Tiger Woods admits he may never return to competitive golf

The song is not usually a part of the standard golf tournament, but will be played ahead of the tournament at Liberty National Golf Club, before the USA team faces off against a team of global players from eight different countries, whose anthems will also be played.

He has played in every Presidents Cup since 1994 and ever Ryder Cup since 1995. He represented Europe on eight straight Ryder Cup teams from 1983-97. The close finish seemed to energize a team that had become exhausted of getting hammered time and again.

"I'm still training. I'm getting stronger", Woods said a few minutes later. "I would love to see what kind of person he was then".

"I enjoy being out there with the guys".

"I'm hoping that we're going to change that tomorrow". He's back serving as a master strategist and mentor this year in the Presidents Cup. Instead, the worldwide team is made up of players from the rest of the world.

"We've had that discussion already", he said. "That's the biggest thing for us is that, you know what, I said it morning, on paper, we are not the best team".

It's been in the American game in this format, and Mickelson always figures into the equation.

Thomas, who won more than $10 million as victor of the season-long FedEx Cup ahead of Spieth Sunday, had little chance to go on a spending spree as he hot-footed it to New Jersey for the biennial Ryder Cup-style event.

This year's Presidents Cup also will live up to its name.

His 42 victories on the PGA Tour put him at No. 9 on the career list, three behind Walter Hagen. He has earned just over $83 million, second only to Tiger Woods.

The former World No 1 has bagged 14 Majors but is continuing his recovery from injury and personal issues, including an addiction to painkiller drugs. He was never won the PGA Tour money title.

"Woosie" was a European Tour Order of Merit victor and a two-time European Player of the Year.

"I've been out of the game for a while", Woods said. "So when the Ryder Cup comes to Paris I think it'll be very, very noisy".

"I think President Trump is right", said Davis Love III, last year's victorious Ryder Cup captain and an assistant to Steve Stricker this week at the Presidents Cup, which pits the star-studded United States golfers against an worldwide side in the biennial competition. US captain Steve Stricker should have this point written in pen already for Team USA. He responded with a tie for sixth at the TPC Boston. He shows his emotion and he's a great player with fantastic potential. Mickelson is tough to ignore.

Brooks Koepka strides up the 14th with a NY icon in the background. She was a member of nine Solheim Cup teams and captained the 2013 team. He has age on his side.

World No. 22 Scott, who has a 13 wins, 17 losses and five halves record, said: "It's good to see a lot of young blood in the team and excitement levels are at an all-time high".

"It's fun to play with a guy who dominated his sport and still has that competitive edge", Fowler said, adding that Jordan was as competitive as ever, perhaps even more so.

Woods may not be playing, but Phil Mickeslon is - again. "I've known him for 10-plus years now". "It's just a matter of if he's healthy enough can still feel like he can go".
