Tiger confirms he'll play in Melbourne

Tiger confirms he'll play in Melbourne”

Woods saved his fourth and final pick for himself, meaning he'll play in a Presidents Cup for the first time since 2013 and the third time at Royal Melbourne following matches in 1998 and 2011.

Woods and Team USA will take on Ernie Els and the Internationals in the 13th edition of the Presidents Cup, to be held December 9-15 at Royal Melbourne in Australia.

"That's why I went for these four guys who are very consistent and strong under pressure".

"It was an experience I will never forget but we left a lot to be desired on the golf course", he said. "I think it balances things really well", added the four-time major victor.

Australia's former world No. 1 Day will feature in his fifth Presidents Cup despite having seen his ranking slip to 29th, while world No. 44 Hadwin will make his second appearance after his debut in 2017.

The captain of the US team and 15-time major victor continued his remarkable sporting comeback from a crippling back injury to claim a record-equalling 82nd PGA Tour title in Japan a fortnight ago.

"Even as a child, it has always been a dream of mine to make the Presidents Cup", Im said. It was his first such team; he barely missed making the 1993 Ryder Cup team and was not chosen as a captain's pick for that event. "There was a lot of really good talent this year and I know his decision was extremely hard".

Niemann, ranked 54, became the first player from Chile to win on the PGA Tour when he triumphed at the Greenbrier in September and the 21-year-old followed up with tied 12th in a high-quality field at the CJ Cup in South Korea last month.

"I don't want to say Tiger doesn't have a good record but you look at his match-play record through the years ... and I think the other players, they really get up to play against Tiger, as well they should". "He's very accurate and I feel like the way we execute our short game is similar".

Yesterday, worldwide team captain Ernie Els announced his four captains picks as 32-year-old Canadian Adam Hadwin, 21 year-old Korean Sungjae Kim, 20-year-old Chilean Joaquin Niemann and former world number one Jason Day.

Hadwin got the call from Els on Monday and said that when he saw the captain's name on his phone he actually got a sinking feeling before the good news was delivered.

Royal Melbourne is where the worldwide team had its only victory in 1998.

Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Cantlay, Webb Simpson and Matt Kuchar all earned automatic spots as the top point-getting Americans.

Koepka, Johnson, Kuchar and Thomas were all members of the United States team that won 19-11 in New Jersey in 2017, their seventh straight triumph.

Woods' record in the Presidents Cup far outshines his record in the Ryder Cup, as does the record of the United State in the team competition.
