Golf-Woods rules himself out of Ryder Cup

Aug 13 (Reuters) - Tiger Woods has ruled himself out of contention for a Ryder Cup wildcard pick due to lingering back problems, the former world number one said in a statement on Wednesday.

Woods, who had surgery in March to treat a pinched nerve in his back, asked U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson not to consider him for the biennial team competition against Europe next month. (Reporting by Mark Lamport-Stokes in Los Angeles; Editing by Frank Pingue)
