PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- Fred Couples and Greg Norman are the new captains for the 2009 Presidents Cup in San Francisco. It's
the first time both captains have previously competed in the matches.

Couples has played on five Presidents Cup teams for the United States, and he hit the winning shot the first two years. Norman sat out the inaugural year in 1994 because of an illness, then played on the next three teams.

Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player had been captains the last three matches.

The Presidents Cup will be played in October 2009 at Harding Park in San Francisco. The United States has a 5-1-and-1 record, winning last year at Royal Montreal. The international team's only victory was in 1998 in Australia.
