What Happened at the 2000 Presidents Cup

The 2000 Presidents Cup was the first one to use a 4-day schedule rather than a 3-day schedule. The same number of matches were played, they just played them over one more day.

The site, however, was familiar: Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia was the location of a Presidents Cup for the third time. In fact, to this point in the event's history, all three Presidents Cups played in the United States took place at the same course.

The Internationals won the 1998 Presidents Cup by a score of 20.5 to 11.5. But this year, Team USA flipped that score, winning 21.5 to 10.5.

Day 1 was a disaster for Team International, losing all five matches played (foursomes). The Internationals began Day 2 winning four points from the morning fourball session, but that 6-4 deficit was the closest the International team would get. Team USA won the Day 2 afternoon foursomes session 4-1, and led 14-6 going into Sunday singles.

The biggest disappointments for Team International were Ernie Els and Vijay Singh, the side's two superstars. Els and Singh partnered one another three times, and lost all three matches. Els failed to earn any points for his side, first golfer in Presidents Cup history to go 0-5-0, while Singh posted a 1-4-0 record.

For the American side, Davis Love III and Stewart Cink both went 4-0-0.
