The 2013 Presidents Cup teams have been officially announced with Nick Price and Fred Couples announcing their captain’s picks earlier this morning.
Nick Price announced Marc Leishman would be a part of the International Team for the 2013 Presidents Cup this morning but he surprised everyone when he named Zimbabwe’s Brendon de Jonge as his second pick to complete the 12-man team to compete at Muirfield Village from October 3 – 6, 2013.
Fred Couples selections weren’t as surprising opting for world number 26 and 20-year-old Jordan Spieth who became the youngest PGA Tour winner since 1931 earlier this year.
The first ten players for each team were automatically earlier this week based on world rankings for the International Team and Presidents Cup points for the US Team. The US Team looks power packed once again with five major winners among the 12. The International Team have four major winners of their own but it is also filled with golfers who will play their first Presidents Cup such as Japan’s Hideki Matsumyama and Canada’s Graham DeLaet.
