Woods, Els to be named Presidents Cup captains

Woods, Els to be named Presidents Cup captains

Now, they'll meet again in 2019 as captains for the matches in Melbourne, Australia, according to an Associated Press report.

"I'm proud to follow in the footsteps of past captains like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Hale Irwin, Ken Venturi, Fred Couples, Jay Haas and Steve Stricker".

In addition to the announcement of the two captains, officials also unveiled minor changes to format requirements and eligibility for the 2019 Presidents Cup.

Els becomes skipper after Nick Price had taken the role for the last three tournaments. He has played in eight Presidents Cups, winning 24.5 points, second-most in US history.

Tiger Woods has already entertained the idea of player-assistant captain for this year's Ryder Cup.

The Presidents Cup-Ryder Cup captaincy crossover hasn't always been the norm (Fred Couples has captained three Presidents Cups but no Ryder Cups), but the template for global golf has changed.

Despite Perry's fumble, that didn't affect the young waitress' chances whatsoever who received her golden ticket to Hollywood. Now he's able to walk with the help of crutches. "I think if you ain't careful, you might win 'American Idol , '" raved Luke.

Tiger Woods was an assistant captain at the 2017 Presidents Cup.

Els and Woods matched par on the first extra hole.

"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. That includes twice in the majors, though Woods won those by 15 shots (2000 U.S. Open) and eight shots (2000 British Open).

Off the course, Els is the player Woods sought out in the 1996 British Open when he was trying to decide whether to turn pro.

Four-times major victor Els of South Africa has been a runner-up to Woods seven times in his professional playing career, including twice in the majors. 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.
