After a three-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Presidents Cup returns this week at Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, North Carolina. It will take place from 22-25 Sept. with Team U.S. and Team International – 24 golfers, 12 in each – will compete for the title. Is there prize money for the winners of the Presidents Cup? Here we look into the Presidents Cup 2022 Purse.
Is there Prize Money for the Winners?
The Presidents Cup is a Charity tournament. It doesn’t offer any prize money for the winners. There is no purse or prize money.
However, a lot of money is involved in the competition for the greater cause, to help those in need.
As per Presidents Cup, since the inception of the Presidents Cup in 1994, more than $54.4 million has been generated from event proceeds. Over the past 25 years, the competition has impacted more than 460 charities in 18 countries worldwide. As part of the Presidents Cup, each player, captain, and captain’s assistant receives $150,000 to distribute to the charitable cause of their choice.
As the players are from different regions, the charity money reaches the world’s far end. From providing medical care for neglected animals in Greenville, South Carolina, to school lunches for underprivileged children in South Korea, from scholarships for children of fallen California firefighters to addiction recovery programs in Australia – these are very few examples.
Who Won the Last Presidents Cup?
Team U.S. leads the competition with an 11-1-1 record. Their last defeat came dating back to 1998, and the draw came in 2003.
The fans hope for another nail-biting finish like the last Presidents Cup in 2019. Team US, captained by Tiger Woods, entered the final day of singles matches trailing by 8-10. They won six singles and tied four on the final day to take the title by 16-14 points.
