Tiger Woods celebrates the United States’ Ryder Cup victory over Europe, which set a new record.
Tiger Woods, who is recovering from injuries sustained in a car accident in February, came to Twitter to congratulate Steve Stricker and the United States team on their historic Ryder Cup victory.
Tiger Woods praised and congratulated the US team on their Ryder Cup victory against Europe at Whistling Straits, which set a new record of 19-9. Woods hasn’t been spotted on a golf course since sustaining major leg injuries in a car accident in February in Los Angeles.
Woods was rumored to be returning to the course as the US Team’s deputy captain for the Ryder Cup, but captain Steve Stricker said that would not happen before the tournament.
Although Woods was not present, his presence was felt as he supported the squad from afar, sending guidance and messages of encouragement to Stricker and his teammates.
“The US Ryder Cup squad put forth a dominant performance. Woods remarked on Twitter, “I can’t wait to meet and rejoice with all of you.”
“I’d like to congratulate all of the players, vice captains, and, of course, captain Steve Stricker.”
In a car accident earlier this year, Woods suffered major injuries, including shattered bones in his right leg and various injuries to his right ankle and foot.
He was speeding to a golf course documentary shoot when his car crossed a median and rolled over a grassy area, requiring Woods to spend a month in the hospital.
Woods had undergone his fourth back treatment in December and was still healing when the accident occurred, putting him out of the Ryder Cup.
Team USA had a commanding 11-5 lead heading into the final day, and then went on to win eight of the 12 singles matches for a record 19-9 triumph in the modern era of the Ryder Cup.
It’s the biggest defeat for Team Europe since its inception in 1979, and Woods, who assisted Stricker in leading the US to the 2017 Presidents Cup victory, urged the players on as they attempted to make history.
Xander Schauffele, the Olympic champion, took three out of four points this week, and the 27-year-old appreciated Woods’ comments to the squad.
“Brinkwire Summary News” says, “We got a lovely note from Tiger yesterday.”
