International captain Ernie Els has replaced Day with South Korean An Byeong-hun as his team of heavy underdogs attempt to beat the powerhouse USA outfit for the first time since 1998.

Day, set to play his fifth Presidents Cup, was a captain’s pick for the December 9-15 biennial event at Royal Melbourne Golf Club where the International side, representing the rest of the world minus Europe, face a US team led by Tiger Woods.
