Tiger Woods announcement teased as golf icon gets backing from unlikely source

There’s been support for Tiger Woods from an unexpected place.

The demand that Tiger Woods lead Team USA in the Ryder Cup the following year is growing stronger by the day, as former Scottish golfer Bernard Gallacher is endorsing him for the esteemed position.

Even though Woods has never led his nation in the historic competition, many believe he is the front-runner to do so in 2025. In addition to his eight playing appearances, he served as vice captain in the 2016 Ryder Cup.

When Woods expressed optimism about the possibility of being appointed this month at the Masters, it increased the rumors surrounding his possible appointment. Gallacher, the three-time captain of the European team, has added weight to the growing support for Woods’ candidacy.

Gallacher, who has competed in eight Ryder Cups, said in an interview with Bunkered: “They’re just picking their moment to announce Tiger.” Tiger is an unique instance. At Bethpage, they want him to be the captain. They have to win again and make amends for their poor performance in Rome. Because players in his generation want to play well for Tiger, he would make an excellent captain.”

When talking about the advantages of selecting Woods as captain, Gallacher cited the global sports star’s commercial appeal. “Commercially, it would keep his brand there,” he said.

“He would maintain his brand there by serving as the Ryder Cup captain, particularly when he isn’t competing as frequently on the course. It would assist with the fact that he has new clothes of his own.”

However, Gallacher acknowledged that it might not be likely that Woods would commit to an uncommon four-year term over two events. “He’d undoubtedly make a fantastic home captain. The problem is that if he triumphs in New York, he might later declare, “I want to win again, so I don’t want to go to Ireland and lose.”

In response to questions regarding the rumors that he would be the next captain of Team USA during his 24th Augusta tournament appearance, Woods indicated that discussions would go on after the competition. “We’re still talking about it,” he stated. After this event, Seth [Waugh, the chief executive of the PGA of America] and I will take a seat and discuss it.

“I’m going to be busy for a few weeks, so let me concentrate on finishing this week and, ideally, obtaining another jacket. Next week, we can sit back and discuss it.”
