Hadwin will make the trip to Royal Melbourne in Australia next month to play in the biennial event.

The Internationals will tee off at Australia's Royal Melbourne from December 12-15 against a star-studded U.S. captained by Woods, who is expected to pick himself when he unveils his four wildcards on Friday.

"But it's one that I've been looking forward to for a long time".

"It means so much to me to be a part of this team, and I'm going to do everything I can to help the US bring home the Presidents Cup".

The former World No.1 will be making his ninth Presidents Cup appearance.

The reigning Masters champion Woods, 43, also moved to number seven on the world rankings after his record equaling 82nd US PGA tour victory in japan last week.

Higher ranked and with stronger Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup credentials than Fowler, Reed nevertheless has a reputation as a somewhat self-centred and disruptive figure.

"I'm so happy to be chosen as a captain's pick".

Woods, though, said he only made his mind up after his latest win, having been sidelined since late August after undergoing arthroscopic left knee surgery to fix minor cartilage damage.

Hadwin knew he needed to get off to a good start this fall to get captain Els' attention and he did just that finishing runner-up at the Safeway Open in September and then following it up with a T4 in Las Vegas at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. "He's very accurate and I feel like the way we execute our short game is similar".

They are Abraham Ancer of Mexico, Chinese Taipei's C.T. Pan, China's Li Haotong and Cameron Smith of Australia.

Yesterday, global team captain Ernie Els announced his four captains picks as 32-year-old Canadian Adam Hadwin, 21 year-old Korean Sungjae Kim, 20-year-old Chilean Joaquin Niemann and former world number one Jason Day.

Els believes Woods, the world No. 7, will select himself for a wildcard after the 15-time major victor won the Zozo Championship in Japan late last month.

"It's weird talking about yourself in the third person", the 15-time major champion said after reeling off a little of his bio to the media conference.

The Internationals have won only once in the event's 25-year history - in Melbourne in 1998, captained by the late Peter Thomson.

Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Cantlay, Webb Simpson and Matt Kuchar all earned automatic spots as the top point-getting Americans. Both were in the team at the end of an 19-11 rout at Liberty National in the last edition in 2017.
