2007 Presidents Cup rescheduled

The dates for the 2007 Presidents Cup will be pushed back a week to avoid clashing with the planned overhaul of the U.S. PGA calendar, commissioner Tim Finchem said on Tuesday.

Originally scheduled for Sept. 18-23 at the Royal Montreal Golf Club, the biennial competition pitting an international team against the United States, will now be staged from Sept. 24-30.

Finchem announced last week that starting in 2007 the PGA Tour calendar would be centred around the FedEx Cup, a points- based competition leading into a playoff and culminating with the Tour Championship in September.

"This move will help ensure that world's best players have an extra week to prepare for the 2007 Presidents Cup," Finchem said on the PGA Tour's website.

"With the conclusion of the FedEx Cup competition at The Tour Championship the week Sept. 10-16, we felt that the competitors could use an extra week to rest and be fully prepared for The Presidents Cup."

The United States have dominated the six Presidents Cups, winning four of them, including a thrilling victory in September at Lake Manassas.

The Internationals' only victory came in 1998 when the event was staged in Melbourne, Australia. The teams shared the Cup in 2003.
