    Royal Montreal Golf Club in Canada will host the 2024 Presidents Cup, the PGA Tour announced on Monday evening.

    It will be the second time in the competition’s prestigious history that the club will welcome the American and International teams after staging a highly-entertaining event back in 2007, when local boy Mike Weir beat Tiger Woods in the Sunday singles.

    In a statement, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said the Canadian crowds are some of the best golf supporters in the world and that their passion for the game will make for another exciting team event.

    ‘The people of Canada are some of the most loyal and passionate sports fans in the world, and given the overwhelming success of the Presidents Cup in 2007, it was a natural next step for the event to return to the Royal Montreal in 2024.

    ‘The Presidents Cup continues to grow and expand along with the global growth of our sport while leaving an indelible legacy of giving back throughout the world.

    ‘I have no doubt that with the support of our fans, the corporate community and governments of Quebec and Canada and the City of Montreal, the Presidents Cup 2024 will continue to the positive trajectory of this event.’

    With this year’s edition of the Ryder Cup postponed until 2021, it means that the follow-up team events have also been moved on by a year.

    As a result, Quail Hollow in Charlotte will host the 2022 Presidents Cup before it moves to Canada for the next instalment as part of the International team’s turn to stage the event.

    Woods’ American team beat Ernie Els’ International outfit 16-14 during last year’s Presidents Cup, which was hosted by Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia.
