Matt Kuchar is a professional golfer hailing from the United States of America who is a member of the US PGA Tour.
Kuchar has won seven titles on the US PGA Tour in a professional career that has spanned twelve years. He briefly enjoyed lot of success during the early 2000s but he suffered a dip in form and struggled to maintain his status as a member of the US PGA Tour. But he managed to rediscover his touch, rejuvenating himself with a new and one plane swing and came back stronger from 2008 and this led to improved results for him on the Tour.

Much to the delight of all his connoisseurs, Tiger Woods is back with strength but it’s his poor swing that is worrying him. The player had a tough time this year with surgery and injuries keeping him weak and off the field. However, the iconic golfer had been working hard in gym lately which has helped in enhancing the strength quotient as he is gearing to bounce back actively from December.
“We are quite past strength phase at present& currently my strength is back where it is supposed to be”, remarked Woods at the famous Isleworth Golf and Country Club – the club where he had spent the initial fifteen years of pro career. “Currently I am just required to have my speedy twitch going & get back my speed- which would be taking good time. That is the part of my 2nd training phase which is coming up right now.”
Tiger had his 5th surgery in twenty years- this year on back- & failed to score at a PGA event for 3rd in past 5 years.
Current world # 1 McIlroy (Rory) referred to Phil Mickelson and Woods as being on final holes of career while he was questioned when whether the best 2 golfers would be actually eligible for Tour Championship event for the 1st time from 1992. Rory was just noting the ages of the two golfers – Woods is 38 & Phil is 44- & their injuries. It was the “final few holes” part of his comment which turned into some internet sensation soon. While the Irish star was asked whether he feels it necessary to explain the remarks to the former # 1, he laughed saying-“ I have said even worse on his face.”
“I though it’s funny”, Woods remarked.
It hasn’t even been a week since the United States suffered yet another humbling defeat in the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles but the USPGA has already started a complete overhauling of the current system in place.
Ted Bishop, the president of the USPGA has told the media that the association is looking into the option of creating a special task force that will look into the entire system of operations of the Ryder Cup which will have a say in everything, starting from how the captains are chosen to the selection of the final twelve members in the team.
Bishop said that he intends to give this task force a completely blank canvas and hope it can give the PGA some input. He also mentioned that the PGA is willing to take a step back from the action and listen to the advice of people who are directly involved in the action.
There have been reports that the likes of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will find places in this task force and will have a huge say in how things go about from now on.
Bishop did mention that there will be around ten to twelve members in the task force and most of them will be past or present players, and while he did not wish to name any potential member, sources do indicate the presence of Mickelson and Tiger Woods as well as Davis Love III.
Mickelson has been very vocal about his criticism of the current debacle of the US team in the Ryder Cup and although Tiger Woods was not a part of the side that lost the third consecutive Ryder Cup to Europe, the 14 time major winner is still the most sought after golfer in the world and the USPGA will turn to him.
