The United States Captain for the Ryder Cup has picked two assistants, and they happen to be two of his best friends. Davis Love III selected Mike Hulbert and Fred Couples to help him for the upcoming Ryder Cup matches which happen at the end of September in Medinah. Now, Love must now choose two other assistant captains for the event. It was no surprise to anyone that Couples would be an assistant, as the golfer had accidentally let it slip last month. It was wryly that Love announced that he would be re-announcing what Couples let slip.
Fred Couples and Davis Love were together in the World Cup and won four years in a row as a team from the 1992 season to 1995. They were teammates in the Ryder Cup as well. Couples hasn't yet been a Ryder Cup captain, but the last two President's Cup he took the United States to victory and was chosen once again to be the captain of the US team for that competition. Love said that it was one of the reasons that he chose Fred Couples for his assistant, saying that he was surprised by his commitment and his attention to detail.
