VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) - Sergio Garcia apologized to Tiger Woods for saying he would serve fried chicken if they were to have dinner at the U.S. Open, an ugly addition to nearly two weeks of verbal sparring.
The flap is the latest dust-up between the two golfers who verbally sparred during The Players Championship two weeks ago. Garcia made the remark at a European golf celebration in England Tuesday. The Spanish golfer says he feels sick about it.
Woods took to Twitter to say the comment wasn't silly, rather it was wrong and hurtful. He says he's confident there is "real regret" the comment as made and that it's time to move on.
