Tiger Woods hits his second shot on No. 2 on Saturday at TPC Sawgrass — Getty ImagesWe have a new wrinkle in the Tiger Woods-Sergio Garcia drama from the third round at the Players Championship and it comes from neither of the players caught up in the war of words at TPC Sawgrass.
Garcia, who went out of his way to blame Tiger for a bad shot he hit early in his third round, might be justified for going after the eventual winner according to the marshals at Sawgrass.
Sergio said on Saturday that, "I wouldn't say (Tiger) didn't see that I was ready, but you do have a feel when the other guy is going to hit. Right as I was on top of the backswing, he pulled a 5-wood or 3-wood out of the rough and, obviously, everybody started screaming, so that didn't help very much."
Tiger responded, "The marshals, they told me he already hit, so I pulled a club and was getting ready to play my shot, and then I hear his comments afterward and it’s not real surprising that he’s complaining about something."
