The “Presidents Cupdate” offers updates and insight as anticipation builds for the event’s return to Melbourne, Australia, to be contested at The Royal Melbourne Golf Club on 9-15 December 2019.

Eight players on each team can officially say they’re #Melbourne and Presidents Cup bound! And if your name is Cameron Smith or Bryson DeChambeau, you were probably sweating more than most after holding onto that No. 8 spot in the standings. #phew

But when all was said and done, Smith had plenty to celebrate that Sunday evening along with turning 26 years old. #cheers

Since our last #Cupdate, Webb Simpson was on the outside looking in before two runner-up finishes secured a return trip Royal Melbourne where he made his Presidents Cup debut for the U.S. Team in 2011.

Then there was history to be made on the International Team. Abraham Ancer finished runner-up at THE NORTHERN TRUST to leap inside the top 8 and will be Mexico’s first-ever representative in the Presidents Cup.

C.T. Pan will do likewise for Chinese Taipei, while Haotong Li will officially introduce China to the Presidents Cup.
