It will be a surprise to nobody that Tiger Woods provided the early highlight of the Presidents Cup.
The 15-time Major champion selected himself as a captain’s pick for this week’s matches, and then put himself out in the first match alongside partner Justin Thomas in their four-ball match.
Tiger and JT gave Marc Leishman and Joaquin Niemann a touch-up on the opening day, winning Team USA’s only point, 4&3, and Tiger punctuated that lead with the highlight of Day 1 thus far with a classic Tiger Woods moment.
A bit short-sided at the fifth hole, Tiger faced a chip shot that he might have thought was makable. And he would’ve thought correctly:

The celebration made the highlight even better – pulling a Jordan Spieth ala Royal Birkdale by telling JT to “Go Get That!” out of the hole. The birdie put Tiger and JT back to 2 up for the time.
