Tiger Woods didn't think he could win a point if he played in the Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods looked like he had a bunch of fun with Rory McIlroy and Jimmy Fallon on Monday, but for all the Ryder Cup-junkies out there, the 14-time major champ did take a moment to explain why he decided to withdraw his name from consideration for Tom Watson's three captain's picks.

"Physically I just couldn't do it. I wouldn't be ready and not being ready for my teammates, for the captain, assistant captains and everyone who's involved in the event, I just wouldn't be ready and I just couldn't help the team. Every time your name's called -- and when you're on that team your name could be called five times and trust me, I've played all five sessions, some guys have played one -- but when your name's called, your name's called and you need to be able to go out there and get a point. And I just didn't feel like I could be ready enough where I could get a point, and with that being said, it was time to shut it down, get stronger and get more explosive again and get back for next year."
