PGA overhauls Presidents Cup format


LOS ANGELES: The PGA Tour announced an overhaul for the format of the Presidents Cup on Monday (Tuesday in Manila), bowing to calls to reduce the total number of points on offer despite opposition from the United States team. A statement from the PGA said the changes, which would take effect at the next Presidents Cup in October, would see the total number of matches in the Ryder Cup style event reduced from 34 to 30. The new structure for the event would see five four-ball and five foursomes played over the first two days, versus six and six as in previous years.
