“I’m honored, I really am,” Cook said at PGATour.com. “I think I can help.”
“Certainly my relationship with Tiger probably was an issue that helped Fred make his decision, that we’re very close.”
Despite Tiger’s struggles to regain the form that led to 14 major wins in a little more than a decade, Cook remains a bullish supporter.
“I believe in what he’s doing … there’s not many people that believe in what he’s doing right now,” Cook said. “Maybe he’ll relax a little bit knowing he’s got a compadre there that really cares about him, genuinely, as a friend.”
The Presidents Cup begins in two weeks at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia.
