The President's Cup will be held in South Korea for the first time starting in 2015. It has not yet been determined which course will host the biennial event featuring the United States vs. the Internationals.

"The growth of the game in Asia is well documented, and the fact that we have three South Korean players on the International Presidents Cup team this year illustrates the strength of golf in that country, which is only going to get stronger in the next four years," said Tim Finchem, PGA Tour commissioner.

K.J. Choi, K.T. Kim, and Y.E. Yang are the three Asian members on the current International team. "A lot of my peers, a lot of younger generation Korean golfers, are also eyeing to increase their world rankings, get better and hopefully have a few more Koreans on the International team by 2015," Kim said.

"With the Presidents Cup coming into Korea and with a lot of Asian players growing up, it's going to be another endeavor for the younger generation to build upon what we opened up."
