McIIroy defends Woods over bending the rules comment

7:22 am on 30 October 2013

The Northern Ireland golfer and former world number one Rory McIIroy has defended Tiger Woods following allegations Woods bends the sport's rules.

The allegations against the 14 time major winner came from a Golf Channel TV analyst Brandel Chamblee after he accused Woods of being cavalier with the rules.

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

Woods' agent says the comments amount to an accusation of cheating and McIIroy has come out in support of Woods.
