Tiger Woods as Final Ryder Cup Pick or Buying Taylor Made Golf, Which Rumor is Best?

There are two rumors running rampant around the internet involving Tiger Woods.

1.Tiger Woods will be the 12th and final 2016 Ryder Cup pick made by Captain Davis Love III

It all started as a harmless joke (we think) made by Matt Kuchar after the first round of captain’s picks were made. Now the internet rumor mill is churning and golf fans everywhere are getting behind it.

2.Tiger Woods is in “serious” negotiaton to buy Taylor Made Golf

Nike ditched their golf equipment business so they could focus on what they do well: make people drool over shoes and clothing. The world knows Woods was the Nike guy but with the company’s exit he’ll be looking for a new club. Instead of using someone else’s, perhaps he will be making and distributing his own line?

Which is rumor is more plausible? On one hand Tiger IS returning this year to play golf AND he’s already a member of the Ryder Cup, albeit a staff member not a player. On the other hand, he’s in the market for new clubs and he’s a bazillionaire. Only time will tell…
