Sydney, Nov 16: Tiger Woods will play against Australian Adam Scott and his ex-caddie Steve Williams in a promoter’s dream match-up on the opening day of the Presidents Cup on Thursday.
The clash will guarantee worldwide interest due to the recent controversial comments made by Scott’s caddie Williams about his former employer Woods who sacked him earlier this year.
Woods will team up with Steve Stricker for the United States against the International team’s Scott and South Korean KJ Choi in the final match of the opening day’s foursomes at Royal Melbourne.
International team captain Greg Norman and his US counterpart Fred Couples insisted there was no premeditation about arranging that clash which emerged from Wednesday’s draw, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.
“It’s great for the tournament – it needed to be done,” said Norman. (ANI)
