PGA Cup Tournament History

The PGA Cup was originated in 1973 at Pinehurst (N.C.) Resort, as an outgrowth of the PGA Professional National Championship. Structured after the format of the Ryder Cup, the PGA Cup features top playing PGA Professionals from the United States and Great Britain and Ireland. The competition was held annually until 1984, when both countries agreed to hold this event biennially at alternating sites.
