Weary Woods sleepwalks his way to four Ryder Cup losses

01 October, 2018, 07:14
Fleetwood is the first European rookie to win four points in a row while he and Molinari, dubbed "Molliwood" after a sensational weekend are only the second pair to win four points from their opening four matches in Ryder Cup history.
"Yeah, I played seven out of nine weeks because I qualified for Akron and you know, all of those are big events, starting with the Open Championship", said Woods, who lost 2&1 to Jon Rahm in yesterday's singles.
"It was incredible", Molinari said.
Alongside Woods, the recent Tour Championship victor, the U.S. boasted world No.1 Johnson, a double major victor this year in Brooks Koepka, nine major winners in all, six of the world's top 10 and an average world ranking of just over 11.
Americans pulled within 10½-9½ Sunday before Europe's first singles victory came from Danish rookie Thorbjorn Olesen, who beat three-time major victor Jordan Spieth 5 and 4.
"I think anyone of us would have deserved to clinch the winning point", Molinari said, "and I was nearly hoping Sergio was going to do it because I knew he was going to become the guy with most points (in Ryder Cups)".
All 12 members of the team, which included five Ryder Cup rookies, contributed at least a point to the victory.
"I've played in my Ryder Cups, and I don't care how many matches I play in as long as we win and I think that's what it's all about".
Furyk stood by the decision - criticised by ex-European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley - of his players to stay away despite their counterparts' superior knowledge of Le Golf National making a significant difference.
Two hours later, the Italian was lifting the Claret Jug, having beaten Woods by three shots. "We've just got to tip our caps". "I knew it would be extra special if I made it", he said.
"But with these guys, I'm motivated now to work hard, to not go out on this note, and I'm motivated to play well these next two years to get back at Whistling Straits (the 2020 venue) and to show what I can do in these events, because this week was not my best".
"But, they outplayed us".
"To have a Ryder Cup end that way, for me personally, it doesn't feel very good because I didn't help my teammates earn any points", said Woods.
"Obviously there's a sour taste in our mouth to come over here now for 27 years and not be able to win on foreign soil", U.S. captain Jim Furyk said.
Woods would be the losingest player in USA history if not for Mickelson, who slipped to 18-22-7 with his two defeats this weekend.
"It was getting tight a little bit but I had belief and faith in this team that they were going to deliver and they delivered more than they should have". But as part of a team, he delivered - as always - going 2-2, including a momentum-swinging 2-up win in singles over top-ranked Dustin Johnson. He put his guys in good position.
All manner of explanations have been given over the years, none of which really apply now, if they ever did: he doesn't care; he doesn't like playing with a partner; he's terrible at team events.
"I don't usually cry, but I couldn't help it", he said after first embracing Fowler, then his wife Angela who was seen jumping up on the back of the golf cart this week while out supporting her husband.
