The 2012 Ryder Cup is just a few months away. On Wednesday, US team captain Davis Love III officially announced Fred Couples and Mark Hubert would be two of his four assistant captains. Couples and Love were frequent playing partners in the Ryder Cup and other team competitions, while Hubert was an assistant captain at the 2002 Ryder Cup.

“We know Fred’s passion for team events,” said Love. “Playing matches with him, playing World Cups with him was pretty amazing, actually. People see Freddie, he makes it look so easy and he’s got this nice swing and he’s always smiling and waving. But what’s going on in his head, I think, is completely different. He really has a lot of pride in his game.”

Love also had plenty of love for Hubert:

Hub knows a lot of guys out here and a lot of guys know him. He’s one of those kind of the favorite hang guys, you know, around the Tour … One of the first phone calls I got when it was announced that I was going to be the captain was from Curtis [Strange, the 2002 US Ryder Cup captain], and he said the best assistant captain in the history of the Ryder Cup was Mike Hulbert. I’ve stayed with him hundreds of times in hotel rooms and houses across the Tour, and he’s been a close, close friend of mine for a long time.

Love says his final two assistant picks will be harder decisions. Justin Leonard, Scott Verplank, and Paul Goydos have been mentioned as possible choices. The 2012 Ryder Cup starts on September 28th.
