The 2019 Presidents Cup will be the thirteenth release of the Presidents Cup golf rivalry, held at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Victoria, from 12 to 15 December 2019. Imperial Melbourne has recently facilitated the competition in 1998, at which the International group had their solitary triumph, and 2011. It is the main global scene to have held the competition more than once.
The United States group is the shielding champion, having won the 2017 competition 19– 11. Tiger Woods will be the chief of the U.S. group, and Ernie Els will be the chief of the International team.Woods picked Fred Couples, Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker as his colleagues.
Today, U.S. Group Captain Tiger Woods declared Fred Couples, Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker as three of his skipper’s collaborators for the 2019 Presidents Cup, which will come back to The Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia, for a third time Dec. 9-15, 2019. Woods has the choice to name one last colleague preceding the challenge.
Couples drove the U.S. Group as commander three successive occasions (2009, 2011, 2013) and is set to fill in as a chief’s collaborator for a third time in the wake of being selected by skippers Jay Haas and Stricker in 2015 and 2017, separately. Woods and Couples were Presidents Cup colleagues in 1998 and 2005 and banded together up in Woods’ first-since forever coordinate where the two crushed Ernie Els and Vijay Singh, 5 and 4, at Royal Melbourne.
Couples is a four-time Presidents Cup member (1994, 1996, 1998, 2005) with a general record of 9-5-2. He helped lead the U.S. Group to triumph as a player in the initial two versions of the Presidents Cup in 1994 and 1996, where Couples consolidated for a 6-1-0 record at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.
“Freddie and I go route back in the Presidents Cup 2019 Live,” Woods said. “Furthermore, we’re fundamentally ending up at ground zero at Royal Melbourne. He and I collaborated in one of our matches in ’98, I was a skipper’s pick in ’11 and now we get the chance to return there as two pioneers of this group. We will have some good times, yet we’re there to win.”
