The American Team has dominated the event held every other year since 1994, winning all but two editions. The International squad took home its only victory in 1998 while the two teams tied five years later in 2003. 

Captained by Tiger Woods, the Americans bested the Internationals by a score of 16-14 at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia in 2019. Originally planned for 2020, the tournament was postponed for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The scoring system of the tournament is match play, with a point awarded to the winners of each match. There are a total of 30 points awarded, so the winning team needs to garner 15.5 points to win the Cup. A total of nine fourball and foursomes are played over the first three days, with 12 single individual matches conducted on the final day of the Cup.
