PLAYING IN SOUTH KOREA: The 2015 Presidents Cup will be played at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon, South Korea, marking the second time in a row that a course designed by the 18-time major championship winner will host the competition.

This year's Presidents Cup is set for Oct. 3-6 at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.

The announcement was made Wednesday by PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem along with Nicklaus, who was at the Bridgestone Invitational to receive an honorary award.

Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea hosted the Songdo Championship in 2010 and 2011, and the 2012 Korea Women's Open on the Korean LPGA Tour.

The biennial Presidents Cup pits a United States team against an International side comprised of players from everywhere outside of Europe.

GRATEFUL: When 36-hole leader Hunter Mahan left the Canadian Open last week to get home for the birth of daughter Zoe, it opened the door for Brandt Snedeker to win by three strokes. He collected the $1,000,008 first prize for his sixth career victory.

Asked Wednesday if he had decided what he would get the Mahans for a baby present, Snedeker laughed and said, "I have not. But it's going to be a nice gift, I'll tell you that."

PRIMED FOR OAK HILL: Justin Rose, who won the U.S. Open at Merion in June, says it's not just the $8.75 million purse that draws the world's top players to Firestone Country Club each year.

The Bridgestone is the week before the PGA Championship, played this year at Oak Hill in Rochester, N.Y.

Rose is one of many who believe there are a lot of similarities between Firestone and most of the traditional, old-style country clubs that host the year's final major championship.

"I feel like this course will be great preparation," he said. "It's a golf course here where you have to play really well tee to green. Sometimes straight par 4s are the hardest, where there's not a lot of shape to them — and you do have quite a few of those out here on this golf course."

STEP LADDER: Snedeker believes that a career as a pro golfer usually follows a career arc: you play, you contend, you win a tournament, you win a big-money World Golf Championship event and then you win a major championship.

Right now, Snedeker is trying to make the step to winning a WGC or maybe even skipping right ahead to taking home a major.

"It's the next step in a progression," he said. "You win tournaments and then you start winning bigger tournaments. Obviously, the WGCs, especially Bridgestone, has one of the best fields in golf. You're playing against 70 guys who are probably the top 50 in the world and 20 guys who are playing great golf.

"Winning these tournaments is kind of the next step on the rung for me and then winning a major would be a next step after that. These are where you really find out where your game stacks up against the best in the world."
