Tiger Woods to captain 2019 Presidents Cup team

Tiger Woods to captain 2019 Presidents Cup team

Els, a four-time major victor, takes over from Nick Price who has guided the Internationals at the last three Presidents Cups.

Tiger Woods will be named the US 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.

The pair is expected to be announced as captains Tuesday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The duo famously dueled at the 2003 event in South Africa in a playoff, tying for three holes before darkness intervened and the match was called, with both teams agreeing to share the cup.

Also the announcement of Woods as the 2022 USA Captain will be a huge boost to the Presidents Cup that has suffered for many years given the USA side has won 10 of 12 events since the inaugural tournament in 1994.

Els, and a victor of four Majors, made his Presidents Cup debut in 1996 and was a member of the only worldwide winning side two years later, and all up, has contested eight Presidents Cups with the last being in 2013.

Woods' solid performance was further proof that the 14-time major victor is a force again after last April's spinal fusion surgery on his lower back, coming tantalisingly close to ending a five-year title drought. Els, for his part, was an assistant at Liberty National for the Internationals, and is tied for most player appearances with Adam Scott and Vijay Singh with eight. However, the historical template has been somewhat upended as Stricker was the captain for the last Presidents Cup team, and he seems to be a likely candidate for the 2020 Ryder Cup captaincy, too.

The moves will hopefully inject some much-need vitality into the biennial competition.

Els, a four-time major victor, takes over from Nick Price who has guided the Internationals at the last three Presidents Cups, including a year ago when the United States romped to a 19-11 victory on home soil at Liberty National in New Jersey.
