Golf Analyst Apologies to Tiger for Implying He's a Cheater on Course
Golf analyst Brandel Chamblee apologized on Tuesday for implying that Tiger Woods was a cheater on the golf course. After Tiger Woods's agent Mark Steinberg threatened Chamblee with legal action over the weekend, Chamblee initally did not back down from his comments on Tuesday.
Later on in the evening, Chamblee sent out a series of tweets saying he wanted to "apologize to Tiger" for the "incited discourse." Chamblee emphasized that he was "not asked to apologize" by anybody.
Woods had four major rules controversies last season, most notably the two-shot penalty he received for his illegal drop on the second day of the Masters, which may have marred his reputation on the course a bit and cost him a chance to win another Green Jacket. The drop controversy started on the the par-5 15th hole at Augusta after Woods approach shot to the hole hit the flagstick and then rolled into the water.
