Tiger Woods London, Aug 7 (ANI): Europe’s Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie has said that No.1 golfer Tiger Woods has lost the plot mentally and has raised doubts about the American’s chances of playing at the event.

Woods was in danger of being knocked off the world No1 spot for the first time in more than five years after his four-over-par 74 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

Woods has struggled to find his scintillating form ever since revelations about his private life gobbled global media headlines, The Sun reports.

Montgomerie said: “He’s not mentally with it right now, that’s obvious. I hope he gets back to some form shortly.”

“He lost the world No1 spot to Vijay Singh a while back and didn’t like that very much and got it back. This won’t please him at all. But more importantly right now for Tiger is thinking about the Ryder Cup, he’s not in the top eight of their qualifying.

“It doesn’t look like he’s going to be in the top eight after this event anyway and that makes the US PGA a very important event for him next week. Does [USA captain] Corey Pavin take a chance hoping Tiger’s form will change before the Ryder Cup? That’s up to him and not us,” Montgomerie added. (ANI)
