PRESIDENTIAL AFFAIR The final standings of the 2015 Presidents Cup have been decided. Here are the players who'll be teeing it up at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in Korea next month... NEWfaces and some familiar ones missing. That’s the recurring theme to both sides contesting the 11th Presidents Cup in South Korea next month after the International and American sides were finalised this week. The Deutsche Bank Championship marked the end of the qualification period for both squads. Gaining automatic starts for the Internationals were: Jason Day (AUS), Louis Oosthuizen (RSA), Adam Scott (AUS), Hideki Matsuyama (JPN), Branden Grace (RSA), Marc Leishman (AUS), Anirban Lahiri (IND), Charl Schwartzel (RSA), Thongchai Jaidee (THA) and Danny Lee (NZ). Internationals captain Nick Price then rounded out his line-up this morning by choosing Steven Bowditch (AUS) and Sang-Moon Bae (KOR) as captain’s picks. Lahiri and Jaidee will be the first Indian and Thai golfers, respectively, to play in the Presidents Cup, while those two, Lee and the two captain’s picks are the only rookies. The American team includes: Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Jimmy Walker, Zach Johnson, Jim Furyk, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Matt Kuchar and Chris Kirk. US captain Jay Haas selected his son Bill and Phil Mickelson, who has never missed a Presidents Cup, as his two wildcards. While Mickelson was thrown an unexpected lifeline, notably absent from the two line-ups are two other stalwarts of the 21-year-old event. Tiger Woods has played every one since 1998 but finished 122nd in points as the 272nd-best player on the globe. Likewise, Ernie Els has played in all but two Cups yet now ranks 128th in the world and was 27th on the qualifying list for the Internationals. Together, the Internationals have four major titles, 14 Presidents Cup appearances and 25 total match victories. There are also five rookies on the team. Those same numbers for the Americans are 12, 25 and 57, with four newcomers. The Presidents Cup will be held at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in Incheon from October 8 to 11.
