No regrets for Rory Sabbatini over comments

South African Rory Sabbatini had no regrets over his bullish comments about a final-round duel with Tiger Woods that failed to materialise at the Wachovia Championship on Sunday.

The Texas-based professional felt he had not been given enough credit for winning last year's Nissan Open at Riviera Country Club, where an ailing Woods was forced to pull out, and was determined to prove the point at Quail Hollow Club.

Although Sabbatini held a one-stroke lead after Saturday's third round, he dropped back into a tie for third after closing with a two-over-par 74 while playing partner Woods triumphed by two shots.

"He got the job done today, I didn't," Sabbatini told reporters after ending a blustery day on nine-under 279, four adrift of Woods.

"I don't have any regrets about what I said yesterday. I just didn't get the job done today, and next time maybe I will.

"I felt like I hit a lot of good golf shots out there and just couldn't get the putts to drop," added the 31-year-old from Durban. "It was a tough day with the conditions."

Sabbatini, who dropped four shots in a five-hole stretch on the back nine, had relished the opportunity of taking on Woods in the final round.

"Some people said Tiger had withdrawn (from the Nissan Open) because he was sick," he told reporters on Saturday.
