In an interesting turn of events, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are Ryder Cup Teammates this year. According to The USAToday.com,Woods was selected Tuesday as an at-large member of the U.S. team, as were Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.

The Ryder Cup is a tournament that occurs semi annually and pits a team from the U.S. against an opponent team from Europe. The U.S. won its last Ryder Cup in 2016.

Tiger did not play on that team, however was a part of that team as “vice captain“. Mickelson DID play that year. This will mark Mickelson’s 12th time playing in the Ryder Cup. Woods has played 7 times, but has not appeared since 2012.

Tiger is quoted as saying that making the team was one of his main goals this year, saying as the year progressed he gained traction and somehow got some high finishes to help him make the team.

Woods and Mickelson also have a head to head match coming up later this year over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Lets see if being teammates at the Ryder Cup helps them become a little more supportive of each other in their November match.

This years Ryder Cup will be held in France on September 28t thru September 30th.
