Ernie Els filled out an International team loaded with newcomers by choosing two more Presidents Cup rookies with his captain’s picks Wednesday night.
U.S. captain Tiger Woods announces his wild-card selections on Thursday, and he could use one of them on himself. There has not been a playing-captain in the Presidents Cup since Hale Irwin in the inaugural event in 1994.
The Presidents Cup is Dec. 12-15 at Royal Melbourne in Australia, where the International team recorded its only victory in 1998. The American won at Royal Melbourne in 2011.
