Tiger Woods To Serve As Captain For Presidents Cup

Report Tiger Woods Ernie Els to be named 2019 Presidents Cup captains

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.

Tiger Woods will be named the United States' captain for the 2019 Presidents Cup, according to the Associated Press. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the captain selections have not been announced.

The announcement comes as Woods surges into outright favouritism for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational, on the back of a second place finish at the Valspar Championship on Sunday. After it became too dark to continue play, with the pair still tied after three playoff holes, team captains Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player agreed to end the event in a tie.

The 42-year old 14-time major victor has shown glimpses of his former self heading into the year's first major, the Masters at Augusta, which begins in just under three weeks.

The Presidents Cup has not had a playing captain since Hale Irwin went 2-1 for the Americans in a 20-12 US victory in 1994.

Already greenlit for two seasons, the series will follow a family of caretakers that work and live in the famous NY landmark. Central Park is a new musical animated comedy from Bouchard and is co-written by Josh Gad and Nora Smith alongside Bouchard.

Wooods has previously served as a vice captain on the 2016 Ryder Cup team and 2017 Presidents Cup team. One person with knowledge of the decision said Woods reached out to the PGA Tour about his interest in being the next captain.

The 2019 Presidents Cup will be the 13th match in the competition's history.

They also have battled plenty in tournaments. That includes twice in the majors, though Woods won those by 15 shots (2000 U.S. Open) and eight shots (2000 British Open).

The 2019 matches will be December 12-15 at Royal Melbourne, the latest the Presidents Cup has been played.

So, expect some type of format change to reduce the number of points from 30 and minimize the American depth, plus perhaps other tweaks for which Els has lobbied. He's reached out in those team rooms and really been a big part of helping the younger players and being alongside of them and then also helping the captain with some hard tasks and asks and X's and O's.
