Mahan doesnt feel presidential


NORTON, Mass. – U.S. Presidents Cup captain Fred Couples was about as certain as you can be at the PGA Championship that he would make Hunter Mahan one of his two discretionary picks.

“I’m going to pick Hunter even if he doesn’t make it [on points],” Couples said. “I guarantee that one.”

Couples has informed Lucas Glover that he also was taking him.

Still, Mahan said after Sunday’s round at the Deutsche Bank Championship that he’s taking nothing for granted. Couples and International captain Greg Norman will formally make their picks on Tuesday.

“I am playing like I still have work to do,” Mahan said. “As far as I’m concerned, I’m not in.”

After going 6 over after seven holes at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Mahan has played the last 47 holes in 11 under. He shot 66 Saturday and 69 Sunday.
