These 15 Americans lead the 2024 Presidents Cup standings 2 months out

2024 Travelers Championship

In a busy year of golf, the Presidents Cup is another event that is happening later this summer.

There remains a major to be played, the Open Championship, followed by the Olympics in Paris and the FedEx Cup Playoffs. And in September, the Presidents Cup will take center stage in the golf world. The 2024 edition of the Presidents Cup will be played Sept. 26-29 at Royal Montreal Golf Club in Canada.

Six players will automatically qualify for each team while the remaining half of each roster will be decided by captain’s picks from the United States’ Jim Furyk and International’s Mike Weir.

The teams use different criteria to determine their automatic qualifiers. U.S. players earn qualifying points based on a weighted FedExCup points system calculated between January 1, 2023 through August 24, 2024. The top six on the points list after the 2024 BMW Championship will earn a spot on the U.S. Team.

The International Team will utilize the Official World Golf Ranking to determine its six automatic qualifiers. All OWGR points awarded through the 2024 BMW Championship will apply towards determining the six automatic qualifiers. There is no set time period for OWGR point accumulation.

LIV Golf players are not eligible for the Presidents Cup. The PGA Tour runs the event.

With two months until the six automatic qualifiers for the United States are selected, here’s a look at the top 15 Americans in the 2024 Presidents Cup standings.
