  Tiger Woods may play four matches at Cup Tiger Woods may play up to four matches at next week's Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne.Sources inside the 15-time major winner's camp have suggested he will play up to four matches at Royal Melbourne.

The 2019 Presidents Cup will be held on December 9-15, 2019 , when it returns to the prestigious The Royal Melbourne Golf Club. The return to Victoria, Australia, will mark the third time in the biennial event’s 25-year history the Presidents Cup has been to Melbourne.

Another stellar four-ball display has stretched the Internationals' lead in their pursuit of a first Presidents Cup triumph in 21 years.

United States captain Tiger Woods will attempt to lead from the front after putting himself out first for Sunday's singles as the seven-time defending champions fight to retain their Presidents Cup crown against the Internationals.

The USA head into the final day trailing the Internationals 10-8 following a dramatic ending to Saturday's action at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

Playing captain Woods kept himself out of both the morning four-ball and the afternoon foursomes as Ernie Els' International team preserved their lead, despite a USA rally.

But with the USA - who threatened to sweep the foursomes before the Internationals stormed back - eyeing an eighth straight title, Woods will open the singles against Abraham Ancer in Melbourne.

Tiger Woods played a practice shot on Tuesday at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, host of the 2019 Presidents Cup . Balancing on his left leg, Luke hit a wedge shot that landed on the improvised green as Woods watched intently, leaning on the prosthetic leg as if it were his putter.

Woods has the chance to set the record for most matches won at the Presidents Cup, after the 15-time major champion tied Phil Mickelson with his 26th victory on Friday.

Controversial American Patrick Reed will face C.T. Pan in the third match, but without caddie Kessler Karain - who has been banned following a fan altercation on Saturday.

Australian Marc Leishman will be the final International to tee off after being drawn against Rickie Fowler as the challengers target a first Presidents Cup triumph since 1998.

Leishman has confidence and momentum after he and Ancer sensationally rallied from 5down through 10 holes to halve their match against Fowler and Justin Thomas in Saturday's foursomes.
