The 2019 Presidents Cup will be the 13th edition of the tournament. The competition returns to the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, which held the 1998 and 2011 editions. Tiger Woods captains the United States team, with Ernie Els captaining the International team.
“Putting things in boxes has always been something I’ve been good at,” said Woods.
“Because when I’m out there playing, I’ve got to get into my little world and take care of that. When I’m off the course, I’ve got a lot of other responsibilities.
“The only difference is [this week] it will be I’m responsible for 11 other guys.
“I won’t be able to see them play practice rounds because I’ll be playing a practice round.
“So that will be a little bit different and I’m going to have to rely on what my guys say and what my vice-captains say and get a feel for what’s going on.”
