The 19th Hole Golf Show: Tiger, Furyk and Stricker as Ryder Cup assistants captains


Davis Love III named Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker as 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup assistant captains, but what does that announcement do for the team and what impact do assistant captains really have on the biennial matches? We discuss.

We also implore Adam Scott to stop complaining about the Olympic format.

Finally, we talk about the season-ending tournaments on the LPGA and European tours, explaining why they're a late-season success.
