Presidents Cup Head To Asia

The Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon, South Korea has been chosen to host the 2015 Presidents Cup. It will be the first time the event will be played in Asia.

The venue, 40 miles west of Seoul, opened in 2010 and has held both Senior and KLPGA events already.

"We are thrilled to take the Presidents Cup there, which is not only a milestone in the event's history, but also a significant step in further elevating the game of golf in Korea," said PGA Tour Commissioner, Tim Finchem.

"And also because we had the competitive experience of the Champions Tour, we knew that it was going to be an outstanding venue to stage the matches of the Presidents Cup.”

The President’s Cup is a Ryder Cup-style competition that began in 1994, pitting 12-man teams from the United States against a line-up of international players from outside Europe. America have won seven of the nine events staged so far.

The 2015 event will be held in October.
