Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy Stirring Up Rivalry Heading Into Ryder Cup


NEWPORT, Wales — The Ryder Cup is getting personal for Tiger Woods.

Woods fired back Tuesday at a comment by Rory McIlroy last month that the 21-year-old would "love to face him" in the Ryder Cup if the game of the top-ranked player did not rapidly improve.

Asked for a reaction to McIlroy's comments, Woods leaned into the microphone and said only, "Me, too."

Woods has been aware of the comments since they were made right after his worst tournament ever, when he shot 18-over par at Firestone. He has lost only one singles match in the Ryder Cup.
