Ryder Cup captain: Tiger will come back strong

American Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin says Tiger Woods will be as

strong as ever on the course when he comes back.

Woods is on the brink of divorce after admitting that he

cheated on his wife and says he has decided to take an indefinite

break from the game to try and save his marriage,

Speaking in London, where he became the first non-European to

receive the British Professional Golfers’ Association annual

recognition award for services to golf, Pavin said Friday he was

shocked by what had happened to the world’s No. 1 player but was

confident he would be back.

He said that “Tiger’s obviously a very strong-minded

individual and I don’t think he will play any differently when he

comes back.”
