Tiger putting team first when it comes to his 'playing' role

MELBOURNE, Australia – Tiger Woods’ entire philosophy this week at the Presidents Cup is summed up in two words: team first.

Woods knows it’s a rarity to be a playing captain and said Tuesday at Royal Melbourne that he will play only when he thinks it’s in the best overall interest of his squad.

“Whatever we deem as the best possible order for our team, that’s what we’re going to run with,” Woods said.

Each player is required to play two out of the first four sessions, so he’ll play at least that much.
