Woods ready for Ryder Cup challenge
Question of the Day
Interrupting an otherwise dull press conference Tuesday, Woods fired back at a comment Rory McIlroy made six weeks ago that “I would love to face” the world’s No. 1 player in the Ryder Cup unless his game rapidly improved.
Asked for a reaction, Woods leaned into the microphone and said only, “Me, too.”
The quote from McIlroy _ the closest thing to bulletin board material at Celtic Manor _ came the week after Woods‘ golf reached a low point in a dismal season. He had the highest score of his career and beat only one player in the 80-man field at Firestone.
“I’m fine. I’m all right,” said the 21-year-old from Northern Ireland. “You’ve got to realize, I said those things the week after he had just shot 18 over at Akron, so he wasn’t playing too well at the time.”
Singles rarely has been a problem for Woods or the other top American players. Woods, Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk _ the core of the U.S. team since 1997 _ collectively have won 125 times on the PGA Tour, including 19 majors.
That hasn’t carried over into the Ryder Cup.
Maybe that explains why they all have losing records, and have played on losing teams.
