Chill out, Tiger Woods haters. He did not take another illegal drop, this time at The Players Championship.

Playing on Sunday, Woods hit a ball into the water in the 14th hole. While Woods dropped his ball to take his next shot, NBC commentator Johnny Miller said he thought Woods may have made his drop too far forward.

Woods' playing partner, Casey Wittenberg, said after the round that that was not the case.

"No, not at all. I saw it perfectly off the tee," he said. "We talked to each other. He asked me exactly where it crossed. I told him I thought it crossed on the corner of the bunker right where he took his drop, and it's all good.

"There is no doubt, guys. The ball crossed where he dropped."

Of course, this comes on the heels of Woods' illegal drop during the Masters, when a viewer called in and reported Woods for taking an improper drop on the 15th hole during the second round.

Woods was assessed a two-stroke penalty then. But all was good on Sunday.
