Largest Margins of Victory at the Presidents Cup

Which team, and which golfers, have won by the biggest margins in the Presidents Cup? The team record for margin of victory is 11 points, and the golfers' record for margin of victory in a match is 7-and-6.

The Presidents Cup is an every-other-year tournament in which the United States team squares off against the International team. (The International team is comprised of golfers from countries not represented in the Ryder Cup.) Thirty matches are played within the tournament.

Biggest Overall Win in the Presidents Cup

In the overall USA-vs-International score — the final score of the tournament each time it is played — the biggest win is 11 points. In the 2000 Presidents Cup, Team USA defeated Team International by a score of 21.5 to 10.5.

That is the only time so far that one team has beaten the other by a double-digit margin. In the 1998 Presidents Cup, Team USA's winning margin was nine points.

Biggest Win in a Presidents Cup Match

In the matches played within a Presidents Cup, 6-and-5 scores have happened numerous times. But a 7-and-6 win has happened only twice, once in singles and once in foursomes.

In the 1996 Presidents Cup, David Frost of Team International defeated the USA's Kenny Perry by a 7-and-6 score in a singles match.

And in the 2011 Presidents Cup, Team International's Adam Scott and K.J. Choi teamed to defeated Jim Furyk and Tiger Woods of Team USA by a 7-and-6 margin in a foursomes match.
