Tiger Woods to sit out a Ryder Cup session for first time in his career

Tiger Woods will not have to pull out his driver on Saturday morning at Medinah, as he sits out a Ryder Cup session for the first time in his career.

"We just don't want guys to be worn out," U.S. captain Davis Love III said, according to Steve DiMeglio of USA Today. "We need Tiger and Steve (Stricker) in the afternoon. We need Tiger and Steve on Sunday. I think Tiger needs a rest. Steve needs a rest. I need a rest. And, you know, it's a team effort, and Tiger and Steve are very supportive friends of mine.

"They told me they would do whatever I asked them to do, and I can guarantee you, neither one of them are very happy about it. Not because they are sitting out; because they have to wait till (Saturday) afternoon to come back."

Love will send out the teams of Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson, Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson, and Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker for Saturday's foursomes matches.
