I don't care if he plays or not. While I think he has earned the right to play in it, I would rather see him put all this attention on being the Captain. I guess if he thinks the team would be stronger with him on it he should certainly consider playing. I love these matches, Solheim  Cup, Ryder Cup and even the Presidents Cup.

Perhaps this has already been touched on. If so my bad, as I have not read all the posts. I dont follow much of the pga either. 

The questions I have are these. Did TW earn a spot on the team?  If he didn't would he have been a captain's pick? If yes, would that captain's pick be because of his current golf game, or for tv ratings?

Just courios.

He is the captain and he already said he will be picking himself. The picks aren't officially due for a few more weeks. He finished 13th on the list so it's not so far fetched. He is the GOAT and I'm fine with the decision. He continues to grow the game and draw eyeballs to an event, like most of you have stated in this thread, is of little interest or is an "exhibition." He's playing because he is competitive as hell and knows it will help the event. As far as his current game? Its nonexistent. He was just cleared to practice today since his most recent surgery.

When did he say this?  (signing off some tweets with a wry joke about it doesn't count.)

 

picks are still a month out, right?

He’s been signing the letters that way since February. So who knows if he’s serious or not?

the poster said "he already said he will be picking himself " - frankly, I find that a reach.  As you said, we don't know if he's serious or poking fun.

IMHO - I think it's much more likely it's a bit of a joke on his part.  I believe if he's serious, he'd be much more direct and communicate his intent clearer.

Like I said - anything other than that?  I find it funny and wry and likely he's poking fun at just the type of people that parse words, look for drama, build strawmen, and get worked up over pissy stuff like that.  If there is nothing other, then the poster is being way too absolute in his opinion on the topic.

 

I wanted the poster to refer to something official.    Which there isn't.  Of course.  Tiger knows as much as anyone, that the final pick selection process can regularly come down to the wire - and for any type of reason.

 

Best Regards,

rehmwa, monarch of Minnearolina
