Tiger better deliver a Ryder Cup win

Tiger Woods may be stockpiling PGA and major wins but he's got an albatross hanging around his neck...some Ryder Cup success.

He's played in three Ryder Cups and the U.S. has won only once. His record 7-11-2 in matches. Yes, he's got a partner in most of those losses, but shouldn't the greatest golfer in the last 20 years be able to transcend his partner's play and be at least .500? He's 2-1-1 in singles matches but 2-5-1 in foursomes.

Some of his losses have come at the hands of Padraig Harrington, Colin Montgomerie, Darren Clarke, Lee Westwood, Paul Lawrie and Constantino Rocca.
Tiger has 12 major victories; the six Europeans combined have one (Lawrie winning the 1999 British Open).

Tiger's very anxious for this year's Ryder Cup in Ireland and ready to seize a leadership role with the U.S. team. Time to get rid of that albatross.
