Tiger Woods more than happy to take Ryder Cup back seat

WINNING SMILES: Tiger Woods with Davis Love III (right)

GOLF LEGEND Tiger Woods has spoken of his delight following the USA’s recent Ryder Cup success over Europe. Woods, a multiple major winner, was an assistant captain to Davis Love III, but was more than happy despite not playing himself.

Woods said: “I was just trying to do my role. And my role is to help the team however possible. And I hope I’ve done that. Whether I was playing or not, I was part of a team and our team won.

“I’m still playing for pride even whether I’m playing for money or not. I take pride in the work I do out there and this is no exception, whether there’s cash involved or not you’re always playing for pride.

Woods was reportedly more talkative than usual with the players on the team and was a positive influence behind the scenes.

The former world no.1 has announced his competitive return will take place in mid-October, with the 14-times major winner also planning an appearance on the European Tour, at the Turkish Airlines Open in early November
