"Over the span of several decades this event has evolved tremendously into the global showcase it is today, and I am thrilled to help continue that momentum. "So many legendary captains have come before me, so now to be here as the 2024 US Team Captain is quite remarkable." Golf betting Furyk is the tenth man to skipper the United States in the President's Cup. "Jim has been a role model and a tremendous ambassador for the PGA TOUR during his remarkable career," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan. "And given the role he has played in the growth and success of the Presidents Cup over the last 25 years as both a competitor and a captain's assistant, it's fitting he will bring his leadership skills to Montreal in 2024 where he takes on the role of U.S. Team Captain."
Furyk is out to make more cherished memories at a venue that is already close to his heart. "Royal Montreal holds some unforgettable memories for me, as I know it does for so many other players and fans that witnessed the 2007 Presidents Cup," said Furyk. "The golf course is a perfect setting for match play, and I know the passionate Canadian golf fans will create an amazing atmosphere onsite, delivering an extremely special iteration of the event."
