Tiger takes on Ryder Cup assistant challenge

READY FOR THE CHALLENGE: Tiger Woods

TIGER WOODS has been named as one of the assistant captains for the United States team in next year's Ryder Cup.

The golfer will join Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk in supporting team captain Davis Love III at the event, which will be held at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota.

Following the announcement from the PGA of America, Woods said: “This is something I want to do. I will continue to do whatever I can to help win the Cup back.

“Once I'm fully healthy, I'd like to try to make the team, too, but either way, I'm very excited to work with Davis, the other vice captains and the players to get a U.S. Victory."

Love added: "Tiger has said, 'I want to make the team.' If he makes the team, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it."

The Americans are keen to stop the European team from winning the tournament for a fourth time in a row.

Woods, the former World No. 1, is currently recovering from his second back surgery in 18 months after disappointing results in recent years.

He has previously been part of seven Ryder Cup team's but is currently ranked 384th in the world, six places below his 2014 end-of-season ranking.
