Fred Couples and Greg Norman finalized their 12-man  Presidents Cup 2011 rosters on Tuesday, each selecting their two captain's picks.

Couples, the American captain, expectedly picked Tiger Woods and added 2011 FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas to the team. Norman, the International captain, selected Robert Allenby and Aaron Baddeley.

The 2011 Presidents Cup will take place from November 17-20 at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.

The United States has historically dominated this event, posting a 6-1-1 mark in the eight previous Presidents Cups. It has won the last three, and the International side's only victory came back in 1998, coincidentally the last time the event was held at Royal Melbourne.

Of the four picks, Woods was the mostly widely expected, as Couples said earlier he would select him. It will be his seventh straight Presidents Cup appearance, coming full circle to the same site as his original selection to the team.

The other pick had been largely a mystery until it was Haas' name announced as the 12th member. Coming from a large golf family that includes Champions Tour veteran Jay Haas, Bill Haas made his largest mark on the golf world last week by winning the FedEx Cup with a victory at The Tour Championship.

The American squad includes Matt Kuchar, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson, Webb Simpson, Nick Watney, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, David Toms, Hunter Mahan and Jim Furyk.

The International team includes Jason Day, Adam Scott, Charl Schwartzel, K.J. Choi, K.T. Kim, Retief Goosen, Geoff Ogilvy, Ernie Els, Y.E. Yang and Ryo Ishikawa.
