The PGA Tour announced that Jim Furyk has been appointed captain of the United States team for the 2024 Presidents Cup.

Furyk, 52, is a 17-time tour winner, highlighted by his triumph at the 2003 US Open. He also holds the record for lowest round in tour history thanks to a final-round 58 at the 2016 Travelers Championship. Furyk has made more than 630 starts on tour and ranks fifth on the all-time earnings list.

“Being selected by my peers to take on the role as captain of the US team for the 2024 Presidents Cup is truly an honour that I am humbled and excited to accept,” Furyk said. “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.”

Furyk is far from foreign to the Presidents Cup, competing in seven matches as a player and serving as a vice-captain twice. He previously captained the US at the 2018 Ryder Cup as well.

“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 US team captain.”

Last November the tour announced Mike Weir will captain the International team. The appointment of the Canadian was not a surprise, as the event will visit Royal Montreal Golf Club in Quebec, Canada.

The 2024 Presidents Cup will be held from September 26-29. The Americans are the defending champions, and have won the past nine matches.
