US captain defends ‘intangible’ Mickelson pick

0

INCHEON, South Korea: Jay Haas backed on Tuesday his decision to give a Presidents Cup captain’s pick to veteran Phil Mickelson, saying the five-time Major winner offered something “intangible” to his US team. As the players headed out for their first full day of practice at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club in Incheon, South Korea, Haas strongly defended his decision to choose Mickelson as one of two picks in his 12-man team after finishing only 30th in the US qualifying list. Mickelson is the only man to play at every Presidents Cup since its inception in 1994, when he was also a captain’s pick.
