All eyes on Texas governor as calls grow to halt execution

  All eyes on Texas governor as calls grow to halt execution AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — In his five years as Texas' governor, Republican Greg Abbott has overseen the execution of nearly 50 prisoners while only once sparing a condemned man's life.But Abbott — who has proudly referred to the death penalty as "Texas justice" — has never confronted such intense pressure to halt a lethal injection like he is facing in the case of Rodney Reed, who is set to die this month for a 1996 killing despite new evidence that even a growing number of Republican legislators say raises serious questions about his guilt.

With Tony Finau, Gary Woodland and Woods himself all seemingly locks for the American team, Captain Woods could have rounded out the squad with the eminently likable Rickie Fowler. He could have opted for a match-play specialist like Kevin Kisner. He could have taken a flier on Kevin Na, gifted a pick to longtime rival Phil Mickelson or even thrown a lifeline to Jordan Spieth.

Instead, Woods made his first winning move as captain. He put aside past differences and did what was best for U.S. teams present and future.

  Celebrities, others ask Texas to halt inmate's execution Supporters of a Texas death row inmate who is facing lethal injection in less than two weeks for a murder he says he didn't commit are mounting a final push in the courts and on social media to stop his execution, which is being called into question by lawmakers, pastors, celebrities and the European Union.

He selected Patrick Reed.

There was ample reason to go that direction, of course. Having worked his way out of a prolonged slump, Reed won a playoff event and has played consistently well around the globe, racking up 12 top-25s in his past 13 worldwide starts. In announcing the pick, Woods focused more on Reed’s passion, raving that his charge is “as fiery as they come.” That he “bleeds red, white and blue.” And that he’s a “great team guy, because when he goes out on the golf course, he’s going to give you absolutely everything he has.”

Tiger: It's time to start working on strategy, pairings

But with all of that talent comes the baggage, and what would have seemed like a formality a few years ago was complicated by Reed’s controversial comments at the 2018 Ryder Cup that put him squarely in the doghouse.

Hundreds rally at Texas Governor's Mansion in support of death row inmate Rodney Reed

  Hundreds rally at Texas Governor's Mansion in support of death row inmate Rodney Reed AUSTIN, Texas - Hundreds rallied Saturday afternoon in front of the Texas Governor's Mansion in Austin, hoping their pleas for death row inmate Rodney Reed's execution to be stayed would reach the ears of the man who has the power to do so: Gov. Greg Abbott. Standing just feet from Abbott's residence, Rodney Reed's mother, Sandra Reed, had a message for him.

Woods made the right call keeping Reed in the U . S . fold . As good as those scores have been, however, they could have been lower – at least in Reed said he missed “five or six putts” that he felt he should have made in Round 3 but didn’t. That included a three-putt from 5 feet, turning birdie into

Reed’s now-infamous interview with the New York Times may have immediately recalled Phil Mickelson’s awkward post-match news conference in 2014, but there were a few key differences. Mickelson’s disparaging remarks were aimed not at his teammates but rather a dysfunctional U.S. system, which started at the top levels of the PGA of America and trickled down to the captaincy. A respected, veteran presence like Mickelson could take the heat, knowing that he had the support of the team room. The ensuing blowback led to the formation of a task force, the Ryder Cup committee, and now a long-term plan built on cohesion and continuity.

Reed, meanwhile, simply went rogue, blaming Spieth for not wanting to play with him, criticizing 2018 captain Jim Furyk for benching him and even insinuating that Woods had apologized for playing so poorly in their two matches together. Reed said the Europeans played without egos better than the Americans ... and then, an hour after the matches, appeared selfish while deflecting blame for his 1-3 performance.

Tiger: Turning down Fowler was the toughest call to make

Predictably, those remarks didn’t sit well with U.S. team members, but a huge sports fan like Woods knows how important it is for teams to put aside their petty differences for a greater good. How teammates don’t necessarily have to like each other, but they can coexist while striving for a common goal. Great leaders recognize that, mend the relationships and then develop a plan for the future.

And so, with one pick, Woods squashed that him-against-them storyline. He brought Reed back into the fold with open arms. He signaled to the rest of the group that it's time to move on, that Reed may have made a mistake, yes, but he’s still an important part of Team USA for the next decade. That he still gives the Americans the best chance to win.

The entire U.S. roster, from the assistants to the other 10 players who grew up idolizing Woods, will undoubtedly follow the captain’s lead. Only a living legend like Woods can wield that power.

“The guys are really looking forward to embracing him and being a part of this,” he said.

And Woods made that possible by welcoming back the Americans’ most polarizing star.

That’s the mark of a great leader.
