MEDINAH, Illinois (REUTERS) - Tiger Woods will miss a Ryder Cup session for the first time in his career after United States (US) captain Davis Love III benched the former world number one for Saturday morning's foursomes at Medinah Country Club.
Woods lost both of his matches on the first day at Medinah, despite making seven birdies on his own ball as he and Steve Stricker were beaten 1 up by Belgian rookie Nicolas Colsaerts and Britain's Lee Westwood in the afternoon fourballs.
