Meanwhile on the tour…
DORAL, Fla. — Davis Love III, who last week was named 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup captain, was appointed Wednesday as an assistant captain for Jay Haas at this year’s Presidents Cup in South Korea.
Love, the losing captain at the 2012 Ryder Cup, was an assistant at the 2013 Presidents Cup for Fred Couples — who also will serve as an assistant for this year’s event.
“We’ve talked about this for quite a while, before he was on the [Ryder Cup] task force or named the Ryder Cup captain for 2016,” Haas said at a news conference Wednesday at Trump National Doral, site of this week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship. “I asked him if he still wants to do it, there’s a lot on his plate. So I could understand if he didn’t want to do it. But he loves the team concept, he was excited about it when I asked him to do it, if he didn’t play, didn’t qualify… this is not something I sprung on him in the last few weeks.
“I gave him an opportunity to say, ‘Enough is enough, I need to step aside for a while.’ But I think this can only help going forward.”
Love, 50, plans to play a full schedule this year on the PGA Tour, which will allow him to play with and compete against possible U.S. team members — one of whom could be Haas’ son, Bill, who won the Humana Challenge in January.
International captain Nick Price, who was the losing captain in 2013 at Muirfield Village in Ohio, named countrymen Mark McNulty and Tony Johnstone as his assistants on Wednesday.
The Presidents Cup will be held Oct. 8-11 at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in Incheon City, South Korea. By Bob Harig | ESPN.com
