World Golf Teachers Cup®

The World Golf Teachers Cup is the biennial world championship event of the World Golf Teachers Federation (WGTF). There is no other event in golf like it, as it is golf’s only global competition for golf teaching professionals. The World Cup brings nearly 200 teaching professionals from over 30 countries together every two years for championship honors in both individual and team competition. Each team represents a country, comprised of at least three individuals from that country on six-person teams. Those not representing a country are still competing in the individual portion of the tournament. The event normally rotates between the United States and an international location. All WGTF fully-certified members are eligible to compete.
