Call me crazy but I strongly believe Tiger does not want to play in the Ryder Cup or President's Cup. I don't blame him. Intimidating professional athletes to "play for your country" is wrong plain and simple. When Tiger said he thought the players should at least be able to give some money to their favorite charity he caught a lot of flack. Tiger is cheap and it likely gripes him that empty suits make millions off these events and he gets nothing but criticism if they lose.

There are quite a few other people who don't believe Tiger likes playing in Ryder or President's Cup either. The team ethos plays havoc with his normal preparation and routines. He can't give of his best under those circumstances, which must irk him. I don't think it is a serious blow to the US team with his record.

Playing at Valhalla, Paul Azinger's selection changes, a list of in-form players just dying to get on the team (e.g. Perry)for the US against injuries, poor form of previous stalwarts (Monty, Harrington, McGinley, Clarke, Casey, etc) and dissent in the European camp - what more do you want?

I believe Tiger likes it. However, for many reasons it's harder for him to be as successful in this arena as he normally is. If you look at his singles record, you'll see that with out the effect of his own partner, as well as the inspired play of the opposing duo, he is very dominant. Having said that, he'd much rather win Major championships than Ryder Cups. He LOVES that.

Had I specifically mentioned Anthony Kim, I'd might look like I know something.
