One of the most prestigious events in all of golf is the Presidents Cup, which pits the U.S. team against an international team every year. Some significant news emerged regarding the United States roster for the 2022 Presidents Cup, which is set to kick off later this month.

Six players automatically qualify based on the Presidents Cup standings, but six more players are announced by each team’s captain, and U.S captain Davis Love III officially made his selections on Wednesday.

Love has named Colin Morikawa, Jordan Spieth, Max Homa, Cameron Young, Kevin Kisner, and Billy Horschel to the United States team.

They will join Scottie Scheffler, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Justin Thomas, Sam Burns, and Tony Finau in a roster that is looking extremely formidable.

Many have taken to social media following this announcement to express just how stacked they believe this roster truly is.

They will be taking on an international team that was ravaged by several top players leaving for LIV Golf, including Open Championship winner Cameron Smith and Joaquin Niemann, along with Louis Oosthuizen and Abraham Ancer since this is a PGA Tour event.

According to Golf insider Dan Rapoport, the United States team comes into this event currently listed as a -500 favorite over their overseas opponents, which may be a bit generous considering the massive talent disparity between the two teams on paper.

The effects of top players departing for LIV Golf may be felt more in this event than any other that the PGA Tour has had to this point, with some clear omissions making for what feels like a lopsided event heavily favoring the Americans.

Regardless, the format of the event is always fun and it should make for a very entertaining event later this month.
