Truth & Rumors: Tiger Woods apologized to Ryder rookies for poor play

Critics who charged that Tiger Woods doesn't care about the Ryder Cup are running out of fodder.
First, we hear that Tiger couldn't sleep after his team's historic collapse at the Medinah. And now we have this story about a contrite Woods apologizing to teammates for his play at the event, reported by Tim Roseforte on the Golf Channel's Morning Drive:

“Brandt [Snedeker] shared with me (at his fundraiser in Memphis) that Tiger got all the rookies in a room, closed the door and personally apologized to everyone for not doing more, for not getting the points he needed to get to get a U.S. victory," Roseforte said Monday morning. "For people who don’t think Woods really cares, whenever that turn or that pivot occurred in his career, it has fully turned.”
That's right: Tiger Woods personally apologized. Time will tell if contrition can lead to results, though: Woods's 0-3-1 record at Medinah ran his career mark to 13-17-3 in Ryder Cups.
