Tiger Woods would like to captain Ryder Cup team someday

BELEK, Turkey — Tiger Woods hopes to captain the U.S. Ryder Cup team someday. He still plans to play in a few more before that happens.

Woods is coming off a disappointing performance at Medinah. He secured only half a point in his seventh Ryder Cup appearance as Europe retained the title Sept. 30.

Woods says “when my golfing life is slowing down and when it’s over, that would be a huge honor to be a part of a Ryder Cup from a captaincy side.”

Woods arrived Monday for the $5.3 million Turkish Airways World Golf Finals, an eight-player event being promoted simply as “Tiger v Rory.”

McIlroy, who plays Woods on Wednesday, says he hasn’t “touched a club since the Ryder Cup.”
