Tiger Woods (USA)

Tiger Woods

Ryder Cup appearances: 6 Match record (W/L/H): 12/14/2 Point percentage: 46% A successful Ryder Cup is the one glaring omission from Tiger's CV, as he missed the US victory in 2008 and underperformed at Brookline nine years earlier. Much used to be made about his supposed inability to gel with a team, but in fairness Woods has contributed plenty in recent matchplay contests. This summer has seen him recapture a long game that is not far off his best, but his putting is unrecognisable from the glory days. He remains a pivotal player but with the strongest US team in a generation at his captain's disposal, Tiger is no certainty to play the full five match quota this time.
