Sabbo and Sean clear air -- what happens next?

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Sean O'Hair told reporters after the second round of the Players Championship on Friday that he and sparring partner Rory Sabbatini have cleared the air.

They two had an on-course exchange two weeks ago in New Orleans that escalated into a profane, high-decibel argument in which bystanders interceded.

O'Hair told reporters that he and Sabbatini spoke early last week and addressed their grievances, which date to three months ago and another Sabbatini blowup in Los Angeles that O'Hair also witnessed.

O'Hair said he doesn't believe that anything he did, personally, in the New Orleans incident warranted a suspension.

The PGA Tour has neither acknowledged that the incident took place nor announced what will happen with Sabbatini, who is tied for 11th after 36 holes. A tour source said last week that Sabbatini was suspended for the Riviera incident, but that the disciplinary move was later rescinded when he agreed to apologize to all of the offended parties.

Sabbo and Sean clear air -- what happens next?

I like Rory Sabbatini.  He only gets mad when players are not conforming to the rules of the game.  There are time limits as to how much of it you have when taking shots and PGA golfers are famous for going "over" the alloted time without being penalized.  Rory has a character like none other, however, at times it is good for the sport to have the types of "flares" that Sabbatini does as it draws attention to the sport and gives it needed exposure.  Rory just likes attention too, and he might well be a jerk at times, but for the most part I bet he's a pretty cool individual.  All people are jerks at certain times in their lives but it doesn't make them any less likeable to the people one is around the most as they know what the person is really like most of the time and it's probably not being a jerk.  Just trying to take the other side of the story to make a point.

Sabbatini losing his cool is nothing new. He is one of the most volitile players on tour. I am not a fan of his and never will be until he learns how to act like a grown-up. I don't know were he got that chip on his shoulder,but it is so obvious that it's there. Strutting around the course like a peacock or rooster, his attitude is not what I'd want my young golfer to emulate, that's for sure.
