Woods' fine form alarms Montgomerie
Tuesday 13 October 2009
Colin Montgomerie yesterday confessed Tiger Woods's 100 per cent performance in last week's Presidents Cup will make it more difficult for Europe to regain the Ryder Cup next year.
The world No 1 won five out of five matches and holed the winning putt as the US beat the Rest Of The World team 19-14. The fact that Woods beat YE Yang, his USPGA conqueror, in Sunday's singles only highlighted his contribution.
"Tiger seems to have this team game down to a tee now as well as the individual game," said Montgomerie. "There's never been a European who has won five out of five in the Ryder Cup, so that proves what a feat it is.
"It will be difficult enough to win without Tiger in that sort of form. I've said it before, but it will make it a better win for us if we can regain the Ryder Cup with Tiger Woods in it."
