Woods endorses Watson's Ryder Cup appointment

8:45 am on 14 December 2012

Tiger Woods has been among the first to congratulate Tom Watson on his appointment as the United States Ryder Cup captain for the 2014 match against Europe at Gleneagles in Scotland.

In recent years, the Americans have picked a new captain for each Ryder Cup, but the PGA said it wanted to try something different after losing seven of the last nine contests.

63 year old Watson will be a second-time Ryder Cup captain having led the U.S. to victory in 1993, the last time the Americans won the Cup away from home.
