The Presidents Cup, now in its 14th edition, first launched in 1994.
Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Prince William County, Virginia, was the host site for the first biennial competition pitting the top 12 American golfers vs. 12 of the best golfers from around the world, minus the European nations.
The 38th President of the United States, Gerald R. Ford, was named honorary chairman.
The team captains were Hale Irwin, who also played for the U.S., and David Graham for the International squad.
The U.S. won that inaugural event, 20-12. Davis Love III went 4-0-1 that week, while Fred Couples went 3-0. Jay Haas (3-2-0) and Jim Gallagher, Jr. (3-1-1) also each won three matches for the U.S.
The International squad, which lost Greg Norman just days before the competition due to illness, was led by Vijay Singh, who went 3-1-1.
