Sergio Garcia is upset with Tiger Woods, telling NBC during a weather delay at the Players Championship on Saturday that Woods may have caused him to hit a bad shot at the par-5 second hole during their round together.

Garcia blocked his second shot to the right and bogeyed the hole.

In a replay, Garcia looks as if he is bothered or distracted by crowd noise. He thought Woods, might have pulled a club when he was in his backswing to get the crowd to react. Woods, at the time, was across the fairway from Garcia.

"Well, obviously Tiger was on the left and it was my shot to hit. He moved all the crowd that he needed to move, I waited for that. 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 said to NBC, via CBSSports.com.
Garcia and Woods are one shot back of leader Henrik Stenson at 10-under par after play was suspended on Saturday.
