    Well, if you are going on past performance, Woods' last Ryder Cup performance was dismal, and some golf experts in the press were questioning why he was even there. His physical condition now is much closer to his condition in 2012 than it is to his condition back when he was doing well at the Ryder Cup.

    The best option isn't an injured Tiger Woods.

    Tiger has been getting his *** handed to him in the Ryder Cup the last few cycles. He has lost more matches than anyone...ever. Granted, he's played in more than anyone, but his winning percentage is abysmal. Only Jim Furyk (the Matt Kenseth of golf, for you NASCAR fans. Guy loves his top 10's, but hardley ever crosses the line first) and Tom Kite are worse out of the most oft entered players. He sucks in that format, and has for years.

    Keegan Bradley, for example, while his first Ryder Cup was in '12 meaning he's relatively green, beat the crap out of people in this format. He's a team guy. Tiger? No way. Take out his individual record, and the bottom completely falls out of that appalling overall record. Nobody wants to play with him, and he doesn't want to play with anyone else.

    Long story short = no thanks Tiger. Come back when you've decided you need strange to be successful.

    Haha.

    I bet two people on this US team don't win a single point. Maybe three. The team is going to be awful and there probably won't be a chance to win when they tee off on the final session. Tiger doesn't fix that but neither does Brendan Todd.

    And Tiger had back surgery 4 months ago yet it was fine to question whether he was really hurt. FWIW, I have nothing against what Duf did, just how everyone covers every move Tiger makes way different than anyone else.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    Here's my thought:

    I say we get real technical with things and claim that Rory's full time residence is in the United States and as such he is a citizen and should only be allowed to play on Team USA. While he may be frustrated at first, he will come around to love his teammates and it will be a great underdog story.

    Hell, it worked for the Mighty Ducks-- exploiting a loophole to make Banks switch teams-- why not us?

    I say you do what any good golf team does in a competitive environment-- find a really good woman and let her play the reds.

    Walker has been good in the minor tournaments. Todd has played well lately. Reed and Moore are pluggers.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    I'd like to see Kenny Perry get some consideration. Would we really be that much worse off? Who ever Tom decides to go with, our chances seem pretty slim this time around.

    Re: Ryder Cup Captain's Picks

    The last time we won the Ryder Cup in 2008, Tiger didn't play due to injury.

    The 2008 team rookies: Anthony Kim, JB Holmes, Boo Weekly, Hunter Mahan, Ben Curtis, and Steve Stricker.

    Everyone said we would get bombed in 2008, and this team won with 1/2 the team being rookies.
