Feldberg gathered 1115 votes, which is most out of all six candidates for both teams. By winning the elections he makes Presidents Cup history by being one of the two players who makes the team in all Presidents Cups to date. Vesala received 943 votes – the second highest amount out of all the candidates. Seems like the Finns really rallied behind their countryman! Both captains really deserved their place in the team and can step in the captain’s shoes with confidence.
Congratulations to both captains and thank you to all other candidates: Avery Jenkins (USA), Das Loomis (USA), Andreas Gertsh (EUR) & Premysl Novak (EUR)!
Next up: Captain’s choice players
The captains start their duties almost immediately with the captain’s choice players’ selections. The captains’ choices will be published in one week on June 20th. Stay tuned!
