Woods Apologizes for Ryder Cup Play

BELEK, Turkey -- Tiger Woods told reporters Monday that he apologized to several of his Ryder Cup teammates for his inability to deliver more points during a U.S. defeat to Europe at Medinah Country Club.

Woods, who is playing in the eight-man Turkish Airlines World Golf Final, which begins Tuesday, revealed during a news conference that he sought out U.S. rookies Webb Simpson, Brandt Snedeker, Jason Dufner and Keegan Bradley after the American team squandered a 10-6 advantage and lost 14½ to 13½.

The top qualifier on the U.S. team, Woods went 0-3-1, and his Sunday singles match was all but rendered meaningless as the Europeans already had retained the Cup.

"I had an opportunity to earn three points in team sessions and didn't do that," Woods said. "My point (in the singles) didn't matter when all was said and done. Steve Stricker and I were sent out to win points and we didn't do it. That was frustrating."

Woods, 36, went 0-3 in team play with Stricker (0-4 overall) and saw his overall Ryder Cup record drop to 13-17-3.

Jozy Altidore Off US Roster For Qualifiers

NEW YORK -- Jozy Altidore was dropped Monday from the U.S. roster for critical World Cup qualifiers and Landon Donovan was among the 24 players picked despite injuring his left knee last weekend.

Altidore has nine goals in 10 games this season for AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands but had little impact during two qualifiers last month.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was critical in an espn.com interview published Sept. 28, saying, "I think Jozy can do a lot better, and he knows that."

Altidore, according to multiple reports, responded with a tweet, which since has been removed, saying: "Love when people try to blame others for their own shortcomings and incompetence."

The Americans play at Antigua and Barbuda on Friday, then host Guatemala on Oct. 16 at Kansas City, Kan. The U.S. figures to need a win and a tie to advance to next year's regional finals.

Giants S Will Hill Suspended for Banned Substance

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The NFL has suspended New York Giants rookie safety Will Hill for using Adderall, the same prescription drug that teammate Tyler Sash used.

The Giants announced Hill's suspension on Monday, the same day they added Sash back to the 53-man roster, following his suspension, which was announced during training camp.

Hill's suspension will begin immediately. He will be eligible to return to the Giants active roster on Nov. 5, the day after the Giants play the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Giants had received a roster exemption last week for Sash, who practiced but was not activated for the team's 41-27 victory yesterday over Cleveland.

Sandusky, Victims Plan To Speak at Sentencing

BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- Jerry Sandusky and at least some of his victims plan to address the judge at his sentencing, a proceeding that may last less than two hours, lawyers said after a closed-door meeting to iron out logistics ahead of the Tuesday hearing.

Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola said "it's as certain as certain can be" that the former Penn State assistant football coach will speak to Judge John Cleland and assert his innocence before he is sentenced on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

"What I anticipate he'll say is he's innocent," Amendola said outside the courthouse Monday afternoon.

Amendola said he did not expect any others to speak on Sandusky's behalf, although friends and family members -- including his wife, Dottie -- have written letters of support. Dottie Sandusky plans to attend the hearing, he said.
