ATLANTA (AP) - Australia's Aaron Baddeley came up just short of the playoff at the Tour Championship. Now he hopes that was good enough to earn a spot in the Presidents Cup.
Greg Norman, captain of the international team, will announce his two picks Tuesday to fill out the 12-man squad.
Baddeley came into the final round at East Lake on Sunday tied for the lead with Hunter Mahan, but a closing 72 left him at 7-under 273 - one stroke out of the playoff between Bill Haas and Mahan.
Baddeley has made a major jump in the world rankings - he was 56th coming into East Lake - and feels his game is back on track after a discouraging slump.
