Presidents Cup 2022: All 24 golfers playing at Quail Hollow, ranked
Despite what the naysayers will have you believe, the show will go on this week at Quail Hollow, site of the 14th Presidents Cup. LIV Golf has robbed captain Trevor Immelman and his International team of a handful of its top players, leaving Davis Love III and his American squad (which lost some decent names, too) a hefty -500 favorite, per the DraftKings Sportsbook. Based on those odds, this thing might as well be over.
Even so, once the first drives are hit, the International team will be playing to win. And while it’s abundantly clear how outclassed they are on paper—the average World Ranking among the Americans is 11.83, while no International player ranks higher than 16th—the underdogs might prove to be a little friskier than prognosticators are predicting. There are 33 combined PGA Tour victories on the International side, a decent amount of experience between Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama, and plenty of youth.
Our ranking of all 24 golfers competing in Charlotte, however, still leans heavily toward the U.S., as expected. As was the case when we looked at all the golfers teeing it up at last year’s Ryder Cup, the premise remains the same: If we had to draft every player on both teams, here’s how it would shake out.
