Tiger Woods to be named 2019 Presidents Cup captain for showdown in Australia

Tiger Woods To Serve As Captain For Presidents Cup

Tiger Woods will be named the USA team's captain for the 2019 Presidents Cup in Melbourne, Australia, according to a report by Alex Miceli of the Morning Read, who cited sources.

Two people involved in the Presidents Cup tell The Associated Press that Woods and Els have agreed to be captains for the 2019 matches in Melbourne.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because the captain selections have not been announced, but it is expected to become official during this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

It will be Woods first taste of U.S. team captaincy after being a 2016 Hazeltine Ryder Cup vice-captain and also a vice-captain under Stricker at last year's Presidents Cup. They went three holes at Fancourt but the event ended in a tie after it was deemed to dark to continue. "The core group of players on the US Team have a lot of talent, enthusiasm and great team camaraderie".

The rules then were for a player from each team to have his name placed in an envelope, and they would play sudden-death to decide the outcome of the Presidents Cup.

"Today marks the start of a two-year program of events and activities by the U.S. PGA TOUR's Australian operations, who along with the Victorian Government, host clubs and other golf organisations will work together to grow the game and cement Victoria as Australia's home of golf". Els had to make a 12-foot par putt on the next hole to extend the playoff.

Woods referred to it at the time as one of his most nerve-wracking moments.

Four-time major victor Ernie Els.

"After working as a captain's assistant for Steve in 2017, I realised that I wanted to captain the 2019 event at Royal Melbourne", said Woods. The Presidents Cup has been reduced to 30 matches over four days, and the format is not likely to change for the next one.

After years of battling back issues, Woods looked close to his old dominant self on Sunday when he finished runner-up to Englishman Paul Casey at the Valspar Championship. He is slated to be a vice captain at the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris, too.
