US captain Woods will play in Presidents Cup

Ernie Els says Captain Tiger Woods will pick Tiger Woods'I don't think he's got any choice

He picked Gary Woodland, Tony Finau, and Patrick Reed (sorry, Ricky Fowler) before using the final pick on a guy who has 82 career wins and is the defending Masters champion.

"It's going to be hard (to be playing captain), but I have unbelievable assistants - three great minds to help me out when I'm playing", he said.

Woods was a big influence on Finau's developing a love for golf as he grew up in Salt Lake City's Rose Park neighborhood.

The Internationals will field six debutants at next month's Presidents Cup, with Ernie Els naming rookies Im Sung-jae and Joaquin Niemann among his captain's picks to take on the United States at Royal Melbourne.

Day's selection makes it four Australians in the 12-player team as he joins the already-qualified Cameron Smith, making his first appearance, plus seasoned compatriots Marc Leishman and Adam Scott.

Tiger Woods has named himself as one of four "captain's picks" for the United States team set to take on an global side at the President's Cup, taking place in Melbourne in December.

Tiger Woods will be a playing captain when he leads the United States against an worldwide team in the Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne next month.

Day's inclusion brings Australia's number of participants up to four in the worldwide team, which is the youngest and most diverse in the cup's 13-event, 25-year history.

Els also added that he would not have been surprised if Woods had picked himself.

The three men threw the bodies overboard and sailed towards Kimchaek to flee to the Chagang province near the Chinese border. South Korea's Defense Ministry said adjusted drills will take place in the coming weeks.

Woods showed he was in decent form by winning the Zozo Championship in Japan last month.

And still to be determined is whether PGA champion Brooks Koepka, the No. 1 player in the world, will be ready to go.

Everyone is required to play in at least one match ahead of the Sunday singles, meaning Woods only has to play twice. "Rickie is a good friend of mine, and I've known him for a long time, I kept it short and quick, there was no reason to make it a lengthy conversation", Woods said. "'You're on the team, quit being stupid.' At the time, I haven't even swung a club", Woods said.

"It's weird talking about yourself in the third person", the 15-time major champion said after reeling off a little of his bio to the media conference.

With Woods picking himself, the powerhouse United States of America team will have seven of the world's top ten on-course in Melbourne. "He'll do anything to get a point for you".

The Americans boast world No.1 and four-time major victor Brooks Koepka, along with fellow top-10 players Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele and Bryson DeChambeau plus Webb Simpson (ranked 11) and Matt Kuchar (22).

"I'm really excited by the new blood that's come in and we have experience too".

"There's always that chance, but let's just focus on coming to Royal Melbourne and this competition", he said.
