Tiger Woods put the heat on Golf Channel over analyst Brandel Chamblee's insinuation of cheating, saying Monday that he was ready to move forward and that now it was up to what Golf Channel was prepared to do.
Woods spoke publicly for the first time since Chamblee, a longtime critic of the world's No. 1 player, wrote a column for Golf.com in which he gave Woods an "F" for his five-win season because of a series of rules violations.
Chamblee wrote that Woods was, "a little cavalier with the rules," and he made the analogy of the time his fourth-grade teacher crossed out "100" and gave him an "F" for cheating on a math test.

Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee apologized to Tiger Woods after insinuating the world's No. 1 player cheated during his five-win season.
Chamblee saved Woods for last in his report card of 14 players in a column posted last week on Golf.com. He told of getting caught cheating on a math test in the fourth grade, and how the teacher crossed a line through his "100" and gave him an "F."

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Nobody figured that Tiger Woods, bad back and all, would have to hit a meaningful shot on Sunday at the Presidents Cup.
The International side made sure he had to.
Woods took the lead over the unheralded Richard Sterne with a par at the 16th hole and then had to lag a long birdie putt to within a foot to clinch the United States' fifth consecutive Presidents Cup victory, 18½-15 ½ over the International side.
