Love: Tiger wants Ryder spot

Woods is down to 172 in the world after another poor performance at the Memorial last weekend. He plummeted to the bottom of the field following his disastrous 13-over 85 on Saturday, one of the most humbling experiences of his stellar career.

Love III is in regular contact with the former world No 1 and says that Woods is frustrated rather than downhearted with the state of his game. And Love says Woods wants to make the team for the Presidents Cup in October, and then next year’s Ryder Cup team.

???He???s positive ??? he???s making progress. That???s what I like to hear from him. He???s not frustrated other than he???s not coming (good) as quickly as he wants,??? Love told Sky Sports.

???He is focused making the Presidents Cup team right now.

???We???ve talked about playing some practice rounds. He is ???all hands on deck ???as usual. He???s working hard and pushing hard. Sometimes that???s his problem ??? he works a little too hard and tries a little too hard.

???I like his attitude ??? he???s still having fun with it. You can see it in his interviews. You can see it in his text messages and his conversations. He???s laughing at himself a little bit.???

Love says he is hoping Woods qualifies for the US team for next year???s Ryder Cup.

???He wants to and I want him to as well. He sent me an idea the other day about the Ryder Cup. He is focused on the Ryder Cup ??? and he???s focused on making Jay Haas??? Presidents Cup team. He wants to get his game back.???
