Fred Couples on his selection of Tiger Woods to the Presidents Cup Team
Fred Couples still has a lot of game left, and is in San Francisco for the final event of the Champions Tour season and the Charles Schwab Cup at Harding Park. From this event, Captain Couples travels to Australia for the upcoming Presidents Cup Tournament. The top 10 American players get an automatic invitation. Couples then has a pair of picks as captain's choices. Rather than name a player near the top-10, Couples selected the World's 50th rated golfer...Tiger Woods, whose game has deteriorated since his Thanksgiving massacre of his car and subsequent divorce from wife Elin. He showed signs of regaining his previous form at last months Frys.com Open at CordeValle, but Fred Couples believes Tiger will return to form, and got the nod over any number of players who have far surpassed Woods' performance this season.
