Internationals a presence at top

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Fred Couples is playing with two potential members of his Presidents Cup team  this afternoon in Bubba Watson and Anthony Kim. He might want to be keeping an eye on the competition, though.

Of the 12 players at the top of the leaderboard right now who have finished their first rounds in the Northern Trust Open, six  are eligible to play for the International Team. Not to mention, five of them are Australians – which should play well when the matches are played at Royal Melbourne Nov. 14-20.

Aussies John Senden, Robert Allenby and Aaron Baddeley are among the six players tied for the lead at 4 under. Two more from Down Under -- Geoff Ogilvy and Stuart Appleby – finished at 2 under while Fiji’s Vijay Singh is among those who shot 68s.
