As a result of Tiger Woods‘ marital infidelities coming to light, the most acclaimed and professional golfer may not make it to the American Team that plays Ryder Cup playoffs. The Cup matches will begin from 1st to 3rd October, 2010 at The Celtic Manor Resort situated in City of Newport, Wales. But the American team captain Corey Pavin just like other golf observers is eager to know whether Woods will come back to original form to become the most dominating golfer. In addition the captain has also commented on his recent form in golf and was quoted saying that if woods fails to improve on his game this summer then he might lose his spot in the Ryder cup 2010 US team. Tiger Woods has appeared in each and every Ryder Cup editions representing America since from 1997. But he missed the 2008 edition, as he underwent knee surgery and it would be bad if he misses the second Ryder cup event.
Currently Tiger Woods is placed at 11th position in US Ryder Cup 2010 Standings. The top eight leaders in point list would automatically qualify for team position while the captain needs another four players. On the other hand woods wasn’t a force to reckon with in this Cups as one would expect from the best player in World. Even without tiger woods, the American team has posted huge marginal victories. Despite wood’s outstanding success in PGA Tours or other major championships, he had marginal success in Ryder matches.
Tiger wood first competed in Ryder Cup during 1997 and could garner 1.5 points after competing in each and every match while partnering with Mark O’Meara. In singles match he was defeated by Costantino Rocca. In 1999 there was no improvement as he was able to earn only two points from all the matches even after partnering with several golfers. During 2002 Ryder cup matches he lost both golf matches held on Friday and then partnering alongside Davis Love III he could muster two points for the American team. Later he was slated to play a pivot role especially in singles match as both teams had eight points. But the European team took early lead and woods match with his competitor Jesper Parnevik had no importance, so they halved the golf match.
In 2004 Ryder cup playoff tiger woods was paired with lefty, Phil Mickelson and lost both matches. On the next day he earned a point with the American team facing a deficit of 6 points. Later he won his first one to one match but it wasn’t enough for the team to emerge victorious. At the end of this season Wood has totaled eight points from twenty matches alongside posting a golf record 7-11-2. Tiger gave his best performance in 2006 from five appearances when he was paired to Jim Furyk for pair matches. Both the golfers won two of their four matches. Then woods won his singles match and became one of the three Americans to win a match for that day. During that week he earned three points by winning other matches. Next year he completely missed Ryder cup competition as he was recovering from a left knee surgery.
But most of the golf observers want Tiger woods to play in this edition of Ryder Cup, though they agree that he hasn’t had a good record. Most Americans still think that he can translate his form by playing more number of golf matches that would motivate him for more. In addition it will take some time for him to come out of controversies so that he can focus on golf matches. Nothing is greater than playing for the nation, so Woods has to earn his spot in the US Ryder Cup team by playing his natural game. Only the time will tell whether he will be playing fine (if selected) in Ryder Cup or miss the event because of an injury.
