PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Tiger Woods was surrounded by four rows of fans who stood shoulder-to-shoulder, curious to see how he was going to escape from the trees on the second hole at THE PLAYERS Championship.
Cheers erupted when he pulled out a 5-wood, a risky shot off the pine straw through a 15-foot gap of pines.Woods said he didn't hear Sergio Garcia hit his shot from the fairway. He didn't see Garcia stare in his direction.
But he heard Garcia on television during a storm delay.
The Spaniard said the burst of cheers disrupted his swing, and he suggested that Woods was the instigator by thinking only of himself.
"Not real surprising that he's complaining about something," Woods said.
