Thomas Bjorn appt as Euro RC captain all about fierce loyalty to European Tour and RC above playing record. 15 Euro wins. No US wins, majors

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Thomas Bjorn has been named Europe's Ryder Cup captain for 2018. The 45-year-old from Denmark has four times been a vice-captain for the team and three times a player -- each for a winning side. He will lead a European squad in Paris on home soil, where they haven't lost since 1993.

Prior to the Hero World Challenge, after 466 days away from competitive golf, Tiger Woods fell to 898th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Even though he finished 15th in a field of 18 golfers at the event he hosted on Sunday, Woods earned enough world ranking points (4.38) to jump all the way to 650th, a climb of 248 spots. As a frame of reference, Woods ended 2015 ranked 416th in the world and is currently one spot ahead of fellow American Brice Garnett. Had Woods won in the Bahamas, he would have vaulted up the rankings to approximately 125th in the world.
