Utah’s Tony Finau is eager to play in the Presidents Cup for Tiger Woods’ team

Tony Finau’s experience in the 2018 Ryder Cup drove his efforts to make the U.S. team for this week’s Presidents Cup, and his performance in Paris is a big reason why Tiger Woods picked him to play in Australia.

The Salt Lake City native and Lehi resident is the first homegrown Utahn to play in either international golf event. Finau is part of the 12-man American team that will challenge the International squad at Royal Melbourne Golf Club, beginning Wednesday (Thursday in Australia).

Finau was one of Tiger Woods’ four captain’s picks, and being part of Woods’ team is rewarding to him.
