Norman will play in Presidents cup despite rankings

Captain Peter Thomson today said Greg Norman would be in the Presidents Cup team, even if he is not qualified.

Players qualify by ranking, but unless several leading players can start to get points, it will be the smallest Australian representation in the four-year history of the event, Thomson said.

This year's event will be in Virginia from October 19 to 22, and each team has 12 players.

Norman is 14th on the international team selection standings, but as captain Thomson can make two selections regardless of ranking, and he will include Norman.

"It seems inconceivable there would be a Presidents Cup without Greg Norman," Thomson told AAP.

There were four Australians on the last International team: Norman, Steve Elkington, Craig Parry and Stuart Appleby.

The standings are led by Fiji's Vijay Singh, the US Masters champion, followed by South African Ernie Els, Zimbabwe's Nick Price and Paraguay's Carlos Franco.

Tiger Woods heads the US team standings.
