Tiger Woods is having his worse Ryder Cup in years.. Tiger is win-less in this years Ryder Cup so American team captain Davis Love III let Woods play in match number 12 on the final day in a match that could literally mean nothing. The Americans could have already clinch the Cup before Tiger’s match comes to an end. Davis Love has done a good job managing Tiger Woods. He gave him the morning off on Saturday and place in a position where Woods couldn’t hurt the team on the final day. There was a time not that long ago you would send a player with Tiger Woods ability out sooner to put pressure on the European players, that wasn’t the case in the 2012 Ryder Cup.
When Woods teed off the American already had a comfortable lead over Europe and the matches that were in progress looked in favor of Love’s team. With that being said Tiger could just go out and play a nice round of golf without facing the pressures of letting the American team down.
