After a process that has seen numerous fan votes, the full rosters for this year’s Presidents Cup were unveiled by organizers yesterday.
The event, which pits the United States against Europe in a Ryder Cup-style format, goes down next week in Nokia, Finland, as a precursor to the European Open. And the teams are stacked:
With an average rating of 1017.4, the United States is the clear favorite over Europe, which clocks in at 995. But with a bevy of Finnish talent, Europe comes in with a bit of a home field advantage as it aims to end the States’ run of seven straight Presidents Cup wins.
