The 66-year-old, who has long battled Parkinson's disease, posed for photographs with the entire team before each player sat next to him in the golf cart for individual snapshots

"That's one of those Ryder Cup moments you can't put into words," Faldo told Reuters

Faldo, a veteran of 11 Ryder Cup felt the absence of Woods could spark the home team.
