Tiger Woods to Tom Watson on Ryder Cup: 'I want you to pick me'
The Ryder Cup is just over a month away and oh my gosh this is going to be awful, isn't it?
Tom Watson held a Ryder Cup news conference in the shadow of one of the greatest majors of my lifetime on Monday and oh, hey, we're talking about Tiger Woods again.
Watson revealed Woods said the following:
"I want you to pick me."
Well of course he did. I want Watson to pick me for Gleneagles but that doesn't mean it's going to (or should) happen.
Watson then said a bunch of things he's largely already said about Woods over the past six months. Things like:
"He brings something to the team in a big way. The most important thing is can he [physically] play?"
"He is Tiger Woods and he brings a lot to the team. If he has the ability to play and he's healthy, he brings a lot to the team and I'd be a fool not to consider him."
I know these are things Watson has to say in a press conference in early August. He can't just straight up say, "He's out, I'm done with him!"
But if you take a wounded Tiger to Gleneagles for Rory McIlroy and Co. to feast on, you might not even need to play the Sunday singles matches.
