Furyk is still unsure about Tiger’s role on the US Prez Cup team

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC – Tiger Woods suggested last week at the Masters that his future as a potential U.S. Ryder Cup captain for next year’s matches will be made soon, and that choice could also impact the U.S. Presidents Cup team this year.

When asked about Woods’ potential status as vice-captain for this year’s Presidents Cup during a call with reporters on Wednesday, Jim Furyk’s answer offered a glimpse into how the two decisions are intertwined.

“I wonder what the odds would be in Vegas at this point? I’m probably not even allowed to talk about that because I would be a big bet in terms of gambling,” said Furyk, this year’s Presidents Cup captain. ‘I’m a bit curious: what are the chances of him becoming Ryder Cup captain? What do you think of that? Can I turn it around and ask you: is he going to accept that position? I know there was some talk about it during his press conference at the Masters, so I’m kind of waiting to see and hear what happens there.

Woods led the US Presidents Cup team to victory in Australia in 2019 and is the frontrunner to captain the US Ryder Cup team at Bethpage next year, but that decision has been postponed by the return of the 15-time major winner this season and his position. on the PGA Tour policy board.

“We’re still talking about it,” Woods said last week at Augusta National. “It’s something that [PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh] and then I’m going to sit back and talk about it [the Masters]. I said I’m going to be busy for a few weeks, so let me just focus on getting through this week and hopefully get a new coat, and then we can sit back and talk about it next week.

Historically, the PGA of America announces the Ryder Cup captains much earlier. In 2022, Zach Johnson was named captain of the previous year’s team on February 23, and Steve Stricker, who led the US team to victory in 2021, was named captain on February 20, 2019.
