The picks are in for The Presidents Cup

Reason to celebrate: The Tour Championship, the Fed Ex Cup, 11.4 million dollars, and a selection to the U.S. team.
United States captain Fred Couples has selected Fed Ex Cup champion Bill Haas to join Tiger Woods as the final two members of the American squad. Greg Norman, the International captain, has chosen Australians Aaron Baddely and Robert Allenby as his last two members.

Haas, coming off his huge win Sunday at The Tour Championship in combination with winning the Fed Ex Cup had to put him over the top for the final pick. It just wouldn't have made sense for Couples not to select him after his performance.

As for Norman, since the Cup will be played in Australia, it made sense for him to add two more Aussies, joining Adam Scott and Jason Day down under.

The Presidents Cup week is set to begin November 14th in Melbourne.
