Looks like it will be announced on Tuesday that popular golfer Fred Couples will be officially named the next captain of the United States Presidents Cup team, according to a Golf World report.

Couples would replace Jack Nicklaus, who guided the U.S. to a 2-0-1 record in the last three matches against the international team. The Americans have won two straight competitions to run their record to 5-1-1 overall.

Nicklaus and Gary Player negotiated a controversial tie in South Africa in 2003.

Couples will be 50 when the Presidents Cup begins Oct. 8, 2009 at Harding Park in San Francisco. He is a 15-time winner on the PGA Tour, including the 1992 Masters.

This will be a popular choice with the players as Freddie is well liked good move for the U.S.A.
