ET has the latest...

Golfer Ben Crane is denying he disrespected fellow golfer Tiger Woods by calling him a "phony and a fake."

The quotes appear in the new issue of Life & Style and Crane's rep tells ET, "Ben has never talked to anyone at Life & Style magazine. In fact, Ben has not had any interviews since the Children's Miracle Network Classic at Disney on November 15th, 2009. Ben wishes only the best for Tiger, Elin their marriage and their family."
