No hard feelings - Captain Woods plumps for ‘Captain America’

       Patrick Reed was delighted to be named as one of Tiger Woods captain's picks for Team USA's Presidents Cup sid

"With the new rules, I just have to play one match prior to the singles", he added.

Woods's appearance comes two years after he served as an assistant to United States captain Steve Stricker at Liberty National in New Jersey.

Els believes Woods, the world number seven, will select himself for a wildcard after the 15-time major victor won the Zozo Championship in Japan late last month.

"It's going to be a lot of work, but something I've been looking forward to for a long time", Woods said.

Woods said those three had strong thoughts on him playing, especially Couples. Woods also left off Rickie Fowler, who got married and has not played since the Tour Championship; and Kevin Kisner, who is 16-5-3 in match play, including a victory and runner-up in the last two Dell Match Play events.

Australia's former world number one Day will feature in his fifth Presidents Cup despite having seen his ranking slip to 29th, while world number 44 Hadwin will make his second appearance after his debut in 2017.

Woods not only is the Masters champion, just two weeks ago he tied the PGA Tour record with his 82nd career victory at the Zozo Championship in Japan. "We want points, and he's a great team guy in there because he knows that when he goes out on that golf course, he's going to give you absolutely everything he has, and that's admirable".

"It means so much to me to be a part of this team and I'm going to do everything I can to help the U.S. bring home the Presidents Cup", Reed said.


Woods did not say what kind of contingency plan he had if Koepka couldn't make it.

"Freddie was pretty ardent".

Reed was told in a phone call the night before due to the time difference between America and Turkey, where he's playing at the Turkish Airlines Open, but he admits he'd known he was in the team for around a week.

The top eight American golfers who were already selected prior to Woods's selections were PGA Championship victor Brooks Koepka of West Palm Beach, FL; Justin Thomas of Louisville, KY; Dustin Johnson of Columbia, SC; Patrick Cantlay of Long Beach, CA; Xander Schauffele of San Diego, CA; Webb Simpson of Raleigh, NC; Matt Kuchar of Winter Park, FL and Bryson DeChambeau of Modesto, CA. "'You're on the team, quit being stupid.' At the time, I haven't even swung a club", Woods said.

Reed made the team anyway, as he was one of Woods' captain's picks for the team - a designation he said has only motivated him more for the biennial event next month at Royal Melbourne in Australia. Cantlay, Schauffele and Woodland are the only players who have never competed in a Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup.

Royal Melbourne is where the worldwide team had its only victory in 1998.

Woods announced Finau as his first at-large pick.
