Tiger is considering taking legal action against Brandel Chamblee after the golf analyst suggested Woods was a cheat.
Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, explained the World No.1’s team was furious at the comments after Chamblee, a former PGA Tour winner, said them.
“There’s nothing you can call a golfer worse than a cheater,” Steinberg said. “This is the most deplorable thing I have seen. I’m not one for hyperbole, but this is absolutely disgusting. Calling him a cheater?
“I’ll be shocked, stunned if something is not done about this. Something has to be done. There are things that just don’t go without response. It’s atrocious…. [we] have to give thought to legal action.”
Chamblee is principally contracted with Golf Channel and it is understood there has already been a complaint made to Golf.com – the website which ran the story.
When asked to comment on players’ seasons, Chamblee awarded Woods an “F”, citing four controversies, even though the World No.1 was awarded the PGA Player of the Year.
Chamblee then went on to cite an anecdote in which Woods cheated in a school exam and was given an “F” after an initial mark of 100. Chamblee branded Woods “cavalier with the rules” and crossed out “100” to replace it with an “F” when grading his season.
Woods was hit with three two-shot penalties last season and was at the center of another storm at the Players where it was claimed he took an illegal drop which wasn’t penalized.
