U.S. captain Woods chooses Woods to play in Presidents Cup

Woods and Reed were beaten in both sessions they played together in Paris

Woods was introduced as captain in March 2018, when he was just returning from a fourth surgery on his lower back. He has won three times since then, including his 15th major when he won the Masters in April.

"I was just trying to hang on to the coattails and see how far I could go", said the 23-year-old Scot about playing alongside Reed.

The decision was hardly a surprise.

United States captain Tiger Woods selected himself as a member of the star-studded golf team that will take on an International Team at December's Presidents Cup in Australia.

Woods will play in his ninth Presidents Cup, while Reed - who missed out on automatic qualification for the US team - will appear for a third time. He is No. 6 in the world ranking. Koepka had stem cell treatment in his left knee after the Tour Championship, and that injured the knee while bracing himself after he slipped on a wet piece of cement in the CJ Cup.

If Koepka is unable to play, Woods can choose any player to replace him but offered no details Thursday as to who a replacement might be.

Woods said he would rely on help from assistant captains Steve Stricker, Fred Couples and Zach Johnson to keep the United States on track.

While his improved play will certainly be a boost, Woods said it's Reed's energy in global competitions that can really make a difference.

"Freddie was pretty ardent", Woods said.

"This is a person that is as fiery as they come and he's bleeding red, white and blue and he will do anything to get points for you, and that's what we want", Woods said. "I got back to him after Japan".

Everyone is required to play in at least one match ahead of the Sunday singles, meaning Woods only has to play twice. He said he could play more depending on what the team needs.

The rest of the USA team is Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas, Matt Kuchar, Patrick Cantlay and Webb Simpson. Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth were among the golfers who weren't chosen this year after playing in the 2017 Presidents Cup. Ernie Els filled out his worldwide team on Wednesday and has six newcomers. The other golfers on the global team are Adam Hadwin of Canada, Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa, Abraham Ancer of Mexico, Haotong Li of China, Cheng-tsung Pan of Chinese Taipei, Sung-jae Im of South Korea and Joaquin Niemann of Chile.

"To be in a position to go out and get a decide on, specially from captain Woods, was astounding".

Woods will serve as player and captain for US in Melbourne after revealing his four selections on Thursday. Reed, 29, has two previous Presidents Cup appearances.
