DL3: Tiger, Stricker 'might be tired of playing together'

Let's hope they can still be friends.

In an interview with Golf.com, Presidents Cup assistant captain Davis Love III suggested that the longtime international match play pairing of Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker could be headed for a breakup.

We’ll have some of the same pairings, but I think you’ll see some differences from what we did at the Ryder Cup. Woods and Stricker, they’ve enjoyed playing together, but I think they might be tired of playing together.

Woods, who has had over a dozen partners in Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup competition over the years, seemed to have finally found his match in Stricker. The duo carried a 6-2 record into the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah, where they suffered three consecutive defeats against teams of Ian Poulter/Justin Rose, Lee Westwood/Nicolas Colsaerts and Sergio Garcia/Luke Donald.

Love said that captain Fred Couples "already knows who he's going to play together" at Muirfield Village, but the rest of us will just have to wait and see.

Who do you think should play with Tiger? Tell us.
