Another week, another war of words.

The latest – and it’s OK if you’ve lost count of them this season – involves various marshals at the Players Championship chiming in with their versions of what was or wasn’t said to Tiger Woods on Saturday during his pairing with Sergio García.


By now, we all know Sergio claimed that Tiger disrupted him on his second shot by pulling a club as García was preparing to play from the fairway.

Woods later said a marshal told him García already had played and, therefore, it was his turn.

Then a marshal told Sports Illustrated that he never spoke to Woods about any of that, suggesting Woods wasn’t entirely truthful in his post-round comments.

In fact, two marshals said they didn’t tell Tiger anything.

What happens next?

Of course, more marshals came forward including one who told The Florida Times-Union that he was the guy who told Woods that it was OK to play away because García had played his second shot.

Tiger, he said, did nothing wrong and said nothing wrong. May that please be the end of it.
