Woods has played in seven Ryder Cups. This will be his first as a non-playing assistant captain, which will take some getting used to for everyone, including Woods.

GREENSBORO, North Carolina (AP) — There’s still plenty at stake at the Wyndham Championship this year — even if some of the big names from last year aren’t playing.

Tiger Woods didn’t return, sidelined by a back injury. And Davis Love III — a local favorite and three-time winner who had hip surgery last month — is only watching.
