Woods says sorry to Ryder Cup rookies
Orlando, FL, United States (4E Sports) – Tiger Woods personally apologized to the four U.S. rookies for his performance after the Ryder Cup team lost to Europe 14 1/2-13 1/2 at Medinah Country Club outside Chicago.
Appearing on the Golf Channel on Monday morning, GolfWorld magazine’s Tim Rosaforte said that Woods sat down with Keegan Bradley, Jason Dufner, Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker and apologized for not coming through to help the U.S. win back the Cup.
Woods went 0-3-1 in the 39th Ryder Cup and is 15-17-3 in his career. He did make seven birdies in Friday’s four-ball match with Steve Stricker but it was not enough to top the eight birdies and eagle by Nicolas Colsaerts, who carries Lee Westwood and to a 1-up victory in that match.
The U.S. rookies went 9-6 overall, including Bradley (3-1-0), Dufner (3-1-0), Simpson (2-2-0) and Snedeker (1-2-0).
Woods has only been a part of one U.S. victory on seven Ryder Cup teams. That win came in 1999.
