Passions are running high as the Presidents Cup is approaching. International Presidents Cup captain Greg Norman said that if he were to pick players for the U.S. team instead of Fred Couples, he wouldn’t have chosen Tiger Woods.
Norman also said that Woods would hardly win another major and that this year’s PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley Keegan Bradley would have been a much better choice.
When given the choice, Fred Couples picked FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas and Tiger Woods who has not won a single tournament in two years and recently dropped from the top 50. Couples said that Bradley would make the team only if Steve Stricker would not be able to play because of his neck injury.
Norman shared his opinion on the captain’s picks during his press conference at Tiburon Golf Club. The Australian golfer was promoting his Shark Shootout tournament where Bradley will also play.
Norman’s interview will probably make the Presidents Cup struggle even more dramatic. If the Aussie is right Tiger Woods will slow down the U.S. team, the International squad’s chances to win will increase. Perhaps, Greg Norman and Co will manage to break the winless drought and finally claim the first victory since the win in 1998.
