Tiger Woods: If the Ryder Cup task force does it right, we do this once

Task Force, assemble!

The 11-person Ryder Cup task force will meet for the first time next week, according to GolfChannel.com. An originally planned first meeting at this week's Hero World Challenge in Orlando wasn't feasible after all, paving the way for a kickoff conference call next week.

The team, led by new PGA of America president Derek Sprague, has been, well, tasked with a complete audit of how the organization approaches the biennial matches, including how the captains and players are selected, as well how the team functions the week of the event.



Tiger Woods, a member of the committee but not of the 2014 Ryder Cup team responsible for the committee's creation, was asked Tuesday at his Hero World Challenge in Orlando about what he hopes the task force will accomplish.

He hopes to walk away "so everyone is happy with the selection process -- not only the players, but the captain, assistant captains" looking at "everything that's involved in that that particular week and that everything is aligned so that going forward, it's not going to just serve just one Ryder Cup but all future Ryder Cups."

And, hopefully, with a playbook that won't need tweaking.

"If we do our job correctly," Woods said, "we're only going to have this once."
