Woods: ‘I can never do enough’
Tiger Woods has defended his record in the Presidents Cup, saying that whatever he does, he can never satisfy everyone.
Tiger Woods has defended his record in the Presidents Cup, saying that whatever he does, it is never enough to satisfy everyone, Sky Sports has reported today.
With the world number one expected to win every match he plays in, anything less is often a disappointment and Woods is rarely at his best in team events. Certainly his Ryder Cup record is no more than average
In this event he has13 wins, 11 losses and one half, helping the Americans to three victories in five of the biennial events.
“Either way, I play well and it’s not enough or if I play poorly and it’s not very good,” he said.
“I don’t know how the other players feel, but certainly I have a lot of responsibilities at these Cups.”
Woods pointed to the fact that he never has an easy match and is always put up against the best the Internationals can throw at him.
“It’s one of those things where generally I’ve always played the guy who is playing the best,” Woods added.
“I’ve played against Weirsy (Mike Weir) in Canada. I played against Ernie (Els) in South Africa and Greg (Norman) in Australia.
“I’t’s either that or guys who are playing really well; like I got Goose (Retief Goosen) when he was playing well and I got Vijay (Singh) when he was playing well here.”
Woods missed last year’s victory against the Europeans in the Ryder Cup and veteran Jim Furyk believes a motivated Woods will be hard to beat.
“Tiger stood up there, said that he missed it last year, and he watched and he wanted to be here,” said Furyk.
“He’s more stressed out than the rest of us and he missed it. That let’s you know where we all are.”
