Tiger Woods Stinks!
So do Phil Mickelson and Davis Love III. Tiger and Phil lost both their Ryder Cup matches today, 2&1 and 1-up. How does that happen?

Woods commented on his morning loss -
"We just didn't make enough birdies," Woods said. "I mean, geez, they made eight birdies in 14 holes and birdied six of the first eight holes. That is awfully impressive.

"But we were right there. We were only one down. I thought we could, if we could get it to even somehow, that might turn the momentum. We never got it to even."
Come on, Tiger, there's two of you. Shouldn't you be able to make birdies as well as you make excuses? By the way, you were one down after 11. Then you were 2 down, and then 3 down after 14. So you weren't really that close.

In the afternoon, Tiger and Phil did have a lead - 3 up through 5 - and choked it away. Bogeying the final hole to lose the match, 1-up. They had one birdie and 4 bogies for the round.

Davis Love III heaved all over his shoes on the way to a 5&4 loss (with Chad Campbell) in the morning. And then "recovered" to lose (with Fred Funk) 4&2 this afternoon. Sit him down, Hal!

Thankfully, we have Chris Riley and Chris Demarco playing. Riley and Stewart Cink got the only half-point from the morning matches. And DiMarco and Jay Haas were the lone American winners all day (3&2). Play those guys, please.
