Davis Love III has been named as captain of the United States team for the 2022 Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow.
The event was due to take place in 2021 but was postponed a year following the disruption to the golfing calendar due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Ryder Cup was pushed back from 2020 to 2021 and the Presidents Cup was also delayed 12 months.
2020 Presidents Cup Captain
The Internationals have already named South African Trevor Immelmann as captain for the 14th Presidents Cup, which takes place at Quail Hollow on September 22-25, 2022.
His opposing captain in Charlotte will be Love III, a six-time playing member of the and three-time assistant in 2013, 2015 and 2017.
“It’s a tremendous honour to be named captain of the US Team for the 2022 Presidents Cup,” Davis Love III said in a state released on PresidentsCup.com.
“My history with this event dating back to 1994 conjures up indelible memories of competition, camaraderie and sportsmanship, and I’m thrilled to be leading the top American players into Quail Hollow Club next September.
“The US Team has been guided by some of the game’s all-time greats since 1994, and I will do my best to carry on that legacy as we look to retain the Cup.”
Love III will be the ninth captain of the US Team, following in the footsteps of Hale Irwin (1994), Arnold Palmer (1996), Jack Nicklaus (1998, 2003, 2005 & 2007), Ken Venturi (2000), Fred Couples (2009, 2011 & 2013), Jay Haas (2015), Steve Stricker (2017) and Tiger Woods (2019).
The US team have won nine of the 13 President Cups, including the last eight in a row. The Internationals have won just once, and never on American soil.
“Davis has been instrumental in the foundation and continued growth of the Presidents Cup, and it’s only fitting that he returns to Charlotte to lead the U.S. Team in 2022,” said PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan.
“He has been a role model to so many young players on the PGA TOUR, and I know that leadership will serve him well in this role as he leans on his wealth of experience as a competitor and captain in team competition.”
