    Tiger Woods announced that he has withdrawn his name from consideration for the U.S. Ryder Cup team. In addition to costing Woods a shot to represent the United States he will also be forced to stop playing golf during a very lucrative part of his golf calendar.

    Woods announced that he will not return to competitive golf until his World Challenge in Orlando, Florida, early in December.

    That means Woods will also miss the America’s Golf Cup in Argentina as well as at least two corporate exhibitions in Asia.

    Woods was scheduled to partner with Matt Kuchar for the inaugural team event in Argentina.

    A spokesman claimed that Woods would not receive an appearance fee for the event since it is being operated by the PGA Tour Latinoamérica. However, Bob Harig of ESPN.com reported that Woods was expected to receive "a hefty appearance fee," while Ewan Murray of The Guardian suggested Woods would have received $4 million for showing up.


    It's over Johnny

    Most likely going to be a bad year for the US anyway, the top five players in the world are all Euros.

    True enough, the Euro team is strong. They look poised to dominate.

    Truthfully, I'm glad Tiger is out of the competition, he hasn't played consistently well lately.

    He'll have a few decent rounds but, then, fall back into his same old scattering of his tee shots.

    Also, his putting is atrocious.

    He withdrew to avoid the humiliation of not being picked. Oh, and he sucks too

    Exactly. That's the only reason he played in the PGA last weekend, so he could get picked.

    He needs to lay off the white women and date a sister. White women are like Kryptonite to him.
