“Tiger Woods will certainly be a part of this Ryder Cup, but it remains to be seen what role he will be in,” Johnson said at a joint press conference with European captain Luke Donald.

“He loves the event and has always considered it a top priority. “This is an event that unites and represents a source of inspiration for all,” added Donald.

The two captains were talking about a tournament outside Rome at the “Year To Go” event. There, from the Temple of Venus, shot his approach to the green near the Colosseum, set symbolically for the occasion.

“I follow them both,” said Donald.

Marago added, “When a great event is over, you have to leave something on the field. To tell future generations something they can identify with.”
