Don't miss a moment of Ryder Cup drama
In a game played on an individual basis, it seems only apt that on the rare occasion when golf becomes a team sport, the Ryder Cup should still come down to individuals.
There is no doubt that the 39th matches in Chicago this week will be a stage set for both Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods.
McIlroy will spearhead the European challenge as they attempt to continue their recent dominance of the Ryder Cup. And Woods will hope to finally live up to his billing as the talisman of the United States team.
It’s this sub-contest that will make for a very intriguing Ryder Cup. Woods may well be the greatest player of his generation and an unquestionable force in the Majors, but he remains the best player never to have performed at the Ryder Cup.
Since his debut in the 1997 Ryder Cup, the US has won just once with him on the team, and that was in 1999.
So Woods is at a definite crossroads in terms of the Ryder Cup.
Counting in his favour will be that he has tasted success at Medinah’s No 3 course, having won the 1999 and 2006 PGA Championships there.
Counting against him will be the weight of past Ryder Cup performances, and a young Irishman playing the best golf of his life.
SuperSport will be broadcasting all of the action live.
