Tiger Woods not guaranteed Ryder Cup berth, Corey Pavin says

Nothing is a lock for Tiger Woods any more. Nothing good anyway.

Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin, interviewed on the eve of the PGA Championship, said Woods isn't a lock for one of the four captain's picks for the U.S. Ryder Cup team if he fails to earn an automatic berth.

"Nobody is promised any picks," Pavin said, according to a tweet by Edgar Thompson of the Palm Beach Post. Pavin, according to Thompson, is "looking at as many as 20 players, adding Tiger is 'very high on the list.' "

Things are so rock-bottom bad for Woods (and the golf world) right now that he might take any little wisp of hope he can get.

Like learning that he's paired with Vijay Singh in the first round of the PGA, with an 8:20 a.m. (CDT) tee time Thursday at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.

Woods and Singh have been paired together 25 times over the years, Ron Furlong of The Bleacher Report writes and Woods has bested him 18 times.

So, if you're Woods, there's that. Which is nice.

Yeah, but what is the record on Thursdays closer to new moon than full moon with the breeze blowing from the north?
