"Tiger Woods probably won't be there." This was stated by Steve Stricker, captain of the United States at the Ryder Cup in Wisconsin, at the start on Friday 24 September at the Whistling Straits Golf Course in Kohler.
Still struggling with a painful rehabilitation program after the serious accident last February in Los Angeles, Tiger Woods may decide to continue his period away from the spotlight and therefore not show up as an illustrious guest, in Wisconsin, to attend the super golf challenge between USA and Europe.
Steve Stricker, statements
"I hear him quite regularly - Stricker stressed - and even if he will not be here physically he is a full member of our team. He is improving and his goal is to get back to playing." Then a passage on the alleged disagreements within the team, starting with the non-idyllic relationship between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.
"This affair will not represent a problem for the team. I spoke to both of them - Stricker stressed - and they assured me that everything is ok" A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty.
This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship).

"He's a good guy, he's been through a lot as a sportsman and he's the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I'm not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period.
" These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed 'the Baltimore Shark', important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. "The mental aspect is something I've worked on a lot with him lately.
I'm really lucky to have him around. Besides, he's a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value." This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
