The ongoing feud between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia seems to be getting thornier by the minute down in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., this weekend. Garcia blames Woods for an errant shot on the par-5 second hole. Garcia says Woods reached for a club as Garcia was still trying to shoot, which elicited a distracting cheer from the crowd. “I wouldn’t say that he didn’t see that I was ready,” Garcia said. “But you do have a feel when the other guy is going to hit, and right as I was in the top of my backswing, I think he must have pulled like a 5-wood or a 3-wood and obviously everybody started screaming. “So that didn’t help very much. But it was unfortunate because — I mean I might have hit it in there if nothing happens. You never know. But if I hit a good shot there and maybe make a birdie, it gets my day started in a bit of a different way.” Garcia hooked his tee shot into trees. Woods claims the marshals told him Garcia had already shot. “Obviously, he doesn’t know all the facts,” Woods told ESPN.com. “The marshals told me he had already hit. I pulled the club and played my shot. Then I hear his comments afterward. Not really surprising that he’s complaining about something.” It seems Garcia didn’t exactly buy Woods’ excuse. “That’s fine. At least I’m true to myself,” Garcia said. “I know what I’m doing, and he can do whatever he wants.” Garcia is happy that he’s not paired with Woods in the fourth round of The Players Championship. “I’m not gonna lie, he’s not my favorite guy to play with. He’s not the nicest guy on tour,” Garcia told Ryan Lavner of the Golf Channel. “Its good for both of us. We don’t enjoy each other’s company. Don’t need a rocket engineer to figure that out.” Check out Garcia blaming Woods for the hooked shot in the video below.
