Tiger wants to be assistant on Ryder Cup team

According to U.S. Captain Davis Love III, Tiger Woods said he’s ready if he doesn’t qualify for Hazeltine to trade in his sticks for a spot as an assistant during the 2016 Ryder Cup…

“He [Woods] was watching at home and he just had to call,” Love said. “He was talking about all the things he thought we needed to do, and he had a lot of ideas. We’re already doing a lot of planning for next year, and it’s great. It’s part of the whole process that started after Gleneagles. Everybody is thinking about it, which is great.”

Love said the next task for him is naming assistant captains. Woods is a candidate, among many, if he doesn’t qualify for the U.S. team. “But we’re not waiting around for that. We’ve already been doing a lot of planning,” Love said. “And Tiger is just as interested as the rest of us to get going.”
