Woods Ready for Ryder Cup Challenge
NEWPORT, Wales (AP) -- 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.
