Patrick Reed ready to prove himself as Presidents Cup captain's pick

Woods and Reed were beaten in both sessions they played together in Paris

Woods will be the first playing captain since Hale Irwin led the Americans to a 20-12 win in the inaugural event in Virginia in 1994 and recently issued a timely reminder of his class by winning the Zozo Championship in Japan.

If Koepka is unable to play, Woods can choose any player to replace him but offered no details Thursday as to who a replacement might be. "I feel like I've played some solid golf".

The decision was hardly a surprise.

Reed was told in a phone call the night before due to the time difference between America and Turkey, where he's playing at the Turkish Airlines Open, but he admits he'd known he was in the team for around a week.

Tiger Woods has named himself as a Presidents Cup captain's acquire to pause the USA crew who will face the Internationals at Royal Melbourne subsequent month.

The Americans boast world number one and four-time major victor Brooks Koepka, along with fellow top-10 players Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele and Bryson DeChambeau plus Webb Simpson (ranked 11) and Matt Kuchar (22). Fowler has not played since November's Tour Championship. He also left open the option of adding an assistant captain now that he'll be playing. Woods said he plans to consult the players and have the captain's picks be more like team picks.

"It's just golf, you have your highs and lows, and when you're in your lows, champions figure out a way to get out of it and bounce right back up". Sooooo, the question here isn't his match play chops which are second to none, but whether he will get picked over more amiable contenders.

The rest of the United States team is Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas, Matt Kuchar, Patrick Cantlay and Webb Simpson. Both will make their Presidents Cup debuts.

"He's made. nine Cups and he's played in Australia twice in the Presidents Cup, so this will be his third appearance as a player. And I catch it gripping talking in the third person".
