Jim Furyk has been named captain of the US team at the 2024 Presidents Cup.

The biennial event between American and international teams is slated for September 24-29, 2024 in Montreal.

Canada's Mike Weir was named captain of the international squad in November.

Furyk, a 17-time winner on the PGA Tour, makes his debut as captain. He played in seven Presidents Cups from 1998-2011, compiling a 20-10-3 record, and was a captain's assistant in 2015 and 2017.

"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," said Furyk, captain of the victorious US squad at the 2018 Ryder Cup.

"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 U.S. Team Captain is quite remarkable."

Furyk participated in the only previous Presidents Cup staged at The Royal Montreal Golf Club in Quebec back in 2007, posting a 3-2 record in the Americans' 19 1/2 to 14 1/2 victory.

"Royal Montreal holds some unforgettable memories for me, as I know it does for so many other players and fans that witnessed the 2007 Presidents Cup," Furyk said. "The golf course is a perfect setting for match play, and I know the passionate Canadian golf fans will create an amazing atmosphere onsite, delivering an extremely special iteration of the event."

The US team has won the last nine Presidents Cups, including the most recent edition in Charlotte, N.C., in 2022 under captain Davis Love III. The international team has not won since 1988 in Melbourne, Australia.

Furyk, 52, won the 2003 US Open and established a tour record with a round of 58 at the 2016 Travelers Championship.
