Leaders named: Nick Price, Jay Haas named Presidents Cup team captains

Zimbabwean Price will skipper the Internationals for the second tournament in a row, having led the team at Muirfield Village last year.

As for Haas, he steps up from his role as USA assistant to captain the reigning champions, replacing Fred Couples, who played a leading role in the team’s run of five consecutive Presidents Cup triumphs.

Couples will still be involved, however, after accepting an assistant captain’s role, while South Korea’s KJ Choi will be vice-captain for the Internationals.

The 11th Presidents Cup will be held at South Korea’s Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in October next year – the first time the event will be held in Asia.

“Nick Price and Jay Haas bring tremendous experience, enthusiasm and knowledge to The Presidents Cup and were obvious choices to captain the International and US Teams as we take the event to Asia in less than 16 months,” said PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem.
