PRESIDENTS CUP & PGA Tour officials announced Davis Love III as the 2022 Team USA Presidents Cup Captain. South African Trevor Immelman will captain the International Team, and the matches will be contested September 19-25.
Love III won 21 times on the PGA Tour and is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Love won the PGA Championship in 1997.
But Love is no stranger to Presidents Cup play either. Love played in six Presidents Cup teams, including in the inaugural event in 1994 where he went 4-0-1 in helping the U.S. Team to a 20-12 victory.
But Love has also served as an assistant captain in the 2013, 2015 and 2017 Presidents Cups. So he no stranger to the matches. And Love has been captain in 2012 and 2016 for Team USA’s Ryder Cup teams.
“It’s such a tremendous honor to be named captain of the U.S. Team for the 2022 Presidents Cup. Because my history with this event dating back to 1994 conjures up, incredible memories of competition, camaraderie and sportsmanship. So I’m thrilled to be leading the top American players into Quail Hollow Club next September,” said Love. “Because Team USA has been guided by game’s all-time greats since 1994. And I will do my best to carry on that legacy as we try to retain the cup.”
The Quail Hollow Club was first created by famed golf course architect George Cobb in 1961. But the work did not stop there. Because of various championships, the course has seen improvements by the Arnold Palmer Group in 1986. And a redesign by Tom Fazio in 1997. But then Fazio made more modifications in 2016, because of the upcoming PGA Championship in 2017.
Quail Hollow Club has hosted the Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour since 2003.
“Because the Carolina’s mean so much to me and my family, it’s humbling to know that I will return to Charlotte in this role, said Love. “To help carry on the rich sports tradition in the Queen City has developed through the years.”
