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.

USA beat Europe for second straight Solheim Cup crown

The United States won the Solheim Cup on Sunday, thwarting Europe's comeback bid to triumph 16 1/2 to 11 1/2 in the women's match-play showdown.

The Americans took a commanding five-point lead into the day's 12 singles matches at Des Moines Golf and Country Club in Iowa.

The scoreboard showed the 14 1/2 points needed for an outright victory when Lizette Salas sank a par putt at the 18th for a 1-up win over Jodi Ewart Shadoff of England.

"My hands are still shaking just thinking about it," said Salas, who was draped in a US flag on the green in a low-key celebration.

Indeed the moment was little more than a formality, with the Americans already assured of the win thanks to the number of matches on course in which they were leading.

Sweden's Stenson captures Wyndham Championship

Sweden's Henrik Stenson claimed his first title since winning the 2016 British Open, outdueling Ollie Schniederjans down the stretch Sunday to win the USPGA Tour's Wyndham Championship.

The 41-year-old from Gothenburg closed with a six-under 64 for a 22-under 258 total to set a tournament scoring record at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.

He won by one stroke over American Schniederjans, who roared to the finish with birdies on his final two holes en route to 64.

But Stenson matched Schniederjans hole-for-hole -- both producing birdies at three of their last four holes.

Stenson drained a 40-foot putt on the par-four 17th to help seal his 17th international title including his sixth on the USPGA Tour.

"He pressured me...

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.
