Sergio Garcia told NBC during the weather delay on Saturday at the Players Championship that Tiger Woods might have caused him to hit a bad shot at the par-5, 532-yard second hole during their round together.

Garcia blocked his second shot to the right and ended up making bogey. It looked in a replay like he was distracted by some crowd noise. He said he thought Tiger, who was across the fairway from him, might have pulled a club when he was in his backswing to get the crowd to react. Here's what he said to NBC:

"I wouldn't say he didn't see that I was ready, but you do have a feel when the other guy is going to hit. Right as I was on top of the backswing, he pulled a 5-wood or 3-wood out of the rough and, obviously, everybody started screaming, so that didn't help very much."

Garcia and Woods are currently one back of leader Henrik Stenson. The two of them don't have a ... how shall we say it ... great historical relationship.

This might be one more chapter.
