Apostrophes[edit]

Moving to Presidents Cup, without an apostrophe, which is the official name. Wincoote 09:41, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Well, i venture that the official name is wrong. The omition of an apostrophe makes me feel icky!

I agree, but the mis-spelling of omission has a similar effect on me! Kevin McE 12:10, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Just to clear it all up....It's not a cup that has been possessed by the presidents or one of the presidents, so it's not the possessive form as in "Presidents' Cup" nor even "President's Cup". Rather, it's a cup for all the presidents. Think of it like a similar construction regarding a certain sailing trophy, The Americas Cup --- it's a cup for the Americas (all three of them, mind you) and is certainly not a Cup possessed by the Americas nor one of the Americas nor even 'America' (wherever that is). It's also like saying The Soldiers Memorial (which would be a memorial for soldiers) and is not like saying The Soldiers's Memorial (which would be a memorial possessed by all the soldiers) nor The Soldier's Memorial (which would be a memorial possessed by one specific soldier).

Locations[edit]

I've noted where Robert Trent Jones GC is to my satisfaction, but since I am not from Canada, Australia, or South Africa, I do not know what is the typical way of referring to those facilities are. I invite a native of one of those countries to make those designations as accurate as possible.

Scoring?[edit]

The article says, "alternate shot and best ball formats (also known as "foursome" and "four ball" matches respectively)." I have no idea what these scoring systems are. How do they operate? They are not defined in the match play article. Nick Beeson (talk) 15:39, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

International team flag[edit]

It'd be nice to have the 'flag' for the International team: small Presidents Cup with 12 stars above and wiggly lines underneath, in blue and yellow

It is unfortunately trademarked and almost certainly under copyright (the only chance would be if it was considered too simple to copyright, and it's probably complex enough)... we would only be able to use it under fair use, and I'm not sure how feasible that would be given fair use policies.

Which President?[edit]

The article needs to tell us which President is being referred to in the Tournament's title. For instance, is it the same as the Honorary Chairman (who may or may not be a current or former President of the US or South Korea, or whatever), or did it originally refer to the first Chairman, former President Gerald Ford, or to the President of some US or World Golf organization, or something else entirely?
