Tiger Woods to take over as USA captain

Tiger Woods was an assistant captain at the 2017 Presidents Cup. Keyur Khamar PGA TOUR
Woods will follow Fred Couples, Jay Haas and Steve Stricker as captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team.
Woods will lead the American team to Melbourne, Australia where he will strive to deny an Ernie Els International captained team only a second victory after the Peter Thomson led Internationals shocked the Americans and winning by nine points from the US-led Jack Nicklaus side in 1998 at Royal Melbourne.
The development first was reported by the blog Morning Read.
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.
The 2019 Presidents Cup will be the 13th match in the competition's history.
Wooods has previously served as a vice captain on the 2016 Ryder Cup team and 2017 Presidents Cup team.
The 2003 matches ended in a tie at 17 at Fancourt in South Africa, the home country of Els.
Els and Woods matched par on the first extra hole.
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 had to make from 6 feet to match him.
Woods referred to it at the time as one of his most nerve-wracking moments. 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.
Kid Rock to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame
Stacy used his cover of "Legs" when she entered the arena whilst The Undertaker opted for "American Bad Ass". Even more, some even say that Rock's contributions to WWE were never worthy of consideration to begin with.
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.
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.
There has never been a playing captain in Presidents Cup history for the U.S. The last playing captain in Ryder Cup history was Arnold Palmer in the 1963 match at Atlanta Athletic Club.
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.
Woods plays at Bay Hill this week, where he is an eight-time victor.
