Woods said during last week's Tour Championship: "I was introduced and just got a huge ovation of boos.
"I'm like 'oh, okay, welcome to the Walker Cup'."
But Stephen Gallacher, who played with fellow Scot Gordon Sherry against Woods and John Harris at Porthcawl that first morning, told Press Association Sport on Thursday: "I have absolutely no memories of anybody booing - no chance.
"I was standing alongside him and it's the sort of thing that would stick in your mind.
"I would be very, very, very surprised if anybody did anything like that. I honestly can't see it happening at an amateur event."
Woods and Gallacher, nephew of three-time European Ryder Cup captain Bernard, did not even hit opening drives in the match. Sherry and Harris went first.
The Americans won it 4&3, but Woods then famously lost his singles to Gary Wolstenholme, going out of bounds with his second shot to the final hole, and Britain and Ireland won 14-10.
Also last Saturday Woods said of his Ryder Cup debut at Valderrama two years later that the boos were even worse.
