CHASKA, Minn. (AP) - Tiger Woods will be fined by the PGA Tour for his public criticism of a rules official after winning the Bridgestone Invitational, a tour official said.
The official spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the tour does not publicize fines.
Woods was bothered after his four-shot victory Sunday because he
and Padraig Harrington were put on the clock at the par-5 16th. He said that caused Harrington to rush three difficult shots, leading to triple bogey.
European Tour chief referee John Paramor told Woods and Harrington they were being timed.
Woods said he told Harrington after it was over, "I'm sorry that John got in the way of a great battle."
