Presidents Cup – Golf: Five players to look out for

The 14th edition of the Presidents Cup takes place this week, as the USA take on the Internationals at Quail Hollow in North Carolina.

The American team – who will be led by captain Davis Love III - are looking to win the event for the ninth consecutive time, with the Internationals seeking just a second victory.

We have looked at the five players to look out for in Charlotte, as the teams battle it out over four days of different formats.

USA 1/7, Tie 16/1, Internationals 7/1

Max Homa

Not only does the Homa come into this event off the back of a win in the Fortinet Championship last week, but he also has an excellent record at the venue.

The 31-year-old – 11/1 to be Top Combined Points Scorer - has won twice at Quail Hollow, with victory in the Wells Fargo Championship in both 2019 and 2022.

The world number 16 has also got team success under his belt, having been part of America's successful Walker Cup team in 2013.

Homa won two of his three matches in that event, in a team that also included Justin Thomas, as the USA ran out 17-9 victors.

Sam Burns

Another player who has made great strides in the last couple of years, Burns is also making his debut in this year's Presidents Cup.

The 26-year-old is a two-time winner on the PGA Tour this year and his run of form has seen him move into the top-15 of the world rankings.

Burns ranked eighth in birdie stats last season and 14th in Scoring Average, which was 69.768, whilst also averaging over 309 yards off the tee.

The man from Louisiana has team golf experience from his amateur years, winning both the Junior Ryder Cup (2014) and the Arnold Palmer Cup (2017).

Burns – 17/2 to be the USA Top Points Scorer - is best friends with Scottie Scheffler, so expect that duo to be paired together in either the fourballs or foursomes.

Cameron Young

The joint-youngest member of the US team, Young is another America rookie that has shown he can deal with the big occasion in recent months.

The 25-year-old only joined the PGA Tour in the 2021-22 season and is still seeking his first victory, after two successes on the Korn Ferry Tour.

Young's ability has been highlighted in the 2022 Majors, with a T3 finished in the PGA Championship before taking second in the Open Championship at St Andrews in July.

He also has good form at Quail Hollow under his belt, having finished T2 in the Wells Fargo Championship back in May – finishing just two shots behind the winner following a final-round 66.

Sungjae Im

If the Internationals are going to stand any chance of lifting the cup, their big names are going to have to deliver and one of those key stars is Sungjae Im.

The South Korean ace has moved into the world's top-20 in the rankings after finishing second in last season's FedEx Cup standings.

He does also have Presidents Cup experience, having played in the 2019 event as captain's pick. Despite the team's defeat in Melbourne, Im lost just one of his four matches, collecting an impressive 3.5 points.

The man from Cheongju is one of four Korean players in the 12-man team and can be backed at 11/2 to be the Internationals Top Points Scorer.

Joo-hyung Kim

Trevor Immelman's Internationals have no fewer than eight rookies in their line-up and one of those is the youngest player in the field.

Joo-hyung is just 20 years of age but he already has a win on the PGA Tour to his name, with victory in August's Wyndham Championship – carding a final round 61 to take the title.

The man who likes to go by the name of Tom, due to his childhood love of Thomas the Tank Engine, reached the FedEx Cup play-offs and also impressed in the Majors.

The world number 22 finished 23rd in the US Open, whilst he was T47 at the Open and missed just one cut in 11 events in the US last season.

Joo-hyung, whose father was also a professional golfer, is 13/2 to be the Internationals' Top Points Scorer and 3/1 to be the Top International Rookie.
