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.

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".

"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".
