Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia Feud Reaches a New Low

Written by 

The ongoing feud between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia has reached a new low after Sergio Garcia made a racist joke directed toward Tiger Woods.

While at a European Tour player's dinner on Tuesday, Garcia answered a question about he and Tiger possibly getting together at the US Open in June. Garcia answered, "We'll have him 'round every night. We will serve fried chicken". Garcia has since apologized twice for the insensitive remark.

After the player's dinner, Garcia said he "started to get a sick feeling" and had trouble sleeping.

Garcia issued a statement apologizing for his comments,

"I want to apologize to Tiger and anybody that I could have offended. I feel sick about it. I'm truly, truly sorry. And I hope we can kind of settle things down and hopefully move on."

Tiger sent out a series of tweets about how he felt about the whole situation,

 

"The comment that was made wasn't silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate.

"I'm confident that there is real regret that the remark was made.

"The Players ended nearly two weeks ago and it's long past time to move on and talk about golf"

 

 

The Players is in reference to the Players Championship played nearly two weeks that started the engulfing inferno. Garcia took exception to when Woods puled out a 5-wood that sent the crowd into cheers. Garcia, while not in his backswing, was standing over his ball and was clearly distracted by the crowd. Garcia would eventually hit an errant shot after the crowd noise had died down.

Woods claimed that the crowd blocked his view of Garcia, so, he couldn't tell that Garcia was standing over his ball. Also, Woods had no idea that a simple act of pulling a club out of his bag would make the crowd erupt.

Garcia and Woods have had a contentious relationship for years, but it all came to a head on that Saturday at TPC Sawgrass. Woods and Garcia were not paired in the final round and Woods pulled away from Garcia after Garcia landed two shots into the water on the famed 17th hole at Sawgrass as Tiger won his fourth event of the season.
