Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods has not ruled out the possibility of potentially being the team captain in the future.
Tiger Woods will not be the captain of the US team, after everything that has happened. The brilliant golfer was mentioned as the leading candidate to captain the US team, which has ambitions to win the Ryder Cup this year. However, Keegan Bradley has been chosen by the PGA of America and will have an interesting task. The 38-year-old Bradley is one of the youngest Ryder Cup captains ever and will have a great responsibility in the upcoming edition of the Ryder Cup.

Although Bradley is the new captain, many focus on Tiger Woods, questioning why Woods will not be leading the team. In a statement, Woods decided to reveal the reasons why he declined such a role. His commitments on the PGA Tour prevent him from fully dedicating himself to Team US, believing he wouldn’t be able to adequately handle such a role.

“With my new responsibilities to the Tour and time commitments involved, I felt I would not be able to commit the time to Team USA and the players required as a captain,” Woods said, as quoted by Golf Monthly.

Tiger Woods has not ruled out the possibility of potentially being the team captain in the future. The 48-year-old still doesn’t know when this might happen, but such an option could certainly become a reality in the future.

“That does not mean I wouldn’t want to captain the team in the future. If and when I feel it is the right time, I will put my hat in the ring for this committee to decide.”- he continued.

Tiger Woods and his earlier stances
Tiger Woods, since the creation of LIV Golf, has advocated for the rights of the PGA Tour, considering it a tour with perspective and one in which individuals can advance. Tiger was not initially pleased with the emergence of LIV Golf, but it seems he has now accepted that LIV Golf is part of this sport. Woods, in an interview with the media two months ago, spoke about the captaincy role at the Ryder Cup, emphasizing that his commitments on the PGA Tour could hinder him from taking on the responsibilities of being the captain of the Ryder Cup team.

“I’m dedicating so much time to what we’re doing with the PGA Tour, I don’t want to not fulfil the role of the captaincy if I can’t do it,”-Tiger Woods said.

The 48-year-old golfer does not want to be a captain and does not want to dedicate himself to that role as much as possible. Leading the US team at a prestigious competition such as the Ryder Cup carries with it a great responsibility. Woods wants to give the maximum and do great things.

“What that all entails, representing team USA and the commitments to the PGA of America, the players and the fans, I need to feel that I can give the amount of time that it deserves.”- Tiger Woods continued.

Keegan Bradley on Tiger Woods
Bradley will thus have an interesting task. This amazing golfer admitted that before accepting the captaincy, he had a conversation with Tiger Woods. He wanted to hear what Tiger Woods thought about it, highlighting that they had a great conversation. Someone like Woods, full of experience, can certainly guide a person in the right direction and provide useful advice.

Bradley is happy that Woods was open to such an option, considering Bradley a great candidate. Lately, Bradley admitted they had several phone conversations, and Woods was very helpful. Keegan praised Woods, acknowledging that he had assisted him in various moments and was always open to advice and similar.

The new US Ryder Cup captain told Woods that he could be involved in the team’s work and assist him and the staff.

Woods is the biggest figure in the golf world, and Bradley emphasizes that all golfers look up to Woods, respecting his opinion. The 38-year-old golfer stresses the public doesn’t realize how much Woods loves golf and how important certain things are to him. Bradley believes that Tiger’s decision (to decline the captaincy due to commitments) shows how much he respects such a role, not wanting to engage in something if he cannot give his best.

It will be interesting to see how Bradley adapts to his new role and whether he will have any difficulties in delivering his best. There are high expectations of him, but the question remains whether he will meet them. The US team is excellent with quality individuals, but it is crucial now to create a team that can compete with the European team, which has also shown its strengths, as seen last year in Rome. Surely, an exciting edition of the Ryder Cup awaits us next year.
