U.S. captain Corey Pavin would only say Wednesday that the world's No. 1 player is high on his list as a wild-card pick if Woods doesn't qualify after the PGA Championship.
Pavin says a Golf Channel report that quoted him as saying he would pick Woods because he's the best player in the world was wrong.
After Pavin's news conference, Jim Gray of The Golf Channel approached Pavin and wagged a finger toward his face during a heated argument. According to Pavin's wife, who was standing next to him, Gray told Pavin that he was a "liar" and "you're going down."
