SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) -- Fred Couples has told Tiger Woods that he decided to add him to the 12-member Presidents Cup team.
Couples, the Presidents Cup co-captain along with Jay Haas, has taken the drama out of the debate over whether Woods would be on the team, saying Thursday it's already a done deal.
Ten players automatically qualify for the team based on points accumulated over the past two years. Couples is then given two captain's picks to round out his squad, which will compete at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia Nov. 14-20.
