Els adds 2 more Presidents Cup rookies with captain's picks
(AP Photo/Ng Han Guan)Ernie Els filled out his International team already loaded with newcomers by choosing two more Presidents Cup rookies with his captain's picks Wednesday night. Day is playing the Presidents Cup for the fifth time, but first as a captain's pick. He would be the first playing-captain since Hale Irwin at the inaugural Presidents Cup in 1994. Unlike the Ryder Cup, where the captain's picks are decided two weeks before the matches, the Presidents Cup is still six weeks away. Niemann, the first player from Chile to be in the Presidents Cup, earned his PGA Tour card the year he turned pro.
