The gaggle of assistant captains filed into the interview room, first the global contingent and then the Americans. After four back surgeries and a bout with prescription drugs this spring and summer, Woods gave a recent update that seemed encouraging.
He said in his blog on May 24 that surgery brought instant nerve relief.
"Yeah, definitely", Woods said. Three weeks later, he entered a treatment center.
This year's team includes players such as Australia's Day, Scott and Marc Leishman, South Africa's Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel and Branden Grace, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, South Korea's Kim Si Woo and India's Anirban Lahiri.
