PODCAST: Is Davis Love III the right captain? When’s Tiger coming back?

In the last week, a pair of intriguing stories have shaped golf's near-term focus and long-term future. We discuss them both in this week's "The 19th Hole Golf Show."

First, we discuss Tiger Woods' decision to step away from pro golf until his game is "tournament ready." We parse his statement and try to decipher if he'll play The Honda Classic, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the Masters. We also wonder what "tournament ready" means to a guy who has always held he only plays if he thinks he can win.

Then we dig into the leak that Davis Love III will be named the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup captain. How did he land the job? Why him over Paul Azinger or Fred Couples? Is he 2012 blueprint an advantage for the U.S. heading into Hazeltine against new European captain Darren Clarke?
