MILWAUKEE (AP) - U.S. captain Corey Pavin says Tiger Woods is high on his list to be one of his four picks for the Ryder Cup, without saying for sure he would take the world's No. 1 player.
Woods failed to finish among the top eight in the Ryder Cup standings who qualified for the American team. He tied for 28th at the PGA Championship, finishing nine shots behind Martin Kaymer at Whistling Straits.
Pavin does not have to announce his picks until Sept. 7. That gives Woods at least one more tournament to show he's improving.
Pavin says he saw plenty last week at the PGA - not only from Woods' game, but his desire to play in the Ryder Cup.
The matches are to be played Oct. 1-3 in Wales.
