Golf – Ryder Cup 2018: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson Included
Tiger Woods says his arrival to the United States Ryder Cup group following a 6 year gap is “beyond special”.
The 42 year old golfer, Woods has been named as one of three trump card picks for the US team to confront Europe, along with Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.
The fourteen time major champ is on the playing side for the 1st time since 2012, having recouped from back surgery and demonstrated an arrival to form.
A little over 365 days ago, Tiger Woods was cleared to begin chipping for the 1st time since a back fusion. Today, he is a no-brainer captains pick for the 2018 Ryder Cup. What a time to be alive.

Meanwhile, Mickelson who is 48 years of age plays in a record 12th event subsequent to making his introduction in 1995.
US captain Jim Furyk will make his 4th and last trump card pick for the competition on Monday. The biennial rivalry will happen at Le Golf National close Paris in France from 28-30 September.
