U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson wants Tiger Woods to take a leadership role next year when the American golfers seek to reverse their recent poor record against Europe.The United States has won only one of Woods's seven appearances in the biennial team competition since the world's top-ranked player made his debut in 1997. Still, according to Watson, the 14-time major winner's status in the game puts him in an influential position among his teammates."We need him to be a leader, there's not a question about that," Watson said Tuesday at a press conference with European captain Paul McGinley at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland, site of the 2014 Ryder Cup. "I don't care who you are, if you don't look up to Tiger Woods, what he's accomplished in his career and say, 'I want to play like Tiger Woods,' you don't know what you're talking about."Watson said it was "special" to have Woods on the team and compared it to his playing days when he'd be teamed with 18- time major champion Jack Nicklaus at the event.
