Homa qualified automatically for Zach Johnson's team and will be one of four rookies in Rome.
He already has experience representing the U.S. in team golf, having been part of Davis Love III's successful 2022 Presidents Cup team.
It was anticipated that even if Homa didn't automatically qualify for the side he would be one of Johnson's picks.
But awkwardly, Young was left out leaving egg on Couples' face. Johnson said the comment was 'in jest'.
As for Homa, he believes that he and Morikawa would make a 'annoying' duo to play against.
"We were actually talking about it yesterday, I haven't been told anything yet so I have no secrets," Homa told Sirius XM PGA Tour Radio.
