Nice catch by Dave Shedloski over in Korea and writing for GolfDigest.com: Ryder Cup task force member Tiger Woods and new nominee for Couch Potato Of The Year took time away from his DraftKings homework to call Presidents Cup captain Jay Haas.
When 2016 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love was put on the phone, Woods said he's ready if he doesn't qualify for Hazeltine to trade in his sticks, set aside his pride and give WAGs and PGA of America officials a ride to the next tee.
"He [Woods] was watching at home and he just had to call," Love said. "He was talking about all the things he thought we needed to do, and he had a lot of ideas. We're already doing a lot of planning for next year, and it's great. It's part of the whole process that started after Gleneagles. Everybody is thinking about it, which is great."
Love said the next task for him is naming assistant captains. Woods is a candidate, among many, if he doesn't qualify for the U.S. team. "But we're not waiting around for that. We've already been doing a lot of planning," Love said. "And Tiger is just as interested as the rest of us to get going."
