A few weeks ago, Presidents Cup and the PGA Tour announced the captains for the U.S. and International teams. These captains will represent their teams at The Royal Melbourne Golf Course in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Tiger Woods and Ernie Els will both be first-time captains, but are the most experienced when it comes to competition at the Presidents Cup. In 2003, these golfers competed in a dramatic sudden-death playoff during the Presidents Cup in South Africa, where the two teams shared the cup due to a tie.
Despite a resilient effort until the very end by the International Team, the US Team won by a large margin at this year’s Presidents Cup, leading the tournament from the very beginning.

Although they trailed the entire tournament, the International Team did not give up the fight until late Sunday afternoon when Daniel Berger clinched the final ½ point to secure the win for Team USA.
