The United States won the inaugural UBS Cup in 2001, held on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, by a score of 12 ½ - 11 ½. The U.S. then retained the trophy with a 14 ½ - 9 ½, victory in 2002 on the Seaside Course at Sea Island, Ga., and a 12-12 draw in 2003, again at Sea Island.
The competition begins with six foursome matches on Nov. 19, six-four ball matches on Nov. 20 and the twelve single matches will conclude play on Nov. 21.
