Tiger Woods, playing captain in a 2019 US victory, couldn’t be an assistant at this week’s Presidents Cup due to severe leg injuries suffered in a car crash last year. But that doesn’t mean the 15-time major champion isn’t helping US captain Davis Love and the American staff against the Internationals at Quail Hollow.
Love said Woods remains a key advisor even though it’s from a distance. “We’re including him, as usual,” Love said. “He’s having fun. He obviously misses it. I know he wishes he were here.” Love called Woods during Thursday’s opening matches while watching groups play the sixth hole. “We talked for a while,” Love said. “I said, ‘At least you’re watching. You can call if you see anything.’
