The good, the bad and the painful: A history of Tiger Woods at Liberty National

The good, the bad and the painful: A history of Tiger Woods at Liberty National When Woods arrives at the Northern Trust this week, it will have been nearly a decade since he first played Liberty National. It's been quite a journey since.

– Tiger Woods was named the next U.S. Presidents Cup Captain on Tuesday, just two days after his best PGA TOUR finish in nearly five years. The Captain ’ s role involves much more than making picks and setting lineups. Juggling those myriad duties while properly preparing to play an

Tiger Woods will make four captain ' s picks for the 2019 Presidents Cup . There may be even more spots available on the U.S. side as Phil and Bubba age out . Reed has certainly blown up his chances to be a captain ’ s pick , and given that he’s winless since the ’18 Masters it’s entirely possible he won’t

The 43-year-old was just outside the threshold for an automatic spot on the team himself, coming in at No. 13, and could opt to add himself to the team if he wants. While he hasn’t ruled that out, Woods said he plans to consult with his entire team before making a decision on filling the remaining four slots.

“My job as the captain is to put together the best team possible and try and put together the best 12 guys. That’s what I’m trying to do,” Woods said on Monday. “We’ll be going through the whole process of having open communication with our top eight guys and my vice captains.

“That is something that we will certainly talk about, whether I should play or not play. Ultimately it’s going to be my call whether I do play or not as the captain. But I want to have all of their opinions before that decision is made.”

Presidents Cup and PGA TOUR officials today announced Ernie Els and Tiger Woods as captains of the International and U. S . Teams, respectively While both will be first-time captains at the event, the two are the most experienced captains in terms of Presidents Cup competition and were the primary

Woods did not rule out lobbying for himself as one of four captain ’ s picks if he is not an automatic qualifier for the U.S. team. The Presidents Cup standings are determined based on FedEx Cup points won – using a weighted scale – since the 2017 BMW Championship.

Woods, who failed to reach the Tour Championship next week at East Lake in Atlanta, is set to play in just one PGA Tour event this fall — the Tour’s inaugural event in Japan in October. He’s still planning to play in plenty of unofficial events, however, in an attempt to stay loose.

Depending on how that goes, the 81-time Tour winner may elect to pick himself with one of the four captain’s picks.

“I think it has to do with a lot of my competitions I'm going to have down here,” Woods said. “I'll be playing with a lot of the guys here. They're going to be getting ready for some of the fall events, we'll have some matches, and that's always fun because we're able to talk trash and have a great time and try and get in one another's pockets.

“That will be something that I will definitely rely on, and obviously the event in Japan will be a big deal.”

Woods urges players to stay loose ahead of Australia

Woods isn’t just attempting to stay busy himself on the course this fall, when the PGA Tour season is relatively quiet. He’s urging the rest of the team to do so, too.

Tiger Woods might have an important choice to make as the captain of next year’ s Presidents Cup . He will be entrusted with four picks to round out the 12-member US Team, and one of those selections might be staring at him in the mirror. Tiger Woods and Ernie Els have been named Presidents Cup

Woods said he sat down with the top 20 players before The Northern Trust at Liberty National Golf Club in New Jersey earlier this month to talk about the Presidents Cup, and urged them to keep competing before the team heads over to Australia in December. After all, the International team’s only victory over the United States in the biennial event came at Royal Melbourne in 1998.

“We talked about that, how important it is to be committed to the team and to the event and to each other, and that means playing and being prepared,” Woods said. “The only time that we have ever lost a Cup was in Australia, and quite frankly, some of the guys didn't play or practice that much. It was our off-season, and we got beat pretty badly.

“It's something that I try to enforce to the guys, reinforce to the guys, that it is important to be solid, be fresh, and to be sharp because we're going into — we're going overseas and we're playing against an amazing team, and it's on their soil.”

Woods didn’t give a number of tournaments he wants his team playing in ahead of time. The Tour only has 11 official events before December, too, five of which are outside of the United States. Only one of them — the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, China, — is likely to draw a true competitive field, too.
