It looks like the 14 times Majors title holder Tiger Woods is taking the job of the Ryder Cup vice captain pretty seriously.
Tiger has sent a text to US Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III with names of four golfers that he thinks is in the mind of the US team captain. This information was revealed by Davis Love III himself.
Love is happy with how the team for the Ryder Cup is shaping up. With Walker is playing the best golf of his career and winning the PGA Open Championship at Baltusrol, he too will be looking for a place in the US Ryder Cup team.
The Ryder Cup will be hosted in Hazeltine and eight players will be picked on merit to represent the United States. With Tiger texting the probable names list to Love, it is not clear as to whether Love will be in a dilemma to choose those players or whether Tiger’s selection was based on merit.
Love acknowledged that Tiger has put a lot of work in sending the names of the players. He has not just texted the names of certain pairs or some groupings. Ass Tiger is a great tactician, Love says that there is a lot of thought put into by Tiger to come out with the names of the players to represent US.
As this news was revealed to the media by Love just before Walker claimed his maiden US Open Championship, it is not sure as to whether the result could bear any effect on the selection made by Tiger Wood.
Wood has given the list based on the criteria on who would benefit the most on and off the golf course. It would also be a list that would have players that gel with the team and the management and with whom Woods would be comfortable with.
