When Tiger and Ernie met a couple of kangaroos
As part of the 2019 Presidents Cup announcement, captains Tiger Woods and Ernie Els were asked to do something rather unique.
Several reporters at this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational realised something was up prior to the announcement when they spotted a few kangaroos milling around.

Only when next year’s Presidents Cup was confirmed as taking place in Australia did the presence of the marsupials become clear.
The furry Antipodeans weren’t just for show either – both Woods and Els had to get up close and personal with them!
Melbourne will play host, hence the Kangaroos.

We’re not sure who looks more embarrassed – the couple of kangaroos, or the couple of Presidents Cup captains.
And here’s some footage of the pair hilariously struggling to get to grips with the animals:
