Rory McIlroy obviosly is looking forward to the Ryder Cup in October and hopes to be matched against a struggling Tiger.

"I'm sure we'll probably see him [Tiger Woods] in Wales," added McIlroy.

"I would love to face him. Unless his game rapidly improves...I think anyone in the European team would fancy their chances against him."

McIlroy is not convinced that he deserves to be one of Corey Pavin's Ryder Cup picks but the fully expects Tiger to be in the US team.

"There are a lot of American players playing better than him at the minute but it's always an advantage to have Tiger Woods in your team.

"I think he'll [Pavin] pick him. I don't think it would go down too well in the States if he wasn't picked."

Well lets hope he gets what he wishes for just like Sergio, Stephen Ames, Woody Austin, Rory Sabbatini, etc.

Can't say I blame him. I mean you get in the spotlight instantly and have a chance to beat the best player in the generation and get a huge confidence boost if you beat him. Because do you think Colin Montgomerie and Paddy Harrington weren't pumped up when they were going to play Tiger and Phil in the 2004 Ryder Cup?

A six-handicapper would have a great chance beating Woods right now.

Have you guys learned nothing?

What happens to guys who say stupid crap like this about Tiger?

Stephen Ames? Got worked in match play. Rory Sabbatini? Got embarrased at the AT&T National.

I like McIlroy a lot, but he's a freaking fool. This was exactly the wrong thing to say, and it's exactly the kind of thing that could lead to Tiger refinding his game. And even if he doesn't, put me down for Tiger beating McIlroy every chance he gets in Wales.

Yes. But there are also the guys like Hal Sutton and Rich Beem that were able to knock off Tiger as well.

Hi CoG, You know this, those were the (Sutton/Beem) EXCEPTION, not the rule. You name any professional golfer and I'll give you the EXCEPTIONS!!! Tiger had few EXCEPTIONS and more the RULE!!!!!!
