Stricker says United States golf team to stand during national anthem

Gros' comments are echoed by two-time European Tour victor, Christian Cevaer, who now works as a golf analyst for French TV channel Golf+ - a pay-to-view channel much like Sky Sports that will host coverage of next year's match.

Not to mention that Koepka is the U.S. Open champion and Thomas won the PGA Championship.

Steve Stricker captains the USA team, while Nick Price is in charge of the worldwide selection.

"We've had that discussion already", he said.

The NFL players' protests began as a call for awareness to the issues of systemic racial inequality and the mistreatment of African-Americans by law enforcement. He's paired with a Presidents Cup rookie in Kevin Kisner and going up against the formidable team of Australians Jason Day and Marc Leishman.

This was all about driving a cart as an assistant captain at Liberty National. It's great for Tiger.

"We hope he comes and he'll be welcomed by us and by our players", Monahan said.

PGA Tour professional Peter Malnati became one of the game's first pros to voice support for the demonstrations in a lengthy tweet this week. Even if that future means he can no longer play competitive golf again.

"We get to have a lot of fun at a team event", Spieth says. "He guarantees me he's on the right track".

Woods answered a wide range of questions from his health, to the firestorm surrounding the national anthem, to the natural disaster in Mexico, during an afternoon gathering of assistants from the United States and global teams.

After a long, grueling PGA Tour season, in which Spieth added his third major championship win and almost claimed the season-long FedEx Cup, it would have been understandable for the 24-year-old to endure some fatigue. If the scores are tied, the two teams share the Cup.

"First things first", Woods said.

"When you're speaking to somebody, they say, "Oh, so you're playing on the European Tour but what are you doing on the side?'".

It was clear from the generous crowds that attended Wednesday's practice day that the underdogs will not be without a substantial level of support in NY this week.

But judging by the smile that often crept across his face, Woods has embraced his newfound role as advisor - especially in the wake of a hard summer and with his playing future still very much in doubt. He remains limited to 60-yard shots and work around the greens, with many physical hurdles still left to cross before he can even assess his competitive options. He added with a laugh, "Just don't ask me to kneel with it, 'cause I won't do it". Another assistant captain, Fred Couples, said, "Having Tiger with the team now is pretty much the same as if he was playing".

Phil Mickelson, who's rarely short on opinions, was asked about his reaction to the weekend's events, but he, too, was less-than-expansive.

While there is, an undeniable sense is that the American line up have the distinct edge, Price and his assistants are confident in the strong team they have at their disposal as they strive to maintain a continuation of the momentum shown over the past few matches. "But this week, I'm so proud to represent the United States, to play for my country, to play for my teammates and participate in this great event".
