International captain Nick Price’s squad almost pulled off a huge comeback on Sunday in the 2013 Presidents Cup at Muirfield Village Golf Club, but Tiger Woods clinched a U.S. victory on his final hole to put an end to the rally. 2013 marked Price’s first year as a team captain — he’d previously participated in five Presidents Cups as a player — and though the loss was hard to swallow, he hopes to be named a captain again in the future.

Said Price:

This was just a phenomenal week for all of us and I want to congratulate the U.S. team. They played golf that was just incredible to watch. They combined well, but for this team, I would be honored if they ever asked me to be captain of this team again, don’t care where it is (Reuters).

Price also admitted that being a first-time captain was a learning experience:

The hardest part was trying to figure out the pairings. I felt like I didn’t have enough time. It’s the same for Fred [Couples, the U.S. captain], so that’s no excuse. But I think Fred may have had a little experience in that as well ahead of me.

The U.S. is now 8-1-1 in Presidents Cup competitions. The International team will have a shot at securing their second-ever win in 2015.
