    U.S. captain Tiger Woods used one of his four wild-card selections on himself Thursday (Friday, Manila time) and will become the first playing captain in the Presidents Cup since Hale Irwin in the inaugural edition 25 years ago.

    The decision was hardly a surprise.

    Woods is the Masters champion and two weeks ago tied the PGA Tour record with his 82nd career victory at the Zozo Championship in Japan. He is No. 6 in the world ranking.
