Nick Price and Jay Haas have been announced as captains of the international and United States teams respectively for the Presidents Cup 2015 in Songdo IBD, Incheon City, South Korea.

Price retains the leading role for the international team having been captain last year, while Haas also has considerable experience having served as a captain's assistant three times.

Both men joined PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem at a press conference at the inaugural Big Cedar Lodge Legends of Golf to make the announcement.

The biennial competition will take place from 6-11 October next year and it will be the first time the event has been hosted in Asia.

"Nick Price and Jay Haas bring tremendous experience, enthusiasm and knowledge to The Presidents Cup and were obvious choices to captain the international and US Teams as we take the event to Asia in less than 16 months," Finchem said.

Price invited South Korea's KJ Choi to join his team's leadership as vice-captain, while Haas will be assisted by three-time US team captain Fred Couples.

The additional captain's assistants for the tournament will be announced later this year.
