    Tiger's record going into the Ryder Cup, 7-11-2. Look for him to play the majority of his matches with Jim Furyk. Tiger will need to be near perfect for the US to have any remote chance against Europe.

    My prediction, Europe 16.5 to 11.5.
    I know he practiced some with JJ Henry, so expect him to play with him once.

    Yeah, it was mentioned on the Golf Channel that Tiger and Henry might play fourball together, but look for Tiger and Jimmy F for alternate shot.

    Tiger is only 2-1-1 in Sunday Singles Matches, so head to head he's still mortal in the past. I look for Tiger to win his singles match, and should hopefully offer the US at least 2.5 points. Anything more than that, and I would be surprised, due to the teammate element.

    Clarke, Casey, Donald, Garcia, Harrington, Howell, Karlsson, McGinley, Montgomerie, Olazabal, Stenson, Westwood. Know thy enemy. 10 out of those 12 have been on winning European teams. Only Furyk, Mickelson and Woods have been on winning US teams. The European teams sports 2 rookies, Karlsson and Stenson. The US has 4: Henry, Johnson, Taylor, and Cincinnati's own Brett Wetterich. The US has a combined career record of 31-39-10. Europe's is 75-42-21. That's kind of staggering to me. Call me un-patriotic, but I just don't see a US victory over at The K Club.

    The US needs some new blood, cause a lot of the old blood hasn't been getting it done. Sometimes youth and inexperience hurt, but sometimes it is oblivious to the pressure. It will be fun to watch.

    I agree. I think having the rookies there will be a good thing. This might be the first time in a few decades where the Europeans actually have the better talent from top to bottom. They should be favored to win this one.

    Re: Tiger vs. Jack

    Did anyone notice, when they asked him what he would be doing if he wasn't a golfer, he said he would be a Navy SEAL? At first I was kind of shocked, and thought "a golfer making it as a SEAL?" But after thinking about it more, he probably would make it, he has the focus and determination, also he went to Harvard so he's not stupid. I just thought that was funny.

    Who is he?

    If you're referring to Tiger, he went to Stanford for two years.

    And his father was a Green Beret in Viet Nam. Earl was also the first black man to play baseball in the Big 8 conference.

    Sorry I was kind of, what do you call it, oh yeah drunk when I posted this. Yes I was talking about Tiger, and I don't know why I put Harvard. And I knew his Father was in the military, but I did not know that he was a Green Beret. That provides a little more insight as to why Tiger would want to go into special forces.

    That's better than it usually is after the 4 ball matches. If the Americans can keep it within 1.5 points after the afternoon matches, they have a shot.

    Tiger/Furyk won their morning match 1 up.
