Tiger Woods spoke publicly for the first time since Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee wrote a column for Golf.com in which he called Woods a cheater and gave him an “F” for his five-win season because of several rules violations. “All I am going to say is that I know I am going forward,” Woods said before his exhibition match with Rory McIlroy at Mission Hills, via The Associated Press. “But then, I don’t know what the Golf Channel is going to do or not. But then that’s up to them. The whole issue has been very disappointing, as he didn’t really apologize and he sort of reignited the whole situation. “So the ball really is in the court of the Golf Channel and what they are prepared to do.” Golf Channel has not commented on the column. “I think ‘cavalier with the rules’ allows for those with a dubious opinion of the BMW video,” Chamblee said. “My teacher in the fourth grade did not have a dubious opinion of how I complete the test. But she was writing to one, and as I was writing to many, I felt it important to allow for the doubt some might have, so I chose my words accordingly. “What people want to infer about that is up to them,” he said. “I have my opinion, they can form theirs.” “Golf is a gentleman’s game and I’m not proud of this debate. I want to apologize to Tiger for this incited discourse,” Chamblee wrote on Twitter. “And no – I was not asked to apologize.” “My intention was to note Tiger’s rules infractions this year, but comparing that to cheating in grade school went too far.” The post Tiger Woods: ‘The ball is in the court of the Golf Channel’ appeared first on Sports Glory.
