South Korea's Sang-moon Bae will turn out at the Presidents Cup on home soil after being named as one of International skipper Nick Price's two captain's picks.
Bae was not one of the 10 players who qualified automatically for next month's event, but together with Australian Steve Bowditch was included by Price to complete the 12-man team.
"I'm really happy now I can play the Presidents Cup this year,"commented Bae. "I will go to military service after the Presidents Cup, actually after this season. I'm really honoured to play, and I think we have a lot of chance to win this tournament. That is my home country and I'm really excited to play."
United States captain Jay Haas selected experienced campaigner Phil Mickelson, and his son, Bill Haas, as his two picks.
"If anyone deserves a pick, it's Phil Mickelson. The guys on the team trust him. Phil was an overwhelming choice to be a pick," said Jay Haas.
He added: "I feel like Bill deserves this, he's had a wonderful year and to be honest I would have picked the eleventh person regardless.'
The International team comprises of the top 10 players from outside of America and Europe, while the USA team is made up the ten Americans who scored the most FedExCup points between September 13, 2013, and September 7, 2015, with points earned in 2015 doubled.
