Woods says it's up to Golf Channel to deal with bending the rules comments

The world golf number one Tiger Woods says it's up to the Golf Channel to deal with a TV analyst who's accused him of bending the rules.

The 14-time major-winner broke his silence on the issue before teeing off in an exhibition match against Rory McIIroy in China today.

Woods' manager had hinted at libel action against the Golf Channel's Brandel Chamblee after he accused Woods of being cavalier with the rules.

Chamblee initially took to social media to apologise to Woods, but he then inflamed the issue again by saying he stood by the accusation, which he made in an article.

In the article, Chamblee gave Woods an 'F' grade for this season.

Woods has incurred a number of penalties this year, most notably at the US Masters when he flirted with disqualification over an improper drop.
