Tiger Apologized To Ryder Cup Rookies

NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - When something as epic as last month's Ryder Cup collapse happens, news doesn't stop trickling in, and that was the case on Monday over at Golf Channel's "Morning Drive."

Tim Rosaforte, Golf Channel contributor and knower of all things internal to the golf world, spoke at length about what happened after the Americans blew a 10-6 lead on Sunday at the Ryder Cup. He mentioned something that might surprise just about everyone in the golf world: Tiger Woods actually apologized to the American rookies for the loss.

According to this report, Woods pulled Brandt Snedeker, Webb Simpson, Jason Dufner and Keegan Bradley aside and apologized for his performance at Medinah, where Woods finished with an 0-3-1 record on the week.

It is pretty interesting to hear this about a guy who normally seems disconnected from the golf world. Yes, Woods didn't earn a full point at the Ryder Cup. And yes, he is one of the many who could be blamed for the loss. But it wasn't like it was all on Woods' shoulders and he failed. Woods and playing partner Steve Stricker could never get it going together at Medinah. And the only reason that Woods didn't win a full point in his singles match against Francesco Molinari is because the Cup had already been decided and his missed three-footer on the 18th hole seemed more like a lack of concentration than a lack of trying.

Good on Tiger, and good on Snedeker for letting us know that Woods cares.
