Couples, 54, has been in charge of the American team for the last three Presidents Cup events but said he has no desire to shoot for a fourth consecutive win over the Internationals when the biennial competition resumes in South Korea in 2015.

"A three-peat's good enough for me," Couples told NBC after Tiger Woods made the clinching putt at Muirfield Village Golf Club that gave the Americans an 18-1/2 to 15-1/2 win over the Internationals to maintain their dominance of the event.
