Els knows good and bad of playing Royal Melbourne
Thursday’s play has six foursomes (alternate shot) matches, followed by six fourball (better-ball) matches on Friday; five foursomes and five fourballs on Saturday and 12 singles matches on Sunday.
That’s 34 matches, with 17 1/2 points ensuring a win for either team.
Woods said Tuesday he liked what he saw in the practice round from Stricker, who has not competed since Sept. 25 at the Tour Championship because of a neck injury affecting the strength in his left arm.
“Hopefully, we’ll get put out there together,” Woods said. “I know that we feel very comfortable with one another and we were talking about it today. There’s a certain comfort level about each other’s games.”
He added, however, that the pairings for the week have not been decided.
“A lot of pairings have not been set in stone,” Woods said. Ultimately, it’s up to U.S. captain Fred Couples.
Stricker, meanwhile, could easily partner someone like Hunter Mahan. If that’s the case, it likely would be in foursomes, which could still leave intact the formidable Woods-Stricker tandem for fourballs.
“It’s already done,” Woods said about the ongoing saga. “I addressed it last week and I said life goes forward, not backward.”
And there was only one mention of Woods being a captain’s pick despite not having won in two years.
“Fred could have picked anybody, and I’m thankful that he had faith in me to be a part of the team,” Woods said. “A lot of the players wanted me on the team, as well. So that part definitely did feel good.”
