Fried Chicken feud over says Woods-Garcia
Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia have ended their messy fued that was the talk of the golf tabloids with a handshake and a handwritten apology by the Spaniard.

The unseemly spat began during last month's Players Championship where Garcia was put off his shot by increased fan noise he says was generated by the American.

The row continued and turned ugly when Garcia "jokingly" said he would serve Woods fried chicken if he ever invited him over for dinner. The comment was perceived to have offensive and possibly rascist overtones and Woods called it "hurtful".

Unable to arrange a one-on-one meeting, Garcia left a note in his locker at the U.S. Open with hopes that the two could put it behind them.

"I did leave him a note - a handwritten note," Garcia said. "And hopefully, he can take a look at it. It's a big week and I understand that it's difficult to meet up and stuff. So hopefully, I'll be able to do it. If not, at least he has read the note and he's happy with that."

Yesterday Garcia approached Woods at the practice range at Merion for handshake. According to Woods, the issue is now over.

Woods said, "It's already done. We've already gone through it all. It's time for the U.S. Open, and we tee it up in two days."

The Spaniard is still a little nervous about teeing up in Merion where the the vociferous Pennsylvania crowd are likely to give him a cold reception.

"But like he (Woods) said, with him taking the step forward and saying that he considers it closed, a closed deal, that obviously means a lot to me," Garcia said.
