Brandel Chamblee has been, to put it lightly, the talk of the golf world for the last week or so, since he wrote a highly controversial column about Tiger Woods posted on Golf.com. On Tuesday, he apologized.
In a series of Twitter posts, Chamblee said, ''I want to apologize to Tiger for this incited discourse,'' and that ''I was not asked to apologize.'' He also said his ''intention was to note Tiger's rules infractions this year, but comparing that to cheating in grade school went too far.''
In the original column, Chamblee gave Woods an ''F'' grade for his 2013 season, in part for what he called being ''a little cavalier with the rules.'' He never explicitly called Woods a cheater, but seemingly equated Woods' brushes with the rules with the time Chamblee was busted for cheating on a test in school.
