(Reuters) - United States Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III on Wednesday appointed 14-times major winner Tiger Woods as one of his vice-captains for next year's Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National in Chaska, Minnesota.

Woods, 39, is a veteran of seven Ryder Cups as a player, most recently in 2012 under Love's captaincy, and is battling to recover from a nagging back injury that led him to undergo two surgeries over the past two months.
