Tiger says he shouldn't be in Ryder Cup team on current form

6:40 pm on 9 August 2010

The world's number one golfer Tiger Woods says his current form doesn't warrant his selection in the United States Ryder Cup team to face Europe in Wales this October.

Woods finished tied for second to last at the Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio, carding 18 over par for the event, his worst-ever career performance.

Woods' number one ranking is hanging by a thread with compatriot Phil Mickelson on the brink of taking his place at the top of world golf, and Woods concedes at the moment he doesn't deserve his spot in the US team.
