Over the last 15 years, no single golfer has dominated more than Tiger Woods.

He’s got the hardware to back it up: 14 major championships, 74 PGA Tour titles and a boatload of other victories.

But Woods has been on just one winning Ryder Cup team, missing out in 2008, when the U.S. won at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, because of a knee injury.

On Tuesday, Woods didn’t hide from his 13-14-2 Ryder Cup record.

“Certainly I am responsible

for that, because I didn’t earn the points that I was put out there for,” Woods said. “I needed to go get

my points for my team, and I didn’t do that.

Hopefully I can do that this

week, and hopefully the other guys can do the same and we can get this thing

rolling.”

Woods has played in every match in the six Ryder Cups he’s participated in, and U.S. captain Davis Love III suggested Tuesday he’ll defer to his top player to determine if he’ll sit out. But Love defended Woods’ Ryder Cup record, noting that being around .500 means “you’re pretty dang good.”

“I think it’s tough to win, first of

all,” Love said. “Tiger can play great and his partner not play well, or the other team play

extremely well. I think there’s probably a lot of times in a lot of match play

tournaments where it’s just a matter of who you’re up against.

“I know I messed Tiger up a couple

times, so I’m part of his problem,” Love jokingly said.
