Tiger Woods has lied and cheated before. This past weekend at The Players Championship, he may have lied again.

A month after The Masters in which Woods made headlines for an illegal drop in which many people felt he should have been disqualified or withdrawn after the error, Woods was at the center of another controversy with rival Sergio Garcia after interfering with one of his shots, and said the marshals for allowing him to approach his shot. But the marshals said they never told Woods anything.

In the third round of The Players Championship on Saturday on the second hole, Garcia was irked when Woods pulled out a club and sized up his next shot, which resulted in cheers from the crowd, disrupting Garcia and his shot. Garcia told NBC TV, "You have to pay attention to what's going on because the other guy is hitting. You do something when you're in the crowd and the crowd is going to respond."

It's debatable whether Woods' actions had any impact on Garcia's shot, but he did respond to the controversy.

"The marshals, they told me he already hit, so I pulled a club and was getting ready to play my shot, and then I hear his comments afterward and it’s not real surprising that he’s complaining about something,” he said.

But apparently that is not the case.

"[Woods] didn’t ask us nothing, and we didn’t say nothing. We’re told not to talk to the players,” a marshal, Gary Anderson, told Golf.com.

Anderson's boss and chief marshal, John North, backed up that clail. North walked with the lead group for the first three holes that day.

“Nothing was said to us and we certainly said nothing to him,” he told the website. “I was disappointed to hear him make those remarks. We’re there to help the players and enhance the experience of the fans. He was saying what was good for him. It lacked character.”

Woods went on to win the tournament by two strokes while Garcia finished tied for eighth after he put two balls into the water on Sawgrass' famed 17th hole.
