The Tiger Woods-Sergio Garcia flap has taken another turn, taylormade rbz irons as two marshals who were working the second hole at the TPC Sawgrass on Saturday dispute the account of two other marshals who accused Woods of lying about distracting Garcia.
The Florida-Times Union newspaper in Jacksonville said two marshals -- both part of the walking escort for Woods group -- have taken issue with a Sports Illustrated report that questioned the No. 1-ranked golfer's version of the events.
"It is not true and definitely unfair to Tiger,'' Callaway Razr Hawk Driver Brian Nedrich told the Times-Union. "That's because I was the one Tiger heard say that Sergio had hit.''
Garcia said on Saturday that Woods distracted him during his second shot at the par-5 second hole when Woods pulled a club out of his bag while surveying his shot from left of the fairway. Woods had hit an errant drive, and the crowd had to be moved to clear a path, with Woods trying to figure out his strategy.
When he pulled a wood from his bag, spectators cheered -- which happened to be when Garcia, 50 yards away on the right side of the fairway, was addressing his ball. He went ahead with the shot, Titleist 913 D2 Driver sprayed it into the trees, then immediately looked over at the commotion, obviously displeased.
That led to a verbal spat between the two longtime adversaries that continued Saturday night and into Sunday morning after the conclusion of the weather-delayed third round, cheap golf clubs and again after Woods had won the tournament -- with the help of Garcia, who hit two balls in the water at the par-3 17th when he was tied for the lead with Woods.
