The Presidents Cup has been held biennially since 1994.[1] Initially, it was held in even numbered years, with the Ryder Cup being held in odd numbered years. However, the cancellation of the 2001 Ryder Cup due to the September 11 attacks pushed both tournaments back a year, and the Presidents Cup is now held in odd numbered years.

Coverage overview[edit]

CBS covered the first three Presidents Cups (1994[2], 1996 and 1998). Beginning in 2000, the American broadcast television rights moved over to NBC, who has held it ever since.

On the weekday cable side, ESPN[3] like CBS covered the first three President Cup. TNT then carried the Presidents Cup from 2000 to 2007; Golf Channel assumed those rights beginning with the 2009 event as part of its overall deal for PGA Tour cable rights.
