Jordan to assist Couples again

Michael Jordan is returning as one of U.S. captain Fred Couples’

Presidents Cup assistants for the November 2011 matches at Royal

Melbourne.

Couples said Monday at Royal Melbourne that Jordan and Champions

Tour player Jay Haas will return as assistant U.S. captains after

helping lead the winning American team in 2009 in San

Francisco.

International captain Greg Norman selected Frank Nobilo as one

of his two assistants, with the second to be determined next

year.

”I can’t wait,” Jordan said. ”I had such a good time in San

Francisco with Freddie, Jay and the team back in 2009. I love golf,

the team atmosphere and, of course, competition, and to be in the

locker room with some of the best golfers on the planet was a great

experience.”
