Future Ryder Cup teams should leave out Tiger?

Another golf wonk who feels that the U.S. is better off without Tiger.

Does that extend to the President’s Cup as well? Even when it was in South Africa and Woods was matching Els putt for putt at dusk on Sunday?

What I’ve been getting from all these stories is this. IF indeed the U.S. is a better team sans Woods, it is not because of Tiger per se and his play, but rather the effect he has on everyone else. The points being made about Valhalla talk about how well everyone bonded, and how loose they were, not having to worry about upsetting or more likely upstaging the world’s no. 1.

It’s a fair point, though don’t expect to see Tiger withdraw again from these events, barring injury of course.
