Podcast: Paul Azinger talks Tiger, Sergio and all things Players Championship

It wasn't always pretty, but what took place at TPC Sawgrass this weekend was definitely entertaining, contends Paul Azinger.

In his Players recap this week in his Zinger's Corner podcast with our Editor-in-Chief Jaime Diaz, Azinger salutes Tiger Woods for regrouping after things looked to be slipping away when his tee shot on the 14th hole found the water. Regarding the errant shot, Azinger discusses why Tiger's subsequent drop seemed good to him.

However, Azinger doesn't give Tiger a pass for his part in the spat with Sergio Garcia. Woods should have taken more responsibility for stirring the crowd, he says.

Instead, things became uglier than need be.
