The 16th edition of the biennial Presidents Cup will be played at the Medinah Country Club, outside Chicago, in 2026.
The Course #3 at the club, which famously hosted the 2012 Ryder Cup, where Europe pulled off a remarkable comeback to beat the US, has also been the venue for two PGA Championships and three US Opens.
The Presidents Cup, the biennial matchplay competition which pits a 12-man team from the US against international players from outside Europe, continues to grow in importance following the 2019 edition at Royal Melbourne.
The Tiger Woods-led American side won 16-14 against an International team, featuring three Australians.
“As the significance of the Presidents Cup continues to grow, we look forward to showcasing the 2026 event from… a storied venue in Medinah Country Club,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement.
“One year ago, we saw an influx of great young talent on the International Team taking on a very experienced US team that resulted in a dramatic four days of competition for our fans throughout the world.
“I fully expect that competitive momentum to continue in the coming years.”
In conjunction with this year’s Ryder Cup being postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the 2021 Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina was moved to 2022.
The event will return to Royal Montreal Golf Club in 2024.
