 6 PM
Saturday: Quartet and Quad – 7 AM – 6 PM
Sunday: Singles – 12-6pm

Furbol: Teams of two people play against each other as each competitor plays his or her own golf ball. Each side will take the lowest two notches for that particular hole. For example: If Jordan Spieth makes a birdie while teammate Justin Thomas makes a bogey, and Sungjae Im and Hideki Matsuyama are on par, the US team wins the hole.

Quartet: The most difficult of coordination of the two teams. Team members will play one golf ball and alternate shots until the hole is completed. Players stop shots at the tee regardless of who took the final kick in the previous hole. The best iron players usually line up to kick off the majority of the 3s while the toughest drivers start the 5s. The scoring remains the same and is the standard playing style.

Singles: One-to-one matches over 18 holes. What to watch in the US Amateur Championship or WGC Match Play.

2022 Presidents Cup

The Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, has been a staple of the PGA Tour, hosting the Wells Fargo Championship on an annual basis. Tom Fazio redesigned him in 2016 in preparation for the PGA Championship, he measures 7,576 yards and plays to par 71. Known for his ultimate stretch of holes number 16-18, the “green mile” has been raised on the scorecard and will play as number 13-15 to ensure competitors see it in Match play format.

History of the Presidents Cup

By defeating Royal Melbourne in 2019, the United States set a record 11-1-1 Presidents Cup. Despite the lopsided win total, there have been several close calls in recent memory, including a 16-14 affair in 2019 and a 15.5-14.5 match in South Korea in 2015. The international struggled hard on US soil, and neither that. He has two points since his second President’s Cup in 1996.

2022 Presidents Cup odds, favorites

Prop bets are plentiful in the Presidents Cup, and Caesar’s Sportsbook offered a handful to indulge in. Here are three of my favourites.

1. Top scorer – Sungjae Im (18-1): He is the best player on the international team, and will have to play in all five sessions if there is an opportunity. I love his fit of Quail Hollow, and I can see him paired with Tom Kim in what would make up a formidable South Korean duo.

2. Winner of Day 1 – Draw (25/4): If international players approach in any session, it must be the first session. Without expectations, the visiting team will be able to move freely around Quail Hollow and send out their strongest squad. In a period over 6-1, it’s okay to suggest that transmissions continue on Thursday.

3. Day Two Winner – USA (4/9): The price of 2/15 on the US to win the Presidents Cup is exorbitant, so target them instead with your favorite team format. The United States has made its straw in four balls over the years, and this time should not be any different given the sheer superiority in skill and continuity.

pairing to watch

Check out the pairs for the first day of the Quartet.

Not Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth: Although they may be best friends, they also break each other’s skills. Their partnership was one of the few points in the US’s 2021 Ryder Cup victory, and it may be time to separate the two more experienced members of this team.

Hideki Matsuyama vs. Justin Thomas in singles: The two are out at the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow, and I’d love to see them run it again. It can easily turn into a batting gallery for you to remember.

Cameron Young and Colin Morikawa: Dustin Johnson went 5-0 in the 2021 Ryder Cup thanks to his partnership with Morikawa. Young, being far enough from his tee and perfect for the greens, could fill in the void Johnson apparently left. This could be the beginning of a very long and successful marriage for the two of 25 years.

2022 Presidents Cup Predictor

It’s hard to imagine the US not winning this Presidents Cup, but I think it won’t be as easy as many expect. After stumbling outside the gates on Thursday, the Americans figured things out over the weekend and won by 17.5-12.5.
