"This is a totally different team, totally different players. You know, we could have a different core of guys. Obviously we have a lot of guys in their 20s that have made the last couple teams," Woods said in a press conference Tuesday.

"We'll see what happens. We have to figure out some logistical things between now and then. That's one of the reasons why I'm here, to try and figure that out. We've got a few meetings here scheduled later today, and try and get a better plan going forward so that we can get the best field we can at the Hero, as well as getting everyone here from the Bahamas to this tournament, get them rested, getting them prepared and getting them ready to play and compete."

Woods said this past Ryder Cup - where he was both a player and a vice captain - gave him a glimpse of his challenges ahead.

He was "honored to be a vice captain, and that evolved into playing, being a part of the team, and (Team USA captain Jim Furyk) felt that my role would be better - it would be better for me to be focused on playing, and so, yeah,"

"Next year, I'll be a captain, so I'm going to have to defer a lot of information to my vice captains and get a lot of their opinions and also my team, whether or not I can play and do both roles," he added.

"It's the same golf course. It could be fast, it could be hot, it could be cool. You just never know. We experienced all of those things here in '98 as well as in '11," he said.

"I wanted to see if they've changed any of the holes. It's going to be the same rotation. They've lengthened a couple of the holes. But I mean, nothing major. Normally over the course of time, a lot of golf courses get modernized, get lengthened, change different angles, add bunkers, whatever it may be, but they haven't done that at Royal."

When he spoke late Sunday afternoon after a four-shot victory in the Bahamas, the Masters was still 130 days away. That's the next major, and majors are the greatest achievement for any player. Rahm is no exception. But yes, that Ryder Cup was special.
