Woods now has a miserable record of 13 wins, 21 losses and three halves in the tournament.

And wildcard pick Woods groaned: “It’s disappointing because I went 0-4 and that’s four points to the European team.

“I’m one of the contributing factors to why we lost the cup and it’s not a lot of fun.”

Former number one Woods was a shadow of the man who headed to Paris in high spirits after winning his first title since 2013 at the tour championship.

He added: “To have a Ryder Cup end that way, for me personally, it doesn’t feel very good because I didn’t help my team-mates earn any points.

“At the end of the day, we came here as a team and we win or lose, and unfortunately we lost this one.

“It’s frustrating because we came here, I thought we were all playing pretty well, and I just didn’t perform at the level that I had been playing, and just got behind early in the matches and never got back.”
