Jim Gray Corey Pavin, There were fireworks at the press conference yesterday with pre-PGA Championship Ryder Cup captains and Colin Montgomerie Corey Pavin, as both men came under scrutiny for some alleged reckless conduct.

At least Pavin problems remained pure sports ground, but that did not stop U.S. Captain to participate in handbags with golf reporter Jim Gray after his meeting with the press.

Pavin had previously been involved in a disagreement regarding everyone’s favorite talking point, Tiger Woods, the sport helps network television claimed yesterday that Gray had said Pavin definitely intend to pick Woods as one of his wildcard picks Ryder Cup, where the No. 1 world no longer automatically qualify for the tournament.

The man nicknamed “Crazy” Pavin refuted this argument a couple of hours later, indicating through a message posted on his Twitter account: “For the record, Jim Gray has misquoted me re: pick Tiger. I never said such a thing and not say anything until 9.7 “- September 7 is the date it is due to name Pavin takes his captain for the Ryder Cup.

Pavin expanded this remark at a press conference yesterday, telling reporters assembled: “Let’s fix this right now. I had a conversation with Jim Gray yesterday and asked me some questions and their interpretation of what I said is wrong. ”

“No one is promised any decision at this time. It would be disrespectful to everyone who is trying to make the team. I have enough people I’m looking at. I have no disrespect to any of the players who are potential agents on the computer, and obviously there was a misinterpretation of what I said, and that is a misquote. ”

If that is supposed to be the end of it, there is still disagreement after the conference, Gray allegedly faced with Pavin to accuse him of lying before howls seem a little silly: “You’re going down!”

But while meeting Pavin was a little uncomfortable, that was nothing compared to pain Montgomerie might have expected after further, if unsubstantiated rumors about the private life of Scotland. So, Monty brazened things to a greater or lesser degree, despite 47 years of age may choose despite being so frank in discussing the status of Tiger Woods earlier this year.

Although most professionals did everything possible to play golf the equivalent of a bat plane whenever approached on the subject, Montgomerie was happy to tell the world that the revelations about the private life no doubt Woods would affect the golfer ” aura of invincibility. ” fair comment, but that leaves open the Europe captain open to similar criticism. Even if you’ve never quite enjoyed Montgomerie as an aura, its position as the man responsible for keeping their continent for success at the Celtic Manor seems just a bit vulnerable at this time.

Montgomerie looked to have weathered civil indiscretions earlier revelations this summer, as news of a case appeared in the Daily Mirror in June. But stories are now doing the rounds, reportedly accompanied by photographs – according to journalist David Feherty golf, which appeared on a radio show yesterday saying Montgomerie had obtained a court order to prevent its publication in detail a Sunday tabloid.

Yesterday, the golfer was having none of it, saying: “I know many of you are having a lot of fun at this time at my expense.

“I can say categorically that there is no injunction against News of the World. I’m really not going to discuss all this again. All I can say categorically there is an injunction against the News of the World regarding anything. I ask apologize for this, you have to bring this, but at the same time, more comments from myself about it. ”

Asked if the story could damage his reputation among the players on his team, Monty said “no problem here at all.”

Elsewhere in the European captain admitted that the position Pavin, he would choose to join the Tiger Team, commenting, to laughter: “Oh, that’s a very difficult question, dangerous and undiplomatic. But of course I pick up, yes. “Pavin joke Montgomerie took note of advice.

The Scot Lee Westwood also reiterated that it would probably be appearing at Celtic Manor in October, Westwood said: “He will be hitting the ball in four weeks, which is great news for everyone in Europe. It is our highest ranked player and our Ryder Cup team will be greatly weakened if they do not. So I’m delighted that he will hit balls within four weeks, and that gives even a couple of weeks to prepare. ”

Westwood seems certain, then. The same probably applies to Tiger Woods, even if it is Pavin admitting as much. Montgomerie may even be in the clear – assuming no more news in the pipeline, of course.
