Iron the red polo and press those khakis. Tiger Woods has his sights set on returning to the course. Still recovering from injuries sustained in a February car crash, Woods won’t play in this month’s Ryder Cup, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see his familiar swing again. As one golfer in the know suggests, Woods is “moving in the right direction.”

Tiger has previously served as a co-captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team. This year, he’ll be watching from afar as he continues his rehabilitation.

Steve Stricker, captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team, told SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio that he regularly speaks to Woods: “I’ve talked to Tiger a lot. He’s a part of this Ryder Cup family. He’s very passionate about (the Ryder Cup). He’s a great guy to talk to. He’s a great guy to lean on. We’ve had a number of talks.

“He continues to be a part of this, even though he won’t physically be here. He will be with us in spirit and help us if we need any help from afar.”

Though Woods won’t be joining Stricker at Whistling Straits, the site of the Ryder Cup, a return to the course appears to be in his sights.

“He won’t be able to be a captain’s assistant this time around just because of his ongoing rehabilitation to try to get better and try to play golf again, and that is going well. He’s progressing, he’s doing well, things are moving in the right direction,” said Stricker.

The 2020 Masters in November marked the last time Woods participated in an official PGA tournament.
