The rules then were for a player from each team to have his name placed in an envelope, and they would play sudden-death to decide the outcome of the Presidents Cup.

Els, a four-time major victor, takes over from Nick Price who has guided the Internationals at the last three Presidents Cups.

South African Ernie Els will be captain of the global team for next year's Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia, a source told Reuters on Monday.

The duo famously dueled at the 2003 event in South Africa in a playoff, tying for three holes before darkness intervened and the match was called, with both teams agreeing to share the cup.


Els, a four-time major victor, takes over from Nick Price who has guided the Internationals at the last three Presidents Cups, including previous year when the United States romped to a 19-11 victory on home soil at Liberty National in New Jersey. The International team's only victory was in 1998 at Royal Melbourne. He could potentially be a playing captain given how well he's hitting it right now and the fact that he's finished in the top 15 in each of his last two PGA Tour starts. Els had to make from 6 feet to match him.

Whilst Els might be a logical choice to be the next worldwide team captain, Woods' anticipated appointment comes as more of a surprise, not least because he will be only 43 by the time the match takes place in Melbourne next year.

Woods will follow Fred Couples, Jay Haas and Steve Stricker as captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team. The Presidents Cup has been reduced to 30 matches over four days, and the format is not likely to change for the next one. Hale Irwin is the only playing captain in the Presidents Cup, at the inaugural matches in 1994.
