On Saturday morning, Tiger Woods rode the pine for the first time in a Ryder Cup. And, after going 0-2 Friday, Woods was OK with it, according to Ryan Lavner of the Golf Channel.
“That was the plan going into these matches,” Woods said Saturday night. “I put so much effort into that last match yesterday afternoon (a 1-up fourballs loss to Nicolas Colsaerts and Lee Westwood), and I was pretty spent. It was nice to get a little bit of rest.
“This is way different than the Presidents Cup when you have four days. Five matches in three days is a lot, and hey, I’m not young anymore. I’m one of the older guys. It’s nice to get a little bit of rest.”
