Woods 'would be honoured' to captain USA in Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods "would be honoured" to captain the United States in the Ryder Cup but suggested he hopes to return to playing duties first.

The former world number one served as an assistant to Davis Love III as the USA defeated Europe 17-11 at Hazeltine, winning the event for the first time since 2008.

Woods missed the victory at Valhalla due to the knee injury he suffered capturing that year's U.S. Open, the most recent of his 14 major triumphs.

Willett apologises for brother's 'US fans imbeciles' rant

Schoolteacher Peter Willett wrote the piece for a golf magazine, offering his thoughts on what each side needs to do to win the biennial event at Hazeltine.

"The Americans need their baying mob of imbeciles to caress their egos every step of the way," he wrote.

Danny Willett said: "I apologise. It's not the thoughts of me or the team."

Kuchar speculates Tiger could be final Ryder Cup pick

Davis Love III announced three of his four Ryder Cup picks on Monday, as Rickie Fowler, Kuchar and J.B. Holmes heard their names called during the news conference.

But one spot remains up for grabs and Kuchar thinks he has the answer.

Speaking in an interview on Golf Channel, Kuchar said he has "heard" Woods may receive the final captain's pick despite his status as a vice-captain.

"I heard even possibly, this is hearsay, but heard maybe even Tiger Woods could potentially be a pick," he said following the news conference.
