Tiger continues to work on his game in hopes he'll be ready for the Masters at Augusta National next month.
"I know he'll do an outstanding job leading the 2016 U.S. team," Tiger said of the newly minted captain.
"The last two weeks have been very disappointing to me, especially Torrey, because I never want to withdraw," Tiger said.
In Tiger's Blog, Tiger recaps his past experiences and talks about his plans for the future.
