Tiger Woods has been just a shell of himself since news on his extramarital affairs went public. It has obviously affected his game that he has not won any major this year. Things may change after his divorce settlement. He has started hitting the ball well again although his putting needs more consistency.
The wold number one Woods did not qualify to the US Ryder Cup team but he has shown improvements lately that team captain Corey Pavin decided to give Woods one of four wild card picks to the team. The United States team is scheduled to defend the Ryder Cup early next month in Wales.
Others who made it to the wild card are Stewart Cink, Rickie Fowler and and Zach Johnson. The eight qualifiers are world number two Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Jeff Overton, Dustin Johnson, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Bubba Watson and Hunter Mahan.
