Woods apologizes for Ryder Cup failure
The idea of Tiger Woods being more of a lone wolf than team player has taken a battering today, with the news that the 14-time-major winner has apologized to the US Ryder Cup team for his performance in the side's loss to Europe last month.

"It didn't set in for me for a few days as to what happened in Medinah," said Woods, who has won 15 and lost 17 of his 35 Ryder Cup matches.

"I had two sick kids I had to care for and they also had to go to school. They had fevers and I was focused on them for a couple of days.

"I then started to talk to my friends and team-mates, and once it all started to sink in - and the position we had been in and what transpired - yes, it was tough for a couple of days."

Woods gathered together the four rookie members of the team including Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker, Webb Simpson and Jason Dufner to say sorry after going 0-3 in team play and halving the final singles against Francesco Molinari.

"[Woods] personally apologized to everyone for not doing more, for not getting the points he needed to get a US victory," Tim Rosaforte from the Golf Channel said.

"For people who don't think Woods really cares, whenever that turn or that pivot occurred in his career, it has fully turned."
