It is unclear whether Tiger Woods really wanted to become a Navy Seal, but certain is that he played Army golf Friday morning: left-right, left-right.

Woods has a day to forget in losing 2 matches

Tiger Woods played so poorly losing his first match, Davis Love III might have been tempted to sit him down Friday afternoon in the Ryder Cup.

Five best partnerships in the Ryder Cup

The best players don't always make the best partners in the Ryder Cup. It worked for Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson, not so much for Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. U.S. captain Hal Sutton made partners out of Woods and Mickelson, rivals on and off the golf course, and the experiment failed miserably as they lost both matches. Overlooked was the fact that Woods was in the middle...
