MEDINAH, Ill. (AP) — Tiger Woods played so poorly losing his first match, Davis Love III might have been tempted to sit him down Friday afternoon in the Ryder Cup.
The way Woods' day ended encircled by thousands of fans in the dusk at Medinah Country Club, he might have wished Love had.
A 12-footer that scraped the left edge of the cup on the final hole left Woods bent over in agony, a big loser again on the first day of the Ryder Cup. With it, a European team beaten badly in every other afternoon match suddenly had some hope for the weekend.
It goes down as two losses in two matches for Woods and playing partner Steve Stricker. But the difference in the two rounds was night and day.
