Presidents Cup Thursday foursomes pairings feature 10 rookies, powerhouse opening match


CHARLOTTE, NC – After all the speculation and predictions, it’s officially time to start the 2022 Presidents Cup.

US captain Davis Love III and international captain Trevor Immelman made their picks for Thursday’s four-legged games at the Quail Hollow Club, which will set the course for what should be an exciting week. If you’re not familiar with the format, the four-way is just an alternate shot, where opponents on the same team play the same ball and the lowest average wins the hole.

Both teams this year feature a fair share of rookies – five for the US and eight for the foreigners – and 10 will be in action on Thursday afternoon.

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