2019 Presidents Cup Update
The Presidents Cup returns to Royal Melbourne Golf Club in 2019 and the recent Masters Champion Tiger Wood’s wants to be a playing Captain for the event.
The Presidents Cup was previously held at Royal Melbourne in 1998 and 2011. The International team has only one once in the event, hosted here in 1998. Greg Norman dominating play at the event.
Woods will wear two hats next December as both captain and player now that he’s currently 9th on the U.S. Presidents Cup points list. On Tuesday at the Hero World Challenge Woods was asked about his role as a potential playing captain.
“Would I like to be a playing captain? Yes,” said Woods, pointing out that Hale Irwin served as a playing captain at the ’94 matches after qualifying for the U.S. team. “That’s very similar to what I would do. If I make the team on points, yes, I’ll play.”
And if he doesn’t earn a spot on the team, would he consider naming himself one of his four captain’s picks?
“Then it’s up to myself, my vice captains and the rest of the players who are already on the team, who is best suited to play,” Woods said. “If we think that it’s someone else, then I don’t play. It will be a team decision on who are the next four picks.”
