ATLANTA (AP)

Australia's Aaron Baddeley came up just short of the playoff at the Tour Championship. Now he hopes that was good enough to earn a spot in the Presidents Cup.

Greg Norman, captain of the international team, will announce his two picks Tuesday to fill out the 12-man squad.

''It's frustrating not to win because you're right there and you feel like you're playing well enough,'' Baddeley said. ''At the same time, I definitely showed Greg that I did what I needed to do to come here and play well, and hopefully I'll get a positive phone call from Greg.''

Baddeley came into the final round at East Lake on Sunday tied for the lead with Hunter Mahan, but a closing 72 left him at 7-under 273 - one stroke out of the playoff between Bill Haas and Mahan.

Baddeley has made a major jump in the world rankings - he was 56th coming into East Lake - and feels his game is back on track after a discouraging slump.

''The positive thing is I feel like it's only going to get better,'' he said. ''It's close.''
