Woods makes pitch for Presidents Cup

6:37 am on 24 August 2011

Tiger Woods says he is considering adding another tournament to his calendar, just five days after American Presidents Cup team captain Fred Couples criticised him for not playing enough golf.

Woods says he add another PGA Tour event to his schedule and is looking at his options.

Last week Couples said Woods needs to enter more tournaments to be considered for the US team.

Couples went on to say he would pull rank if he had to, to make sure Woods is at the top of his game by the time the tournament starts on November 14 in Melbourne.

Woods, who failed to make the cut at the PGA Championship last week and also failed to make it into the FedEx Cup playoffs, says he's talked to Couples and wants to be in the team.
