PGA Tour statement on the Presidents Cup

The PGA TOUR announced on Wednesday a new schedule for The Presidents Cup, following the September 16 announcement of the postponement of The Ryder Cup Matches to September 2002.

The fifth playing of The Presidents Cup will now take place in November of 2003, rather than in 2002 as originally scheduled. The competition will be held at the site designated for 2002, The Links Golf Course at Fancourt Hotel and Country Club Estates in George, South Africa.

As originally planned, The Ryder Cup Matches will be played in 2002 at The De Vere Belfry in Sutton Coldfield, England. They are now scheduled for Sept 27-29, 2002. This is the week immediately following the playing of the World Golf Championships-American Express Championship at Mount Juliet Estate in Kilkenny, Ireland.

"This new schedule provides the most effective response to the need to adjust our schedules in light of the recent tragedies," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem.

"Going forward, these major international team competitions will simply reverse their original positions, with The Ryder Cup Matches played in the even-numbered years, and The Presidents Cup played in odd-numbered years."
