Tiger Woods has put his poor Ryder Cup performance down to tiredness, and the rigours of a demanding schedule following his dramatic comeback from injury.
The 42-year old lost all four of his Ryder Cup matches at Le Golf National last month as Europe reclaimed the trophy with a huge 17.5 to 10.5 win over the USA.
Woods had forced his way back into contention after a strong comeback that saw him earn a first PGA Tour victory at the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta on September 23.
However, the 14-time major winner said the physical toll of a first full season in several years finally caught up with him in Paris.
“It was just a cumulative effect of the entire season,” Woods told reporters on Wednesday in California.
“I was tired because I hadn’t trained for it. I hadn’t trained this entire comeback to play this much golf, and on top of that, deal with the heat and the fatigue and the loss of weight.”
It wasn’t the first time Woods has played badly in the biennial battle, where he has a record of just 13 wins against 21 losses and three halves from eight appearances – seven of them on the losing side.
