Ryder cup too close to call, claims Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods admits it was painful to watch the European team celebrating in 2012

Tiger Woods admits it was painful to watch the European team celebrating in 2012

"The season itself has been wonderful, to be able to have played this well after coming off of what I came off of. I've come close in a couple of events and it's about putting it all together at the right time".

He didn't make it in 2014 because of his first back surgery and his ill-advised attempt to return too early.

"It's exciting to be back", said Woods. Obviously you want to be in that number one spot so you start ahead, but no matter what, with this golf course, you can make up a lot of strokes with a good round. "Yeah, it's something in my career that I definitely want to accomplish, and I think it's a big milestone, and I'm looking forward to the challenge this week where I've got a chance to do it".

The only thing left to cap off a remarkable comeback would be a trophy. He enters East Lake ranked No. 20 in the FedEx Cup standings, and knows he faces an uphill climb to win the playoffs. This year, Dustin Johnson had the most points in the regular season by 83 points over Thomas.

Woods won the FedExCup title in 2007 and 2009.

"What I've missed most about playing here is that, in order to get into this event, I would have earned my way in here in being part of the top 30 most consistent players of the year and the best players of the year", he said. He's won three tournaments on the PGA Tour this year and has a total of nine top-10 finishes. Bradley posted three top-10 finishes before the BMW Championship, where returned to the winner's circle. He has six top-10s, including two in majors, and a 69.7 scoring average. Woods had the lead on the 11th hole at the British before fading to a tie for sixth.

"You know, see how I do this time around, because I haven't ever - ever since I've played it, it's been in May and it's been Bermuda that's firm and fast".

One huge surprise the model is calling for in its 2018 Tour Championship picks: Woods, the only player to win the FedEx Cup a few times, makes a strong run but falls just short of winning the title.

"It's always been something", Woods said of what has kept him from winning this year. However, East Lake fits right into the Spaniard's grip-it-and-rip-it approach. Woods will be on the charter Sunday night to France for his first Ryder Cup since 2012.

One week before the Ryder Cup, European golf was dealt a hammer blow when the American-based PGA Tour announced an incredible increase to its FedEx Cup bonus structure - including the leading prize going up from $10 million to $15 million.
