"We've seen tremendous interest already in The Presidents Cup 2013 -- the 10th staging of this prestigious event -- as illustrated by the more than 7,000 weekly tickets that have been sold through Muirfield Village Golf Club and the Memorial Tournament offers, and several of our private hospitality areas are already sold out," said The Presidents Cup Executive Director Matt Kamienski. "We're thrilled to now open tickets up to the general public and begin the real countdown to what promises to be an exciting event for golf fans in Ohio and those watching around the world."
Muirfield Village Golf Club becomes the third U.S. golf course to host The Presidents Cup, joining Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Prince William County, Va., (1994, 1996, 2000) and Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco, Calif., (2009). Muirfield Village is the first club in the world to host three of golf's most prestigious international team competitions?The Presidents Cup, The Ryder Cup and The Solheim Cup. The Americans currently hold a 7-1-1 record in the competition, with Fred Couples leading the U.S. Team to victory in 2009 and 2011. Couples will return as U.S. Team captain in 2013, and World Golf Hall of Fame member Nick Price will lead the International Team.
In Nov. 2011, the U.S. Team captured The Presidents Cup for the seventh time, led by a 5-0-0 performance by veteran Jim Furyk. Tiger Woods, one of Couples' two captain's picks, clinched the Cup for the United States with a 4-and-3 win over Australia's Aaron Baddeley in Sunday Singles.
For Woods, it was the second consecutive time he had scored the winning point at The Presidents Cup, becoming only the second player to accomplish that feat (Couples, 1994, 1996) and the first captain's pick to do so. Norman's International Team played well, but was undone by the Foursomes competition. The Internationals were outscored 8-3 in foursomes and eventually lost the Cup by four points (19-15).
The Presidents Cup, a team match play competition featuring 24 of the world's top golfers -- 12 from the United States and 12 from around the world, excluding Europe -- is held every two years, and since 1996 has alternated between United States and international venues. The Presidents Cup was developed to give the world's best non-European players an opportunity to compete in international team match-play competition. The U.S. Team has won seven of the nine previous Presidents Cups, and the only win by the International Team came at the 1998 event in Melbourne. The Presidents Cup 2003 ended in a tie.
