Love holds a 16-8-5 record in Presidents Cup play, including a 5-2-1 mark when teamed with Couples.

“He is one of my closest friends,” Couples said in announcing the decision.

The Presidents Cup will be played Oct. 3-6.

Love said he would like nothing more than to someday be in charge of the American side.

“I would love to do it,” he said. “Hopefully down the road a Presidents Cup captaincy will come up. It would be fun.”

The International team is led by captain Nick Price, with assistants Shigeki Maruyama, Mark McNulty and Tony Johnstone.
