Tiger Trying To Play His Way Onto Presidents Cup Team He Can't Actually Make This Week

Ok so now we know he’s more of the Fred Couples, laissez faire, positive figurehead Captain than say, the Azinger details guy. But hey, he’s Tiger Woods and the Presidents Cup is not until December.

Mathmatically eliminated from making the 2019 team on points—even with a win this week—Captain Woods talked about trying to play his way on via the BMW Championship.

“I’m trying like hell to make the team on my own. To just be part of the core group of guys. Obviously, I have some work to do. I gotta play well this week to make that happen. But if not, it’s going to come down to the top eight guys, myself and my vice captains for who are the next four slots. Whether that’s me and three other guys, or it’s four other guys, either way, I’m going to Australia, whether I’ll be playing or not.”

He has until October to make the four captain’s picks, which will have to include picking himself if he plans to be the first playing captain since Hale Irwin.
