In 13th position on the current Presidents Cup International standings, Scott may not be one of the 8 automatic qualifiers for the team but only a foolish person could argue he won't get one of Ernie Els' 4 captains picks if he needs one.
The Presidents Cup runs from December 9-15 and is wedged between the Australian Open in Sydney and the Australian PGA which will finish only three days before Christmas.
Scott's place in the field at Royal Pines, on paper at least, should make it more attractive for other world-class stars to stay on in Australia after the Presidents Cup.
