Presidents Cup pairings: Thursday foursomes kick off festivities at Quail Hollow
The 14th Presidents Cup gets started Thursday afternoon at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.
While the U.S. team is the heavy favorite, the Internationals will look to get off to a strong start like they did three years ago in Australia, where they jumped on the Americans, 4-1, in fourballs before ultimately losing an eighth straight Presidents Cup by two points.
First up are five foursomes matches. It’s a format that the Americans have outscored their opponents, 71.5-31.5, in the past 10 editions.
The rest of the week looks like this: Friday – five fourball matches; Saturday – four foursomes matches in morning, four fourball matches in afternoon; Sunday – 12 singles matches.
Here are the pairings, matchups and tee times for Thursday’s opening foursomes session:
1:05 p.m. ET: Cantlay/Schauffele vs. Scott/Matsuyama
1:17 p.m.: Spieth/Thomas vs. Im/Conners
1:29 p.m.: Young/Morikawa vs. Tom Kim/Lee
1:41 p.m.: Scheffler/Burns vs. Si Woo Kim/Davis
1:53 p.m.: Finau/Homa vs. Pendrith/Pereira
