Woods a Ryder possibility
Golf: U.S. captain Tom Watson says he would be foolish not to consider Tiger Woods as one of his wild-card selections for the Ryder Cup.
Woods missed the cut by five shots at the PGA Championship, just five days after he withdrew from a World Golf Championship because of a sore back. Woods missed three months recovering from March 31 back surgery.
Watson doesn’t make his three captain’s picks for three more weeks.
