Tiger Woods has said he would ‘love’ to captain USA at the Ryder Cup at some point in the future.

The 40-year-old, who stayed well out of the media spotlight throughout the week, aided Davis Love III as one of his vice-captains at Hazeltine – and was credited with the decision to put Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed out again in the Saturday afternoon fourballs which the pair won.

And, after the USA completed a comfortable 17-11 win – their biggest margin of victory since 1981 – Woods reflected on his experience as part of the team and stated his desire to one day be in Love’s position.

“Seeing what our captain went through, that's hard,” said Tiger Woods. “Yeah, I would love to do it. I would be honoured to do it in the future, if asked.

“But from the player standpoint of it, I like playing. I love these guys. I love being out there, in the fight with these guys. I was just in the fight a different way and had to do my role and had to my job in a different way, and it was pretty cool.

“For me, as a player that's been on these teams, to be on a different side of it, to be on the vice-captaincy side of it has meant so much to me, to get to know these guys on a different level and to know how hard a job it is to do this. What the vice-captains and the captain ultimately have to decide; it's tough.”

After the US celebrations at Hazeltine, Woods’ focus will now switch to his return to PGA Tour action at the Safeway Open in ten days’ time, his first competitive start for 14 months.
