Tiger to play for Presidents spot
Wednesday 24 August 2011
Former world No 1 Tiger Woods may play in the PGA Tour Fall Series in a bid to win a place in November's Presidents Cup.
The 35-year-old, who is now 36th in the rankings, has struggled for form and fitness this year and missed the cut at the recent US PGA Championship. He has not won a title since November 2009 but has played in every US Presidents Cup team since 1998.
Woods was not scheduled to play again until the Australian Open from 10-13 November.
However, US skipper Fred Couples said: "He can't just show up the week before in Australia. I need him to play more than just there."
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
