ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “Ryder Cup comes once every 104 weeks and you play golf with these guys 103 other weeks of those two years, so it's not worth falling out for me over that one tournament. It's passionate. Of course it is. It needs to be edgy. That's what gets everyone's attention. That's what people love at home. But I think the fact that so many guys play on the same tour now, it's not us versus them. We all play a worldwide schedule, we see each other every week.

WEB GEMS:

CAN WOODS MOJO ROLL INTO THE RYDER CUP? “Looking back on my entire Ryder Cup career, that’s not something that I have really enjoyed and I’ve really liked seeing,” Woods said. “I’ve played a lot of matches. Of those seven previous Ryder Cups, I’ve sat out one session. My overall Ryder Cup record, not having won as a player since 1999, is something that hopefully we can change. We haven’t won as a U.S. squad here in 25 years on foreign soil. So hopefully, that will change this week, as well.” READ MORE>>>
