Tail of two teams
- 13 Sep 06, 05:55 PM
FLORIDA - It seems Tiger has taken the team by the tail and is ready to lead the way.
He told the press as much this week, and has revealed he has taken some of the American rookies out to dinner to make them feel comfortable with being on the team.
He also dished out some tidbits of advice to help them cope with the whole situation.
Captain Tom Lehman also said that Tiger will “Lead from the Front”. It seems that Tiger has bought into Lehman’s great desire to win back the cup and bring it back to America where it belongs!
Meanwhile, his counterpart Ian Woosnam could not find the time to bother ringing up his players prior to the selection process.
With Lehman’s top man already taking rookies out to dinner, the Europeans being favorites might be a bit of a big call.
Tiger has NEVER looked inspired at any of the four previous Ryder Cups I have covered, but if he is, then Europe better watch out.
A team room with Woods being vocal and giving encouragement to everyone has to inspire players to reach their best.
Having heard some very juicy info from the USA’s “bonding trip” to Ireland two weeks ago, I feel that for the first time ever, the Americans are going to be ready to play as ONE and NOT 12 individuals as they have in the past.
Europe here we come!!!!
