Tiger Woods took a strong interest in the Presidents Cup last month, and he has already stated his interest in the 2016 Ryder Cup. Tiger recently got in touch with David Love III asking how he could help.
Love made his announcement at The RSM Classic in Georgia. Woods was indeed named as a vice captain, alongside Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker. A fifth assistant will be selected at a later date.
“I will continue to do whatever I can to help win the Cup back,” Woods said in a statement. The 2016 Ryder Cup will take place Sept. 7-Oct. 2 at Hazeltine Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota.
Love acknowledged that he’s made this announcement earlier than usual. “I understand that this is the first time we’ve announced these assistant captains this early. I think it’s important that we do so at this time because these guys can help me over the next year. They can be out on TOUR talking to players.”
“(It’s) going to make an incredible statement to our players that, hey, these guys are ready to go. We’re excited about it. We have a game plan.”
