The 13th biennial Presidents Cup is here for 2019 as the United States team is pitted against the International team at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Black Rock, Australia from Dec. 12-15.
Over a period of four days, the two teams will compete using a match play scoring system. This year, the teams are captained by Tiger Woods and Ernie Els for the U.S. and International teams respectively.
The U.S. is 10-1-1 all time in the Presidents Cup with the lone loss coming in 1998 at Royal Melbourne. Unlike the Ryder Cup, which pits the U.S. against Europe, the Presidents Cup features an international team assembled with players from non-European nations around the world.
In 2017, the Presidents Cup was held at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J., where the U.S. won its sixth straight tournament 19-11.
Here is all of the information for how to watch the 2019 Presidents Cup, including a full TV schedule, tee times for Tiger Woods, pairings and more.
