Tiger Woods ‘couldn’t make time’ to serve as 2025 US Ryder Cup captain


Tiger Woods won’t be captaining the US team at the 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Block in New York, but he’s not ruling out the future.

In a statement read by PGA Senior Director of America Julius Mason during a news conference introducing 2025 US captain Keegan Bradley, Woods said his commitments to the PGA Tour Policy Board and PGA Tour Enterprises Board of Directors would have prevented him from spending more. Time required for work.

“With my new responsibilities and time commitments for the tour, I felt I couldn’t devote time to Team USA and the players who needed it as captain,” Woods said. “That doesn’t mean I don’t want to captain a team in the future. If I feel it’s the right time, I’ll put my hat in the ring for this team to decide.

Bob Harik or Sports Illustrated reported Woods turned down the captaincy on Monday, which was decided by a panel of three players (2023 captain Zach Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas) and three executives from the PGA of America.

Woods is the favorite for the position, but said in May that his time and attention was occupied by PGA Tour-Saudi Arabia PIF transactions. Bradley could still be involved in the 2025 Ryder Cup if he looks to use his experience in an advisory role.
