Woods: "Maybe take myself out"
Tiger Woods won the US Masters last spring. Nevertheless, he risks missing out on this year's President's Cup. Only one person can save a place for the player - team captain Tiger Woods.
Former World Woods Tiger Woods has not played on top during late summer.
Following the victory in the US Masters in April, he has missed the qualifying limit in the British Open, and this weekend Woods did not play well enough to reach the end of the weekend on the PGA Tour, where the 30 best players on this year's tour make up end victory.
As a result, the 43-year-old has not qualified for the United States team in this winter's President's Cup, the team competition where the United States meets an international team of non-US or European players. But Woods is the team captain for the United States and has four wild card spots to hand out.
- My job as captain is to put together the best possible team with the twelve best players, Woods tells American media.
- My deputy captains and I will definitely discuss whether or not to play. But in the end, it's my decision.
Woods still has time to think about the team and says the decision will be made sooner after a competition in Japan in October. So what is needed then for player Tiger to be able to convince team captain Woods that he should be allowed to play? :
- It is important to train, play and stay focused, says Woods.
The President's Cup is played in mid-December in Melbourne, Australia.
