Couples, Price To Be Next Captains

View Comments

DUBLIN, OH (AP) – Fred Couples returns for a third stint as U.S. captain for the Presidents Cup, with a different captain trying to beat him.

Nick Price, a three-time major champion from Zimbabwe, has been selected to lead the International team in 2013. Greg Norman was the International team captain the last two times.

Couples joins Jack Nicklaus as the only captains to serve in three matches. The Americans have won the Presidents Cup both times with Couples as the captain, including last year at Royal Melbourne. Price played five times in the Presidents Cup, the most of any captain on either team. His last appearance was in 2003 in South Africa, which ended in a tie.

The Presidents Cup will be played Oct. 3-6 at Muirfield Village.
