Tiger Woods, Captain’s Pick
Tiger Woods uses one of four captain’s picks on himself and will be the first playing captain in 25 years
U.S. Presidents Cup Captain Tiger Woods announced his four captain’s picks Thursday, and the most newsworthy name among them is Tiger Woods. He will become the first playing captain of a Presidents Cup team in 25 years.
When Woods recently won the inaugural Zozo Championship by three strokes in a year in which he also won the Masters, the likelihood of his making himself a playing captain no doubt increased substantially. “I think the player got the captain’s attention,” he said then.
The last playing captain in a Presidents Cup was Hale Irwin in 1994.
