2019 Cup President: Tiger Woods returns to open singles title line

MELBOURNE, Australia – US captain Tiger Woods will try to lead from the front after pulling himself out first for Sunday’s singles as seven-time defending champions fight to maintain their crown against the President’s Cup.

The United States start their final day with the 10-8 international race after a dramatic finish to Saturday’s action at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

Playing captain Woods kept himself from both four-ball mornings and late-afternoon squares as an international Ernie Els’ team maintained its lead despite a US rally.

But with the US – which threatened to sweep the foursome before the internationals won back – looking at the eighth straight title, Woods will open the singles against Abraham Ancer.

Sunday Singles @ PresidentsButton racing placement is set.

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

Controversial US player Patrick Reed will face C.T. Pan in the third race, but without caddy Kessler Karain, who has been banned after a crash with a fan on Saturday.

Australian Marc Leishman will be the final international to finish after being shot against Rickie Fowler as the challengers aim for a first Preşedinti Cup triumph since 1998.

Leishman has confidence and momentum as he and Ancer raced impressively from 5 to 10 holes to halve their match against Fowler and Justin Thomas in Saturday’s quarters.
