I'll explain in a bit.
Doug Ferguson filed Tiger's first remarks from China on the Brandel Chamblee brouhaha and it seems that Team Woods is going for the jugular, hoping for a Chamblee apology or perhaps even a firing?
"All I am going to say is that I know I am going forward," Woods said before his exhibition match with Rory McIlroy at Mission Hills. "But then, I don't know what the Golf Channel is going to do or not. But then that's up to them. The whole issue has been very disappointing as he didn't really apologize and he sort of reignited the whole situation."
"I'm all done talking about it and it's now in the hands of the Golf Channel," Steinberg said. "That's Tiger's view and that's mine, and all we want to do is move forward. And whether the Golf Channel moves forward as well, then we'll have to wait and see."
Sadly forgotten in all of this: the offending accusation of being cavalier with the rules and the analogy of cheating appeared on golf.com.
So with the latest remarks from Team Tiger, they have (A) declared golf.com utterly irrelevant even though the offending column appeared there, and, (B) seem particularly interested in drawing (partner) Golf Channel into a tussle as the NBC/Golf Channel televised World Challenge hosted by Tiger looms.
But before then, Tiger plays the Turkey European Tour event next week, covered in part by Golf Channel.
Ed Sherman analyzed and concluded this was a turning-up-the-heat move by Team Tiger.
