Fred Couples, Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker will be three of captain Tiger Woods' assistants for the 2019 Presidents Cup, it was announced Tuesday.

US golfer Tiger Woods (R) leaves the 13th green with teammate Steve Stricker after sinking a birdie putt to win the hole during the afternoon four-ball round at the 39th Ryder Cup golf matches at the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois, September 29, 2012.

Woods also selected Steve Stricker and Zach Johnson, and he plans to announce one more before the Presidents Cup on December 12-15.

US captain Tiger Woods appointed the 59-year-old Couples to be an assistant at Royal Melbourne in December. He was briefly tied with Mickelson for the all-time lead in Presidents Cup wins (24) until Mickelson ran his total all the way to 26 at Liberty National two years ago, when Woods was an assistant.

Couples has previously captained the U.S. to three Presidents Cup victories, while Stricker was in charge during their victory in 2017, and Johnson served as an assistant at last year's Ryder Cup.

"Freddie and I go way back in the Presidents Cup, " Woods said.

"I didn't just want to have the next in the pipeline, but to have "Stricks" and Freddy as vice captains just in case things get a little more complicated if I make the team", Woods told the Australian Associated Press at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles.

Stricker, who captained the victorious 2017 USA team at Liberty National where Woods served as one of his assistants, will be making his second stint as a captain's assistant.

"I can't say enough about the opportunity to serve as an assistant for Tiger's first captaincy", said Stricker.

"I'm thrilled he's chosen to trust me with this important role, and I look forward to doing my part to help the team succeed".

He could be a contender for one of Wood's four captain's player picks if he does not automatically qualify in the top eight determined by FedEx Cup points.

The 2019 Presidents Cup begins December 12 at Royal Melbourne Golf Club, the site of the only worldwide win in the event's 25-year history.

Hale Irwin, who was the USA captain in that inaugural event, also played for the American side, going 2-1-0.

"I've enjoyed being a captain's assistant for the past two Presidents Cups, and to support Tiger in his first captaincy is going to be a very special experience", Couples said.
