Tiger Woods took advantage of his privilege of choice

Once again, Tiger Woods is willing to go down in history. Not content to have done it already on numerous occasions for their sports and statistical methods (the last one was to match the record of the highest number of victories of the PGA Tour, 82), now he wants to do it also on and off the field. Taking advantage of the privilege granted by his newly released position of US captain of the Presidents Cup to be able to select four players for the team, he has used the first of the elections to choose himself.

This circumstance, although striking, is fully justified by its state of form (it has won three times in thirteen months, the last one last week); his ascendant over his companions and for the fear that he infuses his rivals. The Ernie Els team, which will represent the rest of the world (except Europe) in Australia from December 13 to 15), will have one more reason to worry.

Although it is not a completely new circumstance (Hale Irwin already served as captain-player in the first edition of 1994), since then it had not been produced again. There is a lot of tension caused by the position and the need to be attentive to all parties to know how to react in the preparation of the following matches. However, this year has changed the rule that forced all players to play at least one game per day and that will allow, for example, to play only the last Saturday doubles and the first Sunday single and be able to focus on their own game.

Although the responsibility and concentration of the coach and the player when competing are very different, this duality has occurred more repeatedly in other disciplines. Thus, great historical stars of the NBA like Bob Pettit, Dave DeBusschere, Bill Russell, Lenny Wilkens or Dave Cowens combine the fields with the benches at the same time. However, since the salary limit came into operation, this practice was banned to avoid picaresque and not to distort income.

Closer in time, in 2006 and being already coach of the Ciudad Real Handball, Talant Dujshebaev returned to dress short to replace the injury of the central Uros Zorman. But where the list grows in quantity, especially in advanced ages, it is in football. When some stars were going out as soccer players, they did not hesitate to take the reins of their teams to give them leadership from the grass and the band. Those were the cases of Roberto Carlos, Nicolas Anelka and Marco Materazzi in India; of Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli at Chelsea; Kenny Dalglish in Liverpool; of Romario in Vasco de Gama or George Weah in Liberia.

But, far from seeking polemics or selfishness, Tiger Woods justified his decision with the conviction of who is looking for the best for his team. "This player has won nine Presidents and has played two of them in Australia, so it seems interesting to the captain to select him," I joke, speaking of himself in the third person. Of course, neither the public nor his companions will throw it in his face.
