'There's nobody that's promised any picks right now,” Pavin said. “It would be disrespectful to everybody that's trying to make the team. I've got quite a few people I'm looking at. I would not disrespect any of the players that are potential players on the team, and obviously there was a misinterpretation of what I said, and that is an incorrect quote.'
In a statement Golf Channel said it stands behind the accuracy of Gray’s report. “As far as any subsequent conversation between Gray and Pavin, it was meant to be private and should remain as such,” the statement said.
On Wednesday afternoon Gray said, “I did not misquote Corey Pavin. I stand 100 percent behind my story. He challenged my credibility and I felt that that a private conversation with Corey was needed. At no time during that conversation was anybody threatened. It is time to move on now and talk about the PGA Championship.”
