Tiger Woods hinted that he was in discussions to be the U.S. Ryder Cup team captain in 2025 during his pre-tournament press conference in Augusta, Georgia, Tuesday (April 9) ahead of the Masters Tournament this weekend.

“We’re still talking about it," Woods said with a smile when asked about potentially serving as captain of the U.S. team via the New York Post.

“It’s something that Seth [Waugh, the CEO of the PGA of America] and I are going to sit back and talk about it after this event,’’ Woods added. “I said I’m going to be busy for a couple weeks, so let me focus on getting through this week and hopefully getting another jacket, and then we can sit back and talk about it next week.’’

The 2025 Ryder Cup will be held at Bethpage Black, where Woods, 48, won his second of three U.S. Open titles in 2002. The 15-time major champion had previously captained the 2019 Presidents Cup team to victory in Royal Melbourne and served as the U.S. Ryder Cup team's assistant captain in 2018.

Woods, widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential golfers of all-time, is scheduled to compete in the 2024 Masters Tournament less than two months after withdrawing from the 2024 Genesis Invitational tournament on February 16 due to influenza while serving as the tournament's host. The 48-year-old was involved in a single-car crash in Los Angeles on February 23, 2021, which resulted in open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of his tibia and fibula in his right leg, as well as other injuries to his foot and ankle.

Woods is a five-time Masters champion, having last won the event in 2019, securing his 15th career major, which is second only to Jack Nicklaus and has 82 tour victories, tied with Sam Snead for the most all-time.
