Golf: Muirfield Village to get Presidents Cup

DUBLIN, Ohio Two officials say the Presidents Cup is coming to Muirfield Village in 2013, giving the course Jack Nicklaus built the distinction of hosting golf's three biggest cup competitions.

The two officials with knowledge of the plans spoke on condition of anonymity because it has not been announced. Nicklaus and PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem were expected to hold a press conference Wednesday at the Memorial Tournament.

Muirfield Village hosted the Ryder Cup in 1987 and the Solheim Cup in 1998.

It will keep Nicklaus involved in the Presidents Cup, where he was the U.S. captain a record four times.
