SHEBOYGAN, Wisc. -- Whereas last week, he was evasive, on Tuesday, Tiger Woods was unequivocal.
Finally clearing up his feelings about whether he would accept a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup roster as a captain's pick, the world No. 1 blurted out a fast "yes," though he hopes it doesn't come to that.
Woods is 10th in Ryder Cup points and only the top eight earn automatic spots when the roster is finalized Sunday night. Four more captain's picks will be made by Corey Pavin in another three weeks. Pavin said he hoped to meet with Woods this week to gauge his interest in playing for the U.S. team after missing the last matches with a knee issue.
Woods said that meeting has not taken place and he hopes to make it moot.
"Haven't seen him and hopefully I won't be a pick," Woods said. "I would like to be able to play myself onto that team."
