2009 Presidents Cup Results

This was the eighth time the Presidents Cup was played. After the American side's victory, the overall standings in the event's history was USA 6, International 1, with one tie.

Final Score: USA 19.5, International 14.5

Dates Played: Oct. 8-11, 2009

Location: Harding Park Golf Club in San Francisco, California

Team Captains: Greg Norman (International) and Fred Couples (USA)

Team Rosters: International — Geoff Ogilvy, Vijay Singh, Camilo Villegas, Retief Goosen, Ernie Els, Angel Cabrera, Mike Weir, Robert Allenby, Y.E. Yang, Tim Clark, Ryo Ishikawa, Adam Scott. USA — Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker, Kenny Perry, Zach Johnson, Stewart Cink, Sean O'Hair, Jim Furyk, Anthony Kim, Justin Leonard, Lucas Glover, Hunter Mahan.
