Tiger Woods says he does ‘not like’ personal Ryder Cup record
Tiger Woods’s Ryder Cup record went from bad to worse when he lost two more matches yesterday despite many expecting the reformed star to shine in the team format.
The second most prolific major champion of all time now has nine wins, 19 losses and one halved match in Ryder Cup fourball and foursomes.
He has now lost seven consecutive times in the team format but on his three defeats at Le Golf National, Woods believes he has played better than the results suggest.
“Just pretty pissed off, the fact that I lost three matches, and didn’t feel like I played poorly,” he said.
