Presidents Cup International and U.S. Teams starting to take shape

Matsuyama, Scheffler lead respective teams with four months to go

MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada – With just under four months to go until the Presidents Cup returns to The Royal Montreal Golf Club in Montreal, Canada, International and U.S. Team standings are starting to take shape as the game’s premier players try to lock up automatic spots to compete in the event’s 15th playing.

Leading the way for the International Team is Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama, who owns three top-10 finishes on the PGA TOUR this season, including a win at The Genesis Invitational in February. The 32-year-old has competed in the Presidents Cup four times in his career, compiling a 7-10-5 all-time record.

Matsuyama is followed in the standings by Australia’s Jason Day and Korea’s Byeong Hun An. Day – a 13-time winner on TOUR – is eyeing his fourth appearance, but first since the 2017 event, while An is looking to make the International Team for the second time in his career after doing so in 2019, where he compiled a 1-2-2 record.

With Canadian icon Mike Weir as the International Team captain, a number of fellow countrymen will be looking to secure a spot alongside their hero in hopes of playing in front of a patriotic crowd in Montreal. Nick Taylor (No. 5) and Corey Conners (No. 9) are the two Canadians currently inside the top 10 in the standings, but Adam Hadwin (No. 11), Taylor Pendrith (No. 14), Mackenzie Hughes (No. 18) and Adam Svensson (No. 20) are all on their heels.

The 2024 International Team will be comprised of six (6) automatic qualifiers and (6) Captain’s picks, with the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) being used to determine the former. The automatic qualifiers will be the top six eligible international players in the OWGR after completion of the 2024 BMW Championship.

The U.S. Team standings are led by Scottie Scheffler, who has notched four wins during the 2024 season, including THE PLAYERS Championship and Masters Tournament. With 11 top-10s in 12 starts, the 27-year-old is a virtual lock to represent the United States in Montreal, where he would be making his second career start in the Presidents Cup. Scheffler competed for the U.S. Team in 2022, compiling an 0-3-1 record in his debut.

Following his win at the PGA Championship in Kentucky, Xander Schauffele moved up to No. 2 in the Presidents Cup U.S. Team standings. After opening the week with a major-championship-record-tying 62, the Olympic Gold Medalist entered Sunday’s final round tied atop the leaderboard with Collin Morikawa at 15-under 198 and held off Bryson DeChambeau with a dramatic birdie on the 72nd hole to post a PGA Championship record 21-under 263 for his first major title.

Schauffele, who owns a 6-3 record in two appearances in the Presidents Cup (2019/2022), moved from No. 3 to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking and will look to secure one of the automatic qualifier spots on Captain Jim Furyk’s U.S. Team on August 25.

The 2024 U.S. Team will be comprised of six (6) automatic qualifiers and six (6) Captain’s picks, with a weighted system based on FedExCup Points from January 1, 2023, through August 25, 2024. The automatic qualifiers will be the top six eligible U.S. players in the OWGR after completion of the 2024 BMW Championship.

Top-6 U.S. Team standings:

  1. Scottie Scheffler
  2. Xander Schauffele
