HAIKOU - Tiger Woods said it was up to the Golf Channel to deal with a TV analyst who accused him of bending the rules, as the threat of legal action receded Monday. The 14-time major-winner broke his silence on the stormy issue before teeing off in the ‘Match at Mission Hills’, a two-man exhibition showdown against Rory McIlroy in China. Woods’s manager had hinted at libel action against the Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee after he accused the world No1 of being “a little cavalier with the rules”. “All I am going to say is that I know I am going forward but then I don’t know what the Golf Channel is going to do or not, so then that is up to them,” Woods said. “The whole issue has been very disappointing as he (Chamblee) didn’t really apologise and he sort of reignited the whole situation.–AFP
