Tiger Woods Given Time to Consider USA Captaincy for Ryder Cup | Golf News

Heading: Tiger Woods to be given time to decide on USA captaincy for 2025 Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods is facing a tough decision regarding his potential role as the USA’s Ryder Cup captain in 2025. The golfing legend will be given ample time to make up his mind, with talks set to resume after the PGA Championship.

Woods, who is the favorite to lead the American team at Bethpage next September, expressed uncertainty due to his involvement in negotiating a peace deal between the PGA Tour and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. This could potentially rule him out from taking on the captaincy role.

PGA of America chief executive Seth Waugh acknowledged Woods’ busy schedule and emphasized the need to give him and the committee space to make a decision. Talks are expected to continue after the major tournament.

In a related development, Rory McIlroy expressed concerns about the unity between the PGA Tour and the PIF following the resignation of Jimmy Dunne from the American circuit’s policy board. Waugh remained optimistic about the future of golf, hoping for a deal that would benefit the game as a whole.

The ongoing discord between the tours, particularly with the emergence of LIV Golf, has put financial pressure on various organizations and raised questions about the sustainability of multiple professional circuits. Waugh stressed the importance of reaching an agreement to avoid further damage to the game.

Golf enthusiasts can catch all the action of the PGA Championship live on Sky Sports, with coverage starting at 1pm on Thursday. Stay tuned for updates on Woods’ decision and the latest developments in the golfing world.
