Unlike the highly-regarded Ryder Cup in the golf world, the Presidents cup doesn’t have any prize money. Golfers in the competition are not compensated as well. Instead, the nominated charity of the winning player will be awarded based on the profits raised by the tournament.
The Golf President’s Cup has a total of 24 top golfers, with 12 each for the team. There are over 30 individual matches.
How to Bet
The first Presidents Cup was played in 1994 in Virginia. Robert Trent Jones of the United States team won the tournament. The US team also has an incredible record against the international team since the inception of the Gold Presidents Cup. The US team has a total of 11 wins from a total of 13 matches to date. The international team won in 1998 only, with the match in 2003 ended with a draw.
