Is Tiger's absence balanced by Luke's?

Luke Donald

As feared, Luke Donald won’t be participating in this year’s Ryder Cup having undergone surgery on his left wrist. This is a significant, if fully expected, blow to the chances of the European team. Donald’s Ryder Cup record is excellent, having been a key contributor to the last two victories.

A comparison of Luke’s record with Tiger’s is interesting: Luke has won 5.5 points from a possible 7; Tiger has won 11 points from a possible 25.  Tiger’s poor record in fourballs/foursomes is well documented. Luke is unbeaten in pairs.

For all of Tiger’s greatness (and yes, he is the greatest player to ever play the game), maybe his absence has been balanced by that of Luke Donald?

    I am not sure if Tiger will be missed at all, the best player in the world but a relatively poor ryder cup record, I owuld pick any of our top guys to beat woods, put can’t see any of the current american teeam to cause harrington garcia, Westwood , Casey, any problems, Mickleson underperforms as usual, the americans toughest player I reckon is Jim Furyk
