Tiger Woods’ fans will obviously be disappointed because they will not be able to witness Woods’ performance in the Ryder Cup this year.
A four player U.S team is going to be sent to the Ryder Cup. The captain of the U.S team is Tom Watson who was thinking about selecting Tiger Woods as one of his teammate for the Cup. However, Woods made it clear that he does not want to be a part of the team.
Woods has taken this decision because ever since he won the major championship in the year 2008 at the US Open, he has been facing lots of personal problems. Along with that, he has been struggling with serious injuries- the latest being the back injury.
On the 31st of March, 2014, Woods underwent a back surgery and therefore he revealed that he will not participate in the Ryder Cup because he is not perfectly fit for it.
According to his trainer and doctors, Woods needs to rest so that his back muscles can be healed and rehabilitated efficiently. Therefore he can neither play golf nor indulge in any kind of practices related to the sport. Woods is very disappointed as he will not be able to participate in the Cup.
Tiger Woods is going to support the U.S team at the tournament and thinks that the team is outstanding and is going to perform really well in the Ryder Cup 2014.
Tom Watson (U.S team captain) is going to select his fellow teammates for the Cup on 2nd of September, 2014. Watson is of the opinion that Woods did a very smart thing by being honest about his health. He wishes that Woods recovers soon and gets back into the game with a bang. Watson’s main aim is to select three U.S players who will give their best at Gleneagles.
