Despite the absolute pathetic performances by Tiger Woods over the past four tournaments (two missed cuts and a withdrawal), Ryder Cup Captain, Tom Watson is considering Tiger for the team. He says it all depends on what Tiger says about his game, not how he’s played or will play.

Actually, that is good logic from Watson. If it was based on how he is playing and his history in the Ryder Cup, Tiger wouldn’t be in the discussion.

In effect, Watson is saying that if Tiger feels good about playing, he’s in. It seems the Captain has forgotten that Tiger has proclaimed himself pain free and having wonderful practice session before the last three tournaments. His best finish was 52nd at the British Open.

When you cut through Watson’s comment that “he would be a real asset to the team,” it really comes down to this: TV ratings.

If the network money boys want him on the team, Tom doesn’t have a vote.
