Woods keen to be playing captain at Presidents Cup
Tiger puts Bahamas over Aus Open
08 December, 2018, 10:24
The Presidents Cup is set for December 12-15.
In a blow to the 2019 Australian Open, US captain Tiger Woods has confirmed he wants his Presidents Cup players to compete in his Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas rather than playing in Sydney.
Woods is the USA captain and says he plans to play if he qualifies in the top eight of the Presidents Cup standings (he's now 16th) and has not ruled out considering himself for one of the four captain's picks.
Woods (United States) and fellow golf great Ernie Els (Internationals) were earlier this year announced as captains for the biennial event, to be held in Melbourne next December. "We've got a few meetings scheduled in today, try to get a better plan going forward, so that we can get the best that we can at the Hero as well as getting everyone here from the Bahamas to this tournament rested, get them prepared and get them ready to play". Many on the US team played the Australian Open in Adelaide that year the week prior to the Presidents Cup.
"It was late in the year and we didn't have the wrap-around schedule that we have now", the 42-year-old said. That's what we learned in '98, the guys weren't competitive, they had shut it down.
"I'm going to have to defer a lot of information to my vice captains and get a lot of their opinions, whether or not I can play and do both roles", Woods said.
Woods, who claimed his 80th career PGA Tour victory in September, is in Melbourne on a promotional trip for next year's competition.
Merely 48 hours before the start of the Presidents Cup - and Woods said he needed to ensure they would still be fresh.
But 14-time Major victor Woods has declared he will accept the role of playing skipper - which has happened just once - if he is to earn automatic qualification for what will be a star-studded American team. "Obviously we have a lot of guys in their 20s that have made the last couple teams", Woods said in a press conference Thursday.
"We've got (to) try and get the best field we can at the (World Challenge)".
Only Hale Irwin has played the Presidents Cup as a captain when he performed dual roles for the U.S.in the inaugural 1994 event.
"I don't know if I'll be a part of that conversation either way, as a player, but as a captain, yeah, I'll be a part of it". "Jim (Furyk) thought my role was better being focused on playing".
"If not, then myself and my vice-captains are going to have to figure out as well as the other top eight players who are the next four guys that will be best served to be part of this team".
Woods said he didn't think Royal Melbourne had changed much in the seven years since he last visited Australia.
Woods said this past Ryder Cup - where he was both a player and a vice captain - gave him a glimpse of his challenges ahead. "It's one of the most unique courses you can play; it's so short, so fast and so tricky".
