In a move that surprised no square, nowhere, US Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin added Tiger Woods to the 2010 squad as a captain’s choice along with Stewart Cink, Zach Johnson and Rickie Fowler. Pavin’s picks will join Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Hunter Mahan, Phil Mickelson, Jeff Overton, Steve Stricker and Bubba Watson as they attempt to bust some European azz October 1-3 in Wales.
Although Tiger was not present in New York for the announcement, he did address the assembled group to thank Pavin for the opportunity and to reassure all that he will be trying to mash for some rations for Team USA.
Since the divorce from his former boo Elin Nordegren, Tiger has gotten his proverbial groove back, regaining his position as the #1 golfer in the world. Look for Tiger to do some work at the Ryder Cup.
