The PGA Tour announced Monday that the 2024 Presidents Cup has been awarded to Canada.
The biennial match pitting the United States versus an International squad will return to Royal Montreal Golf Club, which hosted the event in 2007. Although the Americans won, the ‘07 match is best remembered for Canadian Mike Weir defeating Tiger Woods during Sunday singles.
“I was very proud to be part of the Presidents Cup as a player in 2007, and to see it come back after being so well-supported the first time just speaks to how passionate we are in Canada about golf,” Weir said. “The fan turnout was tremendous, and as a Canadian I am very proud to have the Presidents Cup come back.”
Royal Montreal Golf Club will become the second international venue to host the Presidents Cup more than once, joining Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.
“The people of Canada are some of the most loyal and passionate sports fans in the world, and given the overwhelming success of the Presidents Cup in 2007, it was a natural next step for the event to return to the Royal Montreal in 2024,” said PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan in a statement. “The Presidents Cup continues to grow and expand along with the global growth of our sport while leaving an indelible legacy of giving back throughout the world. I have no doubt that with the support of our fans, the corporate community and governments of Quebec and Canada and the City of Montreal, the Presidents Cup 2024 will continue to the positive trajectory of this event.”
Three Canadians—Weir, Graham DeLaet and Adam Hadwin—have competed for the Internationals in the Presidents Cup, with Hadwin playing in 2017 and 2019 and Weir serving as an assistant captain in both those events.
Because the 2020 Ryder Cup was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Presidents Cup has moved to an even-year cadence. The 2022 Presidents Cup will visit Quail Hollow in Charlotte, beginning Sept. 19. Tournament dates for the 2024 Presidents Cup will be announced at a later date.
