Woods' US team dominated Presidents Cup won record 11 titles

USA beat International team 16-14 won the Presidents Cup 2019.





Tiger Woods' US team dominated on the last day as they beat the International team 16-14 in Melbourne to win an eighth successive Presidents Cup with overall 11th titles.


It's an astonishing year for Tiger Woods as lifted his 15th major at the Masters by playing and leading his U.S. team as Captain to another victory in the Presidents Cup 2019 winners on Sunday at Royal Melbourne, Australia.



USA beat International team 16-14 won the Presidents Cup 2019.




 The first playing captain in 25 years, he opened the 12 singles matches by beating Abraham Ancer to set the Presidents Cup record with his 27th match victory, and set the tone for the rest of his team.

 Els fashioned the youngest International team from a record nine countries from everywhere outside Europe and took a 10-8 lead into the final day, the first time it had the edge in 16 years.


 The only International victory was in 1998 at Royal Melbourne, and several players from that team came to Australia this week to conjure up good vibes. It only worked for so long.


The Americans won the singles session for the first time since 2009. Most years, their lead was so big it wasn’t critical. This time it was. They hadn’t trailed since 2003 in South Africa, the year of the tie.




What US Captain Tiger Wood said.?



“It was really cool being part of this team and having Tiger as captain,” Kuchar said. “We had a roomful of some of the greatest golfers in the world, and when he speaks, we listen. I think all of us will look back and have these pictures hanging on our walls and say, ‘We played for and alongside Tiger Woods, the greatest player ever.’ It was awesome.”


What International captain Ernie Els said.?


“I followed a plan, and it didn’t quite work out, but we came damn close,” Els said. “If you compare our team on paper with other teams in other sport, you would have laughed us out of the building. But we gave it a hell of a go and we came mightily close to winning and upsetting one of the greatest golf teams of all time.”
