The 2019 Presidents Cup is finally here, and playing captain Tiger Woods is leading things off with his fourball partner Justin Thomas during opening-day action on Thursday (Wednesday here in the United States). That duo is taking on Joaquin Niemann and Marc Leishman in the first of five matches at Royal Melbourne, all of which are now off and running on a fast and furious course.

The heavily-favored American squad should roll for the eighth-straight Presidents Cup, but if they do, it won’t be without distraction. Patrick Reed — playing with Webb Simpson on Day 1 — has been a lightning rod for criticism (by the International team) and support (by his own team) following a sketchy rules incident at last week’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. The result should be great drama for all four days of this Presidents Cup at one of the best courses on the planet with a raucous home Australian crowd ready to roll.
