U.S. Presidents Cup captain Fred Couples announced today that he has selected former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and phenom Jordan Spieth as his picks to fill out the American team. Hats off the Freddie for selection Spieth who is tearing up the PGA Tour with a win at the John Deere earlier this summer and a final round 62 at the Deutsche Bank Championship last weekend in Boston. Simpson was in the top ten on the Presidents Cup points race until Steve Stricker and Zach Johnson knocked him out last week. Couples said Simpson deserved a spot but he may be questionable choice given that he ranks 163rd in putting inside five feet and 165th in putting from three to five feet. The failure of Americans to make key putts last fall cost them the Ryder Cup. Dustin Johnson might have been a better pick. But give Couples credit for having the guts to pass over Jim Furyk in favor of the less experienced Spieth. The Presidents Cup will be played at Muirfield Village outside Columbus, Ohio from Oct. 1-6.

I don’t know if saw Nike’s new commercial welcoming Tiger Woods back to competitive golf, but it’s kind of creepy, not to mention inappropriate. The commercial shows a somber Tiger listening the voice of his late father, Earl, asking him “I want to find out what you’re thinking was, I want to find out what your feelings are, and did you learn anything,” statements that originally must have been related to an experience on the golf course. But in the context of Tiger’s admitted infidelity, they take on a much different meaning. Equally troubling is that Nike would use the old man whose had left his wife and children to marry Tiger’s mother. At least Nike didn’t close the commercial with their famous tag line, “Just Do It.”
