Falling apart

Tiger Woods has admitted that he might skip this year’s Ryder Cup after he finished the worst tournament performance of his career, and 18-over nightmare at the Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

Woods shot four rounds over par, including a seven-over for his last, which left him 78th out of 80 and leading the pack in both bogeys and double bogeys (22 and three, respectively). It’s easy to see why he would want to omit himself from this year’s clash against the Europeans, and he made it clear that his game simply isn’t up to it at the moment.

‘Not playing like this, definitely not, not playing like this,’ said Woods. ‘I wouldn't help the team if I'm playing like this. No one would help the team if they're shooting 18 over par.

‘I need to hit the ball better, I need to chip better, I need to putt better, and I need to score better. Shooting 18 over par is not fun. I don't see how it can be fun shooting 18 over, especially since my handicap is supposed to be zero. It's been a tough year.’
