None of the eight Americans with Ryder Cup experience has a winning record. Woods chalks that up to the overall result. As much as Europe has been winning over the last 15 years, it’s not possible for the U.S. players who have a winning mark _ not as a team, not as individuals.

“I’ve only been part of one winning Ryder Cup team since my time in `97,” Woods said.

“We didn’t play well at the right time, and that’s just the way it goes. Hopefully, this year we’ll play well at the right time.”
