Tiger Woods picks himself for Presidents Cup as one of four wildcards

Patrick Reed cannot wait to try and rile the Australian crowds during the President's Cup

"I had to get the respect of the players".

"It would not be seriously a workforce celebration with no having him there, particularly with how he is been playing", Reed additional. Cantlay, Schauffele and Woodland are the only players who have never competed in a Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup. The players, they wanted me to play in the event.

"Freddie was pretty ardent".

Everyone is required to play in at least one match ahead of the Sunday singles, meaning Woods only has to play twice.

"I'm excited to add my talent to the mix of guys and to play for Tiger", Finau said. "'You're on the team, quit being stupid'". I was very pleased to get that phone call. The 2019 Presidents Cup takes place from December 12 to December 15 at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.

In 2011 at Royal Melbourne the Americans won with Woods securing the winning point.

The U.S., which has a 10-1-one all-time history in the Presidents Cup, will be a large favorite with 11 of its 12 players, such as Finau, ranked in the top 16 in the globe. Host Australia is the only nation with multiple playing participants as they have Adam Scott, Cameron Smith, Jason Day and Marc Leishman.

Trump says Bloomberg wouldn't do well in 2020
Analysts say a Bloomberg candidacy could cause the most damage to Biden's prospects, who is seen as the favorite. Advisers to Mr Bloomberg said he would likely make up his mind about the race within days, rather than weeks.

Nevertheless, Woods said he wouldn't be taking anything for granted. "It doesn't matter what the world ranking is, you've got to go out and beat the other guys".

The picks mean Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler are among the big names to miss out, but Reed - who played with Woods at last year's Ryder Cup - was thrilled to join a team whose automatic qualifiers include the likes of Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas.

If Koepka is unable to play, Woods can choose any player to replace him but offered no details Thursday as to who a replacement might be.

Woods will be playing in his ninth Presidents Cup, and his first since 2013.

The top eight American golfers who were already selected prior to Woods's selections were PGA Championship victor Brooks Koepka of West Palm Beach, FL; Justin Thomas of Louisville, KY; Dustin Johnson of Columbia, SC; Patrick Cantlay of Long Beach, CA; Xander Schauffele of San Diego, CA; Webb Simpson of Raleigh, NC; Matt Kuchar of Winter Park, FL and Bryson DeChambeau of Modesto, CA.

At the time, Woods was still recovering from back surgery and said that shortly before the event he wasn't sure he'd be able to fulfill his role as an assistant because he didn't know if he could tolerate riding in a golf cart.

Since returning in early 2018 from a fourth operation on his back, Woods has won three tournaments, including his 15th major at the Masters in April.
