Australia's Aaron Baddeley came up just short of the playoff at the Tour Championship. Now he hopes that was good enough to earn a spot in the Presidents Cup.

Greg Norman, captain of the international team, will announce his two picks on Tuesday to fill out the 12-man squad.

"It's frustrating not to win because you're right there and you feel like you're playing well enough," Baddeley said. "At the same time, I definitely showed Greg that I did what I needed to do to come here and play well, and hopefully I'll get a positive phone call from Greg."

Baddeley came into the final round at East Lake on Sunday tied for the lead with Hunter Mahan, but a closing 72 left him at 7-under 273 - one stroke out of the playoff between Bill Haas and Mahan.

Baddeley has made a major jump in the world rankings - he was 56th coming into East Lake - and feels his game is back on track after a discouraging slump.

"The positive thing is I feel like it's only going to get better," he said. "It's close."
