Tiger Woods has said he was not fined by
the PGA Tour for his critical remarks about a rules official
putting the last group on the clock at Firestone.
A PGA Tour official told The Associated Press on Monday that the
world's No. 1 player would be fined for his comment. He spoke on
condition of anonymity because the tour does not publicize fines.
A section of the PGA Tour handbook says "it is an obligation of
membership to refrain from comments to the news media that
unreasonably attack or disparage tournaments, sponsors, fellow
members, players or PGA Tour."
"I've heard from the tour and there's no fine," Woods said.
"That was an erroneous report."
