The internationals came out ready, prepared, played, and they drummed us. My job is to make sure that the guys are prepared, they’re still playing and trying to stay fresh and competitive late in the year.”
Woods reiterated that he wanted to be a playing captain, but said he would consult with his vice captains and team mates over whether to pick himself, if he failed to qualify as one of the automatic selections.
“After the Tour Championship, we’ll have our top eight guys, and hopefully I’ll be part of the top eight,” he said.
“If not, then (we) are going to have to figure out … who are the next four guys that will be best served to be part of this team.
“I don’t know if I’ll be a part of that conversation either way, as a player, but as a captain, yeah, I’ll be a part of it.”
Woods, a non-playing vice-captain at the 2017 edition, said taking charge of the President’s Cup team was “special” and that he had a good idea of what kind of captain he wanted to be.
Well, one that leads our team to a victory, one that the guys will have a lot of fun and respect for,” he said.
“And one that’ll create an environment where it’ll be a moment and a week that they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.”
