Zach Johnson: Tiger Woods could be part of the US Ryder Cup team

Tiger Woods could be part of the US Ryder Cup team. US captain Johnson explained under what conditions Woods could be part of the team. “I would only contemplate having him on the team if he felt – if he was putting up some numbers and some scores, No.

1, where he’s showing some sign of being competitive, “Johnson said, as quoted by “And then No. 2, that discussion would be had with the other guys that are a part of that team, and specifically him.

If there is anything I trust in Tiger Woods, is that he’s extremely invested in this team and the future Cups. Extremely invested. I can’t speak that enough. And then I think you would do anything and everything for the betterment of the team.

I assume he would say … I don’t like basing on assumptions … but I’m confident that he would say, ‘Yeah, I can play, or no, I can’t.’” Last year, Johnson also talked about the possibility of Woods being part of the team.

“Given who he is and what he’s all about, I can’t tell you right now: I don’t know if he will be here next year, but he will be a part of this team in some capacity,” Johnson said. “He’s gone through some things as of late that make it difficult, whether it’s travel or what-have-you,”

Tiger Woods and injuries

Tiger Woods has huge problems with injuries and it seems that he has to completely change his previous rhythm.

However, the very fact that he can perform is a big deal. “I think something that is realistic is playing the tour one day, never full time, ever again, but pick and choose, just like Mr. (Ben) Hogan did,” Woods told Golf Digest.

“Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that. You practice around that, and you gear yourself up for that. And you play. I think that’s how I’m going to have to play it from now on. It’s an unfortunate reality, but it’s my reality. And I understand it, and I accept it”.
