Tiger Woods has raised the prospect of him captaining the United States, although the 14-time major winner insisted his priority is to make it on to the next team as a player.

Woods, 40, is due to return next week at the Safeway Open on the PGA Tour after more than year on the sidelines recovering from multiple back operations. Woods is actually part of that six-man panel, joining Phil Mickelson, Love and three members of the PGA of America executive that will decide who will take the reins for 2018.

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