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.

Day replaces longtime mentor Swatton as caddie

Australia's Jason Day became the latest high-profile golfer to split with his caddie, but said his long association with Col Swatton is far from over.

On the eve of the BMW Championship at Conway Farms near Chicago, Day said Swatton had been a "bit shocked" at the news, after carrying the 29-year-old Australian's bag for all of his career.

"Unfortunately it just didn't work out," Day said. "I'm trying to find my footing here. I had to do it at some point."

Day's dominance from late 2015 through the first half of 2016 saw him capture a first career major and rise to number one in the world.

But a lackluster 2017 campaign has seen him slide to ninth in the world.

Day said Swatton would remain as his coach, but his friend, Luke Reardon, will be on...

LPGA's October Shanghai event cancelled

The Alisports LPGA tournament scheduled to be played in Shanghai October 5-8 has been cancelled due to local permitting problems in China, the LPGA announced on Tuesday.

"It is with deep regret that I need to announce that we will not be playing the event in Shanghai this year," LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan said in a statement issued in Daytona Beach, Florida.

"Unfortunately, we have just received word that the tournament was unsuccessful in obtaining approval from the local district government.

"The hardest part about this news is that we have a title sponsor, a tournament operator, a TV production group and a host venue all set to go. However, in China, sporting events of this nature cannot take place without approvals at multiple levels -- and the local...


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.
