Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (France) (AFP) - American golfers are hungry for their first Ryder Cup victory on European soil in 25 years. Tiger Woods, a 14-time major winner who snapped a five-year win drought Sunday, has been on a Cup-winning team only once in seven tries, never in Europe. Phil Mickelson has never enjoyed the feeling either since the last US triumph in Europe came in 1993 at The Belfry in England.

After a Season Full of Promise, Tiger Woods Gives Emphatic Answer to Yearlong Question: He's Back

Tiger Woods was walking down the 18th fairway as the leader on this final day of the Tour Championship, striding and smiling side-by-side with playing partner Rory McIlroy, and without any invitation besides their own joy, dozens and then hundreds of fans began thundering behind the pair in an impromptu parade that verged on stampede. By the time Woods was on the green, needing only a three-putt for victory, the throng punched the air and chanted his name, resembling less a golf crowd than a stadium of concert-goers demanding an encore. When Woods tapped home his 71st and final stroke of the day he did not unleash the balled-fist uppercut of old but instead bent calmly to retrieve his...

Such a performance is not only testimony to Woods' resolve in coming back from career-threatening injuries, but also how Woods re-worked almost his entire bag during the course of 2018, something the normally reticent-to-change Woods fully embraced. The process got into full gear with a test session last December at Medalist Club in Jupiter, Fla., and Golf Digest was on hand to watch. Woods had signed with TaylorMade nearly a year earlier, but due to injuries this was his first full-blown opportunity to try the company's gear, including its new M3 driver with Twist Face technology.
