Mickelson, Lahiri among 4 added to Presidents Cup

Phil Mickelson has been selected as a captain's pick for the Presidents Cup and will be on a U.S. team for the 23rd consecutive time.

Anirban Lahiri of India was picked to play for the International team second time, and it might be just as meaningful.

U.S. captain Steve Stricker used his two picks on Mickelson and Charley Hoffman, who was narrowly bumped out of the top 10 automatic qualifiers in the final week. Mickelson tied for sixth at the TPC Boston on Monday to finish at No. 15 in the Presidents Cup standings.

Mickelson was No. 30 when picked for the 2015 team.

The surprise was International captain Nick Price taking Lahiri, who missed a short putt on the 18th hole in 2015 that proved pivotal in the Americans winning. Price also selected Emiliano Grillo of Argentina.
