Tiger Woods apologised to US Ryder rookies

 
 

NEW YORK (AFP) - After failing to win a match at the Ryder Cup, Tiger Woods privately apologised to four first-time members of the American side after their defeat by Europe, according to a Golf Channel report on Monday.

Tim Rosaforte, a contributor to the television network, said on a morning show on the Golf Channel that Woods apologised for not earning enough points to teammates Brandt Snedeker, Webb Simpson, Jason Dufner and Keegan Bradley.

Rosaforte said he learned of the gathering from Snedeker at a charity fundraising event in Memphis, Tennessee.

"Tiger got all the rookies in a room, closed the door and personally apologised to everyone for not doing more, for not getting the points he needed to get to get a US victory," Rosaforte said.
