Australian Geoff Ogilvy has won the last automatic spot in the International team for the Presidents Cup by finishing third at the BMW Championship. Former world number 5 David Toms finished 10th to take the final spot in the United States team.
The ninth Presidents Cup will take place in Melbourne in November. Team USA will go head to head with the Internationals in a Ryder Cup style format.
The Internationals will be captained by Australian Greg Norman. Norman’s squad will be made up of fellow Australians Jason Day, Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy. South Africans Charl Schwartzel, Retief Goosen and Ernie Els, South Koreans KJ Choi, Kim Kyung-tae and Yang Yong-Eun plus Japan's Ryo Ishikawa.
Norman will also make two captain's picks on the 27th September.
America’s line-up will consist of Matt Kuchar, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Webb Simpson, Nick Watney, Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Hunter Mahan and Toms.
US captain Fred Couples has already named Tiger Woods as one of his captains picks. The decision sparked criticism as Wood’s has not won a tournament since November 2009. “The majority of the people I talk to liked the pick and a handful don't," said Couples ahead of the four-day event at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club.
"Tiger was in the heat of battle in Augusta [and] almost won there. He has done everything I asked him to do and so I told him the reason I picked him early was there was some things I needed him to do"
"I talk to Tiger a lot and I know he is working hard. I am counting on him to play well in Australia. We win by several guys playing well. We don't need everyone playing incredible golf."
It has been announced that the Internationals will wear golf clothing from the Greg Norman Collection.
