Career record in the Ryder Cup for Tiger Woods, who added two more losses to his ledger Saturday as the Americans fell behind Europe, 10-6, at Le Golf National near Paris. Woods is 0-3 this week. As if that career mark weren’t bad enough, Woods is on the verge of Ryder Cup infamy. Should he lose his singles match today to Jon Rahm and American Phil Mickelson avoid a loss against Francesco Molinari, Woods would join Mickelson with the most losses in Ryder Cup history, at 21. And unless the Americans can rally to win, Woods’ team record in the Ryder Cup would fall to 1-7. At least Woods should be well-rested for today. Neither of his matches Saturday made it past the 15th hole (scores/pairings).

Finkelstein’s 11-under 131 total leads China’s Ruixin Liu (66) by one stroke. Among the four players tied for third at 9-under 133, South Korea’s Min Seo Kwak (61) and Thailand’s Pavarisa Yoktuan (65) rank Nos. 11 and 12, respectively, on the season money list. Finkelstein is 14th. After next week’s season-ending Tour Championship, the top 10 earners for the year will win playing privileges on the LPGA for next season (scores).
