Here is a portion of the PGA Tour press release announcing the selections of Nick Price and Fred Couples to captain the Presidents Cup teams in 2013.
At a press conference today at Muirfield Village Golf Club, site of this week’s Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance and next year’s Presidents Cup, PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem announced that Fred Couples and Nick Price will serve as captains of the U.S. and International Teams, respectively, for The Presidents Cup 2013 in Dublin, Ohio. Couples won the Memorial Tournament in 1998 and in the field this week as a sponsor’s exemption.
The Presidents Cup 2013 will be held Sept. 30-Oct. 6 when the biennial competition returns to the United States and Muirfield Village Golf Club becomes the third U.S. golf course to host the prestigious match-play competition, joining Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Prince William County, Va., (1994, 1996, 2000) and Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco, Calif., (2009). Muirfield Village is the first club in the world to host three of golf’s most prestigious international team competitions—The Presidents Cup, Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup. The Americans hold a 7-1-1 record in the competition, with Couples leading the U.S. Team to victory in 2009 and 2011.
