No. 17 Adam Scot will be headlining the International Team along with his mates no. 20 Hideki Matsuyama, no.27 Marc Leishman.Veteran captain Ernie Els will be leading the team in the competition.
A fun fact to know is that Ernie Els did not elect himself to play as Woods did. The other good fact for the International Team fans is that Scott will be reprising his role to participate in the event as the International squad side. The upcoming Presidents Cup 2019 will be his ninth time of participation. Scott is the only Presidents Cup Participant who competed back in 2011, the second, as well as the most recent time.
If you are on the International Team, you’ll surely know that the chance of the team is a bit struggling. In the 25 years history of the prestigious Presidents Cup, the International team only managed to win once.
Their victory happened twenty one years ago,when the Royal Melbourne was the host of the competition. since the victory of the International team, the US team has been dominating the competition. the US team wouldn’t let the International team to take over. the closer achievement for the International team happened fifteen years ago in the Presidents Cup 2003. it was the first and only tie result in the Presidents Cup history.
The numerous experts and sports enthusiasts agree that the US team has more chances to win the competition. Some experts are even sure that the US team will remain in the possession of the cup. While Mickelson won’t be in the Australia representation for the first time in 25 years, it will just make the US team less bumpy. International Team supporters should be prepared for the worse since many are sure that the US team will finish the competition with the prestigious title as usual.
The picks of Els as the captain of the International team is interesting. He has philosophical choice to make. He is brave enough to choose younger players to join with the international team. Nt to mention that he can stick to the formula which won’t work anyway. Well, it is consistently bad. But let’s not neglect the fact that Tiger is going to leave ou massive name and big talent so it can contribute a chance a little bit for the International Team.
Although the chance might be small, the International Team indeed has what they need to be the champion of the competition. Guess we just need to wait and see if the winning can happen again. Even the slightest chance is important disposition for the rooters and the team.
