I wish he hadn't.   It would be nice to give the spot to some of the deserving rookies.

It's an exhibition event and nobody is going to get more eyeballs and more publicity for the President's Cup than Tiger Woods. It's an absolute no brainer for him to play as long as he's healthy, IMO.

I cannot remember the last time I was this excited for a Presidents' Cup.  It may have been in 2007, but that was the first one I watched, and since I had trouble watching a lot of the previous year's Ryder Cup (my first since taking up golf), I was excited because I'd get to watch it.

I agree...but then again these rookies have plenty of time to play in future Prez Cups...Tiger doesn’t.

If they were "deserving" they would have made the team on points.

exactly - picks are in November.  If Tiger is still 8th in the world (and 5th of only americans), I wonder which rookies are more deserving......

It's a narcissistic move.  He played great for 4 days in April, but what has he done lately?  Exhibition or not, I want the United States to win.  I don't want a guy who's busy being captain having to also worry about playing well and getting points for the United States.  And why should he risk being a goat and not the G.O.A.T.?  It's time to give others a chance.

He’s still one of the top players. What four guys that didn’t qualify would you pick above him?

Plus it’s an exhibition.

Just wonder how much he can play. It seems like his back was almost day to day as the season went on. Also, don't more guys play everyday in the President's Cup vs. the Ryder Cup?

Do you really think that golfers all over the world who are watching consider it just an exhibition?  Do you think that any Captain wants his players to consider it just an exhibition?  Remember the Ryder Cup's "War on the Shore?"  They didn't call it the "Exhibition on the Shore."  These Cups are serious matches that are held every two years and I want the United States to win.  

There are definitely four other guys who I would pick over Tiger. 

I also happen to think it's unfair for any Captain to pick himself.  It's hardly fair and objective.

You ducked the question.

I ducked it on purpose because you'll never agree, so why bother?  I said what I had to say.  If Tiger plays, I will certainly be rooting for him to win every match.

So what? You have an opinion as to who might be better choices to play than Tiger. Sounds like a decent discussion. No reason to duck it. Hell for alternate shot I’d like to have Cameron Champ in there.

I have never been excited for a Presidents' Cup, and this year won't be any different.

Seriously, just give the US the W already and lets move on.

    • Hi Everyone, sorry I haven't posted my progress. Currently I am asking my instructor to help me with chipping and putting in the last 2 weeks and for the next 4 weeks. I realize that this is where I can drop my score fastest.  On the full swing and lag. Right now on the range I am just doing half swing drill while try to maintain a bowed left wrist (closed club face) and hit the ball with a low trajectory. I find it that if I try my full swing I tend to revert back to the old swing. It is difficult to refrain from hitting full shots at the range but I think it is best if I just be patient with the half swing stinger shots right now. I am hoping to keep doing half swing with bowed left wrist with the tour striker 7 iron and PW to retrain my body, get comfortable with this, and slowly creep into the full swing after 3 months.  The tour striker irons help but they are not perfect. Amazingly, I can still flip with these clubs although it is much harder to flip.These clubs force me to be less flippy, although not quite having much lag yet. Separately, I am doing a lot of weight shift drills without the club. Just loading weight on the right foot and then move to the finish position. On the course I am scoring better. Playing mostly around 90. I have basically stop topping or hitting fat with short irons on the course which was a problem a few months ago. One problem is that now sometimes I suddenly hit 10 or even 20 yards longer on short irons. 
    • Score are up today - it could be the weather conditionsl https://twitter.com/PGATOUR/status/1322209025791086593
    • For some folks. Others like myself will hit blocks to adjacent fairways all day. It is not universal.   
    • Anything Ping makes is great, I just wish they hadn't added the feral but then again I'm old school. I still have G15s which I play sometimes. Go for it, you will not be unhappy.
