That is the view of the United States captain Jim Furyk, who announced his three automatic picks for the Ryder Cup.
Woods – who was previously named vice captain – will be competing in the most prestigious team events for the first time since 2002.
The former world No 1 will have to relinquish his vice captaincy role, but he will be part of a US side that has had plenty of experience and of course Major winners, including Brooks Koepka who won the US Open and USPGA Championship this year.
Woods, meanwhile, enjoyed an incredible resurgence on the PGA Tour following his recovery from back surgery.
And Furyk has offered an insight into the workings of Woods’ mind.
“I think we’re all excited,” Furyk said speaking at a key Ryder Cup announcement in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
“Tiger and I spent time as partners and a lot of time as Vice Captains strategising and discussing pairings.
“I’m not sure he sleeps very often!
“I can attest to the amount of texts Davies Love has received.
“It’s been great to have his help and to get a little feel of one of the best minds in the game.”
Woods was joined by Phil Mickelson – a captain’s pick for the first time.
Woods’ demeanour was much changed from one on Monday when he declined an interview after his final round at the Dell Technologies Championship.
The 14-time major champion was furious after falling apart on Monday and saw his challenge fade.
