ELMSFORD, N.Y. (September 21, 2022) -- Past MGA Player of the Year Cameron Young makes his Presidents Cup debut this week at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., as the United States team looks to build on its 11-1-1 all-time mark against the International team.

Young earned one of six captains picks for the 12-person squad, which is led by Davis Love III. Young fired an impressive 9-under 63 in front of Love in July's Rocket Mortgage Classic, where he eventually logged his fifth second place finish of the season. Young advanced all the way to the TOUR Championship in his rookie season, finishing No. 19 in the FedExCup standings.
The Scarborough, N.Y., native's rise in the professional ranks has been well-documented, with Young winning a pair of Korn Ferry Tour events in 2021 en route to earning his PGA TOUR card.
This season, Young ranked second in Shots Gained: Off-the-Tee (.914) and third in Driving Distance (319.3 yards). He averaged 4.41 birdies per round and had a scoring average of 69.84.
Young is no stranger to team events, having represented the MGA in Carey Cup (2011, 2013) and French-American Challenge (2012, 2014) competitions. He was also a member of the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup and Junior World Cup teams in 2014.
Quail Hollow has hosted the Wells Fargo Championship each spring since 2003, though this year's event moved to TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm due to its hosting of the Presidents Cup for the first time. The layout, which received changes overseen by Tom Fazio in the 1990s, previously welcomed the Kemper Open for 10 years and the World Seniors Invitational for 10 years. It hosted its first major with the PGA Championship in 2017 and welcomes the championship once again in 2025.
Following Thursday's Foursomes matches, Friday consists of Four-Ball matches. Both Foursomes and Four-Ball matches will be contested on Saturday before Singles matches conclude the competition on Sunday.
