The 15th Mercedes-Benz - Cole Haan Cup!

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Cup will be played on Friday, 6 October at the same venue as before, Atsugi Kokusai C.C. in Kanagawa prefecture. NEW this year is that we play all of the West course as the East Out course we played last year is under reconstruction.

Event History

The idea of a Europe-U.S. annual golf event was first raised in 2001 in discussions between Mr. Robert Grondine (former ACCJ President and Governor who sadly passed away in 2011), Mr. Richard Collasse (then EBC Chairman) and Mr. Erik Ullner (then EBC Vice-Chairman). The concept was to have an annual high-profile "Ryder Cup in Japan" to foster closer relations between US and European business leaders and companies in Japan.

A freak leaf during a putt may cost this Tour player a PGA Tour card

On the 15th hole at the DAP Championship on Sunday, Matthew Southgate experienced something bar- a blowing leaf altering the course of his ball, but what ws really bizarre is the ruling and subsequent penalty. As you can see in the video, Southgate faced a short birdie putt on the 15th hole. After the ball was struck, a leaf blew on the green and colliding with the ball, sent it a foot wide of the hole.

Golf is hard ... especially when you're playing for a @PGATOUR card. ⛳️

A disappointed Southgate tapped in for par. Or what he thought was a par…Instead, he was found to break rule 19-1b:

If a player's ball in motion after a stroke on the...

McIlroy says long break will put him in shape for 2018

Rory McIlroy says a three-month break will put him in the best shape for 2018, even though it means he'll miss the European Tour season finale. "I'm excited for it," McIlroy said Wednesday on the eve of the Northern Trust -- the first of four tournaments in the US PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs. "To have three months where I can focus on myself, my health, my game and just improvement –- I don't think I'm ever going to get a chance like this in my career again." McIlroy continues to battle the after-effects of a cracked rib suffered early in the season. "It's something that I'm going to have to address," McIlroy said. "If I manage it over these next few weeks, I can't do any damage to it." After the PGA Tour playoffs McIlroy will play the Dunhill Links Championship in October and step...


Can Matsuyama Be Japan's First Major Winner? PGA Championship Preview

According to the current World Golf Rankings, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama is the third ranked player in the world, and after his emphatic victory yesterday at Firestone, he is now No.1 in the FEDEX Cup standings too. To date, the Japanese suerstar has chalked up 13 wins with 5 of them on the PGA tour, and three of those in 2017. Add to this 6 top ten finishes on tour this year, two of them at majors, including a runner up at the US Open (Matsuyama had the day's lowest round, a six-under-par 66, to finish four shots adrift of winner Brooks Koepka) and you can see both his pedigree and consistancy.

The under-hyped Matsuyama is often forgotten about by the international media, which seems to suit the quiet Ehime native, who has yet to conduct an interview in English, preferring to...

Tesla's Model 3 To Take Electric Motoring To The Masses

After ten years of waiting, Tesla has revealed the Model 3, the vehicle that CEO Elon Musk hopes will take the electric car to the masses.

At the unveiling of the Model 3 at the company's design studio in Hawthorne, California, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the car will deliver at least 215 miles of range beginning at just ¥4,000,000— that's a bold claim, and an important one for Tesla to meet. Musk is "fairly confident" that deliveries will begin by the end of 2017, and "you will not be able to buy a better car for $4,000,000 even with no options." And it will be one of the safest cars in the world, according to Musk.
