Presidents Cup returning to Royal Montreal Golf Club in 2024

It’s official: the 2024 Presidents Cup will be staged at Royal Montreal Golf Club.

Michel Lacroix, the in-house announcer of the Montreal Canadiens since 1993 and one of the more renowned sports broadcasters in Canada, opened a Zoom call on Monday, and set the stage for the announcement speaking in French. He then switched to English to introduce PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, who then announced that the 15th Presidents Cup in 2024 will return to Canada.

“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 step for the event to return to The Royal Montreal in 2024,” said Monahan.

Let the record show that The Forecaddie called his shot for Royal Montreal back in January.

The course previously held the seventh edition of the Presidents Cup in 2007. The U.S. won 19​¹⁄₂–14​¹⁄₂. Canadian Mike Weir famously eliminated Tiger Woods, winning the final two holes during the Sunday singles matches.

The U.S. holds the all-time lead in the event, 11-1-1.

The 2022 edition of the biennial competition will be at Quail Hollow in Charlotte. It was originally supposed to be held in 2021 but the coronavirus pandemic forced the Ryder Cup to move from 2020 to 2021, and in a subsequent move, the Presidents Cup moved from 2021 to 2022. The Ryder Cup going forward will remain in odd years, while the Presidents Cup will be played in even years.

Ryan Hart, most recently the tournament director of the Players Championship, was named by Monahan as the executive director of the Presidents Cup in 2024.

Hart was asked about who the Canadian captain would be but he declined to name names, pointing out the 2022 Presidents Cup currently has the honors.

Royal Montreal has hosted the PGA Tour’s Canadian Open ten times.
