U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Corey Pavin will talk to Tiger Woods at next month's PGA Championship to learn whether he wants to be on his team at Celtic Manor in Wales in October.

Woods is seventh in the points table that will provide eight automatic members for the United States against Europe.

However, he could drop down the standings and need a wild card if the likes of Ricky Barnes and Hunter Mahan outperform him at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship in August.

Talk to Tiger? Is he going to ask, "Do you want to play?" or will he ask "Can you play?" How about "CAN YOU WIN?" Excuse me, but Tiger's Ryder record at his peak ain't so hot, and now with his life all messed up, what should we expect? A pouting putter, that's what.

But, Pavin better have a pow-wow with some others, too; Besides the Toothless Tiger, we have Foldin' Phil and Cripple Kim - what a great team of leadership to send out against the Euros. I probably won't watch much because the Ryder is not as much about golf as it is beating the Euros and I am worried about that...
