Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn Update: Writer Apologizes For Calling Golfer a Cheater; Vonn Puts Comeback On Hold
Tiger Woods' agent Mark Steinberg was not happy about a writer's suggestion that he is a cheater, but the golfer received an apology via Twitter earlier this week.
The column in golf.com last week started off when writer Brandel Chamblee talked about his own experience receiving an F for cheating when he was in fourth grade and then said that he would give Tiger Woods the same grade and accused him of being "cavalier with the rules."
"There's nothing you can call a golfer worse than a cheater," Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, said Friday to ESPN.com. "This is the most deplorable thing I have seen." Steinberg also said to ESPN that he would consider legal action.
Chamblee said that his intentions were to just note Woods' infractions this year but did not mean to stir the pot so much to the point where the golfer's agent would take such action.
"My intention was to note Tiger's rules infractions this year, but comparing that to cheating in grade school went too far," he said.
In other news, Woods' girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, has put a hold on her comeback to the ski slopes as she continues her recovery from a bad knee injury she suffered in February.
"My training camp in Soelden went very well and I made great progress, but I feel that I need more training before I start racing again," Vonn said on her website. "The Soelden race is not in the cards this year. Patience is not my strong suit so not racing is very hard for me but it will only make me more excited for the next one."
Vonn did say she intends to participate at the World Cup event in Beaver Creek, Colorado on Nov. 29.
