After months of speculation and team-selection chatter, the Presidents Cup is upon us.
U.S. Presidents Cup captain Tiger Woods ended considerable speculation last month when he chose himself as one of his four captain’s picks, along with Gary Woodland, Patrick Reed and Tony Finau.
Rickie Fowler then became a late addition when Brooks Koepka announced Nov. 20 that he would be unable to play because of a knee injury.
Woods and the U.S. team will take on Ernie Els and the Internationals in the 13th edition of the Presidents Cup, to be held Dec. 9-15 at Royal Melbourne in Australia.
