For the first time in a long time, Billy Horschel will get to represent his country on the golf course.

The 35-year-old Floridian with seven career wins on the PGA Tour was one of six players added Wednesday to a stacked U.S. team that will try to win the Presidents Cup for the ninth straight time.

Captain Davis Love III selected two other newcomers to U.S. team competition with Max Homa — a two-time winner on the PGA Tour this past season — and Cameron Young, a 25-year-old who nearly won two major championships this year as a rookie.

The other picks went to three-time major champion Jordan Spieth, two-time major champion Collin Morikawa and Kevin Kisner, who thrives in match play and contended in the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.
