Steve Stricker is the next Team USA Presidents Cup captain.
Announced today by the PGA of America, Stricker will captain the American team at the 2017 Presidents Cup held at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J. Nick Price will captain the International team.
It will be Stricker’s first time as head captain of an event, athough he’ll get practice as a co-captain under Davis Love III for the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club this fall.
“I’m incredibly honored to have been selected as a U.S. Team captain for the Presidents Cup and am looking forward to it coming to Liberty National, one of my favorite venues,” Stricker said. “This even has meant a lot to me, and I’m looking forward to leading what will be a very promising U.S. Team in 2017.”
Price, on the other hand, has plenty of experience, having captained the International team in both 2013 and 2015. The International squad has not won the event since 1998.
The Presidents Cup will take place Sept. 25-Oct. 1, 2017.
