Tiger Woods was born in California, and he lives in Florida, but he has a special place in his heart for Chicago.

Woods trumpeted that Chicago is a “great sporting town,” rattling off the local professional franchises… except the Bears.

“And for us to come in here and be

part of a U.S. Team I think is just going to add to that,” he said. “We are going to have

a great atmosphere here, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”U.S. captain Davis Love III said he expects the noise on the first tee Friday to surprise the players.

“Chicago is an incredible sports town, and they are going to

be fired up,” Love said. “It’s going to be  it’s an

incredible, big golf course and a big stage, and I think the first tee could be

the loudest any of these guys have ever seen to start off a golf tournament. 


I expect a lot of passion.”

Jim Furyk noted how European fans have their chants and songs, but he noted, “I know that 37,000 Americans can
