Fred Couples, president of the 2011 U.S. Presidents cup team named Tiger Woods as one of his captain picks today. Couples had until August 26th to make his choices but decided to go ahead and name Woods as a member of this years team despite his poor play as of late.

"I've told him that he's going to be on the team," Couples said just before a practice round preparing for the Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. "There is no reason for me to wait till Sept. 26 to pick Tiger. He's the best player in the world forever."

Couples will recieve some critisim for making this pick but who can really blame him. It's no secret that Woods and Couples are freinds but I am of the opinion that Couples has faith that Woods will provide a spark to this years team and despite his recent play, Tiger will perform well and help the U.S. Team win. Kudos to Fred Couple for making a a hard and somewhat unpopular decision.


  1. It is great to see that Fred Couples has selected Tiger for the US Presidents Cup Team. I believe he will make a great showing in the competition.

  2. Thanks so much for visiting the GolfWiz Blog. I agree with you 100% Tiger was a great choice.
