Tiger Woods intent on changing US Ryder Cup record

After a slow-burn start to his professional career, then a dire loss of form that left him outside the top 100 two years ago, Fleetwood has roared back to the top of the European game.

In so many of his 80 PGA Tour victories, Woods has made that walk up 18 all by himself. "I'm happy to have him on my team".

Robin Tiger Williams, 17, was born the year Woods completed his famous "Tiger Slam" when he held all four golf majors at the same time. Brooks Koepka spent the Saturday night before his first U.S. Open victory on the phone with Dustin Johnson (it wasn't a long conversation).

Asked if there was an element of intimidation to playing alongside Woods on Sunday, McIlroy, who struggled to a closing 74, joked: "That East Lake rough was really tough, yeah".

With a 7,000-seat grandstand looming over a first-tee crucible plus narrow fairways and unsafe water hazards, Le Golf National offers an impressive stage for the drama to unfold. Poulter failed again to make the Tour Championship, though his two weeks at home allowed him to prepare for Le Golf National.

"I spent 25 years playing professional golf with Tiger Woods on the scene, and any time he does anything great, that's a story". Take away singles matches - where he gets to play, you know, alone - and it's 9-16-1. That was in Dubai in 2001.

"It's nerve-wracking. You try and put your ball on that tee and it takes you a couple times to get it to settle on there", McIlroy said.

The television ratings show as much.

"I'm trying to return the text messages I've gotten, but I'm still well north of 150", Woods said.

That was the highest rating of the year this side of the majors, and the highest for the Tour Championship dating to 2000.

"There's really nothing to get underneath my skin, that's for sure", Reed said. "So for everyone in golf, it's brilliant".

Rickie Fowler hopes to help provide Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson with a "missing piece in their careers" by helping the United States to retain the Ryder Cup this weekend.

Flags were raised, anthems were played and the partisan cheers began late Thursday afternoon to signal the end of a hype and anticipation of a Ryder Cup featuring two of the strongest teams the usa and Europe have presented at the same time.

Looking back on previous Team Europe success, the Northern Ireland man also pointed to the notion that the youth of the U.S. team may just provide them with the critical edge needed, noting that the side spends a lot more time together than American sides of old. "But we respect our opponents and know what we are up against". If one player wins a hole they go "1 up" and the player that loses the hole is "1 down". "The golf course, the stands, the fans, all the buildup, being in this great city - that just adds on for it to be a really, really special occasion".

Europe has done it well over the years.

The United States' dominance at the Junior Ryder Cup continues.

He clearly relishes the charged atmosphere of a Ryder Cup, having lost only one of nine matches over his first two appearances. And that means little, as recent history would suggest. "I can't wait to hear all the little cheers and just little quirky things they can do and say, because it's always fun coming overseas and hearing all the little playful jabs and chants that they have going on".

With five rookies in their Ryder Cup team this week, Europe will need the new boys to fire, and in the charismatic Jon Rahm they may have found a man up to the task. "They are well aware of it, and they are well aware of how hard it is to win in Europe".
