Jordan Spieth can't wait for Presidents Cup

Confidence, talent and composure, the 2013 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Jordan Spieth has it all.

But despite finishing the year 10th on the Money List, taking his first Tour victory at the John Deere Classic and swelling his bank balance by a cool $4m, Spieth is still hungry for more and will look to sate himself at the Presidents Cup where he makes his debut as the youngest American to ever participate in the biennial event.

"I'm so excited to get going, I'm nervous which is a great thing," said Spieth. "To hear people chant 'USA' gives me the chills. For it to be my first time, I think bringing that kind of new firepower, new emotion may be will help."

A wildcard pick for U.S. captain Fred Couples, Spieth's stunning form in his first professional made him an easy selection to join his more experienced team-mates.

"I didn't expect it at the beginning of the year so it wasn't going to be a let-down but I felt like I did what I needed to do and I couldn't have been more excited to receive Freddie's call," Spieth said.

Veteran Steve Stricker will team up with the rookie in Thursday's opening fourball matches and the man easily old enough to be Spieth's father, is anticipating a successful partnership.

"He's a pretty calm, collected guy, and I am, too, so I think we hit it off in that respect," said Stricker. "This is my fifth Presidents Cup, and so maybe he can lean on me a little bit.

"I don't think he needs to (though) he's got everything in order. And you know, who doesn't want to play with him? He's playing great, he's a good kid. He's got a good head on his shoulders. So I'm looking forward to it."
