Tiger and Phil may not be the hottest American players heading into the 2010 Ryder Cup Matches.
However, they are still the two most accomplished golfers taking part in the matches this week at Celtic Manor.
Mickelson has always bought into the Ryder Cup, so there’s really no concern as it pertains to his commitment to the event.
Woods, on the other hand…well, let’s just say that it doesn’t take a master’s degree in psychologyto pick up on the fact that Woods has not been overly fond of the Ryder Cup matches throughout the years.
This year is different though.
Woods’ reputation is damaged and he has been humbled both on and off the golf course.
Whether he is playing well or not, Woods needs to visibly demonstrate his full support and commitment to the American side.
Every single member of the American team wants to feel accepted and supported by Tiger Woods, even if they’d take a case of the yips before ever publically admitting that.
