Yes he will be fined. Tiger Woods complained after the European Tour chief referee John Paramor put him and Padraig Harrington on the clock on the 16th hole. Paramor said the pair were 17 minutes out of position and were put on the clock.
Tiger Woods will reportedly be fined by the PGA Tour for publicly criticizing an official after winning the Bridgestone Invitational.

Woods said the decision caused Harrington to rush three tough shots, leading to triple bogey.

Tiger Woods will be fined by the PGA Tour for his public criticism of a rules official after winning the Bridgestone Invitational, a tour official said Monday.

Section VI-D in the PGA Tour's player handbook says, ``It is an obligation of membership to refrain from comments to the news media that unreasonably attack or disparage tournaments, sponsors, fellow members, players, or PGA Tour.''

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the tour does not publicize fines.

Woods was bothered after his four-shot victory Sunday because he and Padraig Harrington were put on the clock at the par-5 16th. He said that caused Harrington to rush three difficult shots, leading to triple bogey.

European Tour chief referee John Paramor told Woods and Harrington they were being timed.

Woods said he told Harrington after it was over, "I'm sorry that John got in the way of a great battle.''
