Tiger Unsure If He Will Play Again

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.

On paper, they have a far stronger team than their global counterparts with Mickelson the lowest ranked player at 30th in the world.

"There were times when..." We adhere to our rulebook and to our core values and to our traditions, and I think that's why our sport is so successful. The bouncing just hurt too much, ' he said. "Driving a vehicle still hurt". "There were some intrepid times, not just for this golf tournament but for life going forward". For now, he is working out six days a week, "alternating between the treadmill, bike riding, swimming and lifting twice a day".

"Sure, you can take a picture", said Spencer Berry, 60, who had traveled in from Fargo, N.D. Berry wore a Team USA hockey jersey with matching bandana and posed with his oversized American flag littered with signatures from his decades as a golf fan. "I was also thinking, 'Is it going to stay young?' We're going to be in our 30s at some point".

"I asked the guys this morning on the bus, 'How do you guys want to handle it?"

Woods explained his desire to return to the links Wednesday, saying "I think it's fun".

'First things first. Just keep waiting for what the surgeon says. "I didn't know if I was going to be able to be here because I couldn't ride in a cart", Woods said Wednesday. My muscle tone is coming back, but I'm not in golf shape yet. "Woosie" won 52 events, including the 1991 Masters, and was ranked No. 1 in the world for 50 weeks in 1991 and 1992.

Or if he ever will play again. "And like I said, this is not a political statement that we're making". He's also as uncertain as ever.

"The pain is gone", Woods said in his first appearance since an arrest for driving under the influence on Memorial Day, "but I don't know what my golfing body is going to be like because I haven't hit a golf shot yet".

"We've had a discussion already and none of my players want to do that (protest)", Stricker said. That made Woods smile, only because he doesn't know what 100 percent means anymore with all his injuries.

Most of those inquiries centred on Woods' health and if there is a timetable for his return. He turns 24 later this year and is — or was — an unheralded member of that fabled high school class of 2011.

Steve Stricker, captain of the US Presidents Cup team taking on an worldwide team in the biennial match play contest, said he and his players had discussed the matter and opted to recognize the anthem in the traditional way - standing with caps off and hands on hearts.
