Captain of the U.S. team has said a number of times that he wants the star player Tiger Woods to be on the team playing the Presidents Cup but now Couples has stated that he wants Woods to play a tournament prior to heading off to the Australian Open which takes place in November if he wants to be chosen for the squad.

Woods is just have a difficult time getting off the ground, he missed the cut just last week at the PGA Championship which ended his PGA Tour season and it leaves him with little chance to qualify for the 12 man team. He needs at least two large selections to be made by Couples in the next month if he wants to play on the international squad at Royal Melbourne the week after the Australian Open. Betting lines

At a recent news conference Couples told reporters “I really want him on the team based on my opinion that he’s been the best player for 10 straight years,” “I don’t think you can push him down because he’s not playing maybe as well as 20 other guys that could be picked. A couple of times I’ve been picked for a Presidents Cup or a Ryder Cup, and sometimes that’s just the way it falls.”

Couples has said several times he would pick Woods for the team, regardless of his recent poor form, as long as he is healthy. But on Wednesday, Couples suggested that Woods needs to add a tournament. Sports scores

Couples added “I’ve talked to (Woods’ agent) Mark Steinberg about him playing (other tournaments). We’re going to figure out a way that we can get this done,” “He can’t just show up the week before in Australia. I have made it clear that whoever I picked will be playing the Australian tournament the week before. But I need him to play more than just there. There’s quite a few tournaments after the Tour Championship.”

After his crash at the PGA Woods had indicated that he may not be able to play again until the coming of the Australian Open. He is also not eligible for the playoffs of the PGA tour. How Woods recovers from this is anyone’s guess but Couples has said that if he wants to make the team he will need to play.
