Five Australians will lead the charge for home advantage following the selection of the Captain's Picks for the 2011 Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

Greg Norman today selected Victorian pair Robert Allenby and Aaron Baddeley as his two Captain's Picks to join the team.

Fred Couples selected the previously confirmed Tiger Woods and PGA Tour Championship winner Bill Haas.

Adam Scott, Jason Day and Geoff Ogilvy had all booked their spot automatically by finishing in the Top 10 on the standings following the BMW Championship in Illinois.

Scott, Day, Ogilvy, Allenby and Baddeley will play alongside South Africans Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Charl Schwartzel, Koreans Y.E Yang, KJ Choi and Kyung-tae Kim and Japan's Ryo Ishikawa.

Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Bubba Watson are among the United States Team members who will play at the Emirates Australian Open at The Lakes Golf Club in Sydney in the week prior.
