Woods to be vice captain at Ryder Cup

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) Tiger Woods will be at the Ryder Cup next year at Hazeltine. Still to be determined is whether he plays.

U.S. captain Davis Love III said Wednesday that Woods, Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker will be vice captains for the 2016 matches in Minnesota.

Woods had back surgery in September and a follow-up procedure. He said he faces a long and tedious recovery and has not indicated when he will be able to play again. Love said that Woods has told him he still wants to make the team - and if does, he still wants to be a vice captain.

Both teams can have up to five vice captains.


Love previously named Tom Lehman as a vice captain, and he will name a fifth one later.
