Tiger Woods apologizes to Ryder Cup rookies

See ... Tiger Woods does care.
In the aftermath of the Americans' stunning collapse at Medinah, Tiger Woods spoke privately to the team's rookies — Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker, Webb Simpson and Jason Dufner — and apologized for not earning enough points, according to Golf Channel contributor Tim Rosaforte.

Appearing on "Morning Drive," Rosaforte revealed, "Brandt shared with me (at his fundraiser in Memphis) that Tiger got all the rookies in a room, closed the door and personally apologized to everyone for not doing more, for not getting the points he needed to get to get a U.S. victory. For people who don't think Woods really cares, whenever that turn or that pivot occurred in his career, it has fully turned."
If the Ryder Cup didn't mean anything to Tiger, then why did he accept responsibility for Team USA's losing record over the last decade? Further, if he didn't care about the Ryder Cup, why would he agree to play in the event in the first place? The Ryder Cup doesn't pay anything and Tiger's only career focus is to break Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major championships.

The only reason to apologize to a teammate is if one did not give it his all. Otherwise, you play your best and sometimes you still get beat. That is golf. I don't know if I like this new Tiger.

Beef, I think that Tiger should have appologized for his performance. As high as he is ranked and being one of the greatest players ever to pick up a club, he should be able to pick up more than a half point.
