Woods v Els as Presidents Cup captains?

Tiger Woods

Ernie Els will captain the worldwide team according to the reports.

File this one under "things we never thought we'd see" - Tiger Woods, US team captain.

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 late Arnold Palmer was the most recent player-captain in the Ryder Cup, in 1963, when he went 4-2-0 in a 23-9 American victory at East Lake in Atlanta.

Last year's loss in NY prompted Els to call for changes to the event ahead of the 2019 edition, including an overhaul of "logistics, scheduling, selection process (and) course set-up". Woods, an American and the most accomplished and popular golfer in the past 20 years, and Els, a South African and an worldwide star, combine competitive energy and golf stature.

The development first was reported by the blog Morning Read.

Woods is no stranger to a leadership role with the American club, taking on assistant responsibilities at the 2016 Ryder Cup and 2017 Presidents Cup.

Els was the logical choice to be the next global captain, following three stints by Nick Price.

Bookmakers Neds have Woods at $7 to win at Bay Hill for an incredible ninth time, ahead of Day at $13.

"I still believe that 28 points will be a better competition, like the Ryder Cup: four games on every match", said South African Louis Oosthuizen, who has played in the past three Presidents Cup matches.

They produced the biggest moment at the Presidents Cup in 2003 in South Africa when they were picked for a sudden-death playoff. Els had to make from 6 feet to match him. They went three holes at Fancourt but the event ended in a tie after it was deemed to dark to continue. Els said it was the first time he felt his legs shake over a putt. 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.

Four-time major victor Els has finished runner-up to Woods seven times, including twice in the majors. That includes twice in the majors, though Woods won those by 15 shots (2000 U.S. Open) and eight shots (2000 British Open). 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.
