WORLD CHAMPIONS CUP
Three Teams. One Championship.
The World Champions Cup is a first-of-its kind international professional team championship where three teams comprised of the legends of golf USA, Team Europe, and Team World will compete with global bragging rights on the line.
Debuting in November 2022, the annual three-team match play competition will be held at one of America’s great golf courses. The World Champions Cup will be contested across three-days of nine-hole matches (both team formats and singles play). Points will be earned for holes won in each match – all matches will go the full nine-holes. After three-days, the team with the highest points total across all-matches played will win the World Champions Cup.
Sanctioned by the PGA TOUR, the World Champions Cup will immediately become far more than just a golf tournament – the event brings innovation to golf while celebrating its traditions, captivating both fans of old and fans of new, while showcasing international golf on the world’s biggest stage as it has never been done before.
