Once the Hero World Challenge concludes on Saturday, Woods and numerous other stars in the field will head to Australia, where the Presidents Cup will begin on Thursday, December 12th.

Reed was penalized 2 strokes Friday - and eventually ended up 2 strokes back of victor Henrik Stenson - when he twice took practice swings in a sandy waste area, with sand visibly being removed with the club from behind the ball.

"I don't have sympathy for anyone that cheats", Smith fumed.

"I hope so", Smith said.

"I don't think we're going to spend much time on that but I think the crowd's going to have a nice time with him".

"Like I said, I didn't feel like I was doing anything that was improving a lie, but then when you saw it on camera, because of that camera angle, they said that the sand was moving, and when the sand moves like that, it's a penalty".

Marc Leishman is another player who noted it could cause Reed some grief.

"I really don't care (what fans say) as long as they're on our team but I'm sure if it did get out of hand I think definitely everyone on the worldwide team might tell the guy to settle down a little bit, but we'll wait and see".

Head and neck injuries due to cellphone use increasing in U.S
Some accidents had been attributable to telephones themselves, together with individuals getting hit by a thrown cellphone. Still, most patients in the study were treated and released from the hospital, or released without any treatment required.

Now 29 and a seven-time victor, Reed was also the subject of various reports of cheating while he played college golf at the University of Georgia.

The International team's assistant captain KJ Choi said he completely understood why the crowds would want to target Reed after he watched a replay of the incident on television.

During the first round of the Hero World Challenge, Woods hit a monster drive that sailed past Thomas' ball on the fairway and Woods made sure that JT was well aware of it.As Thomas stood behind his ball eying up his next shot, Woods casually strolled up to JT's ball and inspected it, pretending to check if it was his ball or not.

"I found some good momentum and sometimes its just keep on working hard and grinding it out", Stenson told Sky Sports Golf.

The former Masters victor copped a two-stroke penalty after TV cameras caught him making improper swings in a waste bunker during Saturday's third round of the Tiger Woods-hosted event.

"I mean, the last thing you can do is let it dwell, especially when you have 18 holes left to go because you still have a chance to win a golf tournament".

"I can better put the ball because I can go back to reading and re-reading the putts".
