Following comments made by Brandel Chamblee in which the Golf Channel analyst gave Tiger Woods an “F” for his 2013 PGA Tour season and implied Woods is a cheater, Woods' agent Mark Steinberg spoke out about Chamblee's comments.

"There's nothing you can call a golfer worse than a cheater," Steinberg, of Excel Sports Management, told ESPN.com. "This is the most deplorable thing I have seen. I'm not one for hyperbole, but this is absolutely disgusting. Calling him a cheater? I'll be shocked, stunned if something is not done about this. Something has to be done.

"There are certainly things that just don't go without response. It's atrocious. I'm not sure if there isn't legal action to be taken. I have to give some thought to legal action."

Woods was a five-time winner on Tour last season and was voted Player of the Year for the 11th time. But Chamblee wrote this about Woods' season, one that included a number of rules controversies, including most notably at the Masters:

"When I was in the fourth grade, I cheated on a math test and when I got the paper back it had '100' written at the top and just below the grade, was this quote: 'Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!' It was an oft-quoted line from the epic poem 'Marmion' by Sir Walter Scott, and my teacher's message was clear. Written once more beneath that quote was my grade of '100,' but this time with a line drawn through it and beneath that an F. I never did ask my teacher how she knew I cheated and I certainly didn't protest the grade. I knew I had done the wrong thing and my teacher the right, but I never forgot the way I felt when I read that quote.

"I remember when we only talked about Tiger's golf. I miss those days. He won five times and contended in majors and won the Vardon Trophy and .  . . how shall we say this . . . was a little cavalier with the rules."
