Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia Finally Reconcile Before 2013 U.S. Open
The media fiasco that surrounded Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia after the Players Championship has been beyond ridiculous, but hopefully it’s finally over now. One month after public verbal jabs started flying between the two high-profile golfers, Garcia reportedly approached Woods face to face on the driving range at Merion Golf Club in an attempt at reconciliation prior to the 2013 U.S. Open.
ESPN reports Garcia shook hands with Woods on Merion’s West Course, which is where all U.S. Open competitors practice before the tournament begins on Thursday at the club’s East Course. The “feud” — if it can be called that — was absolutely childish on both parts, but thank goodness it’s over now so that we don’t have to hear about it anymore, if nothing else.
Whether or not Woods pulled a club from his bag during Garcia’s shot during the third round at the Players Championship is irrelevant now because it was literally a month ago and Garcia made the initial approach after his “fried chicken” comment in regards to Woods. It’s over now and we need to get back to golf because both players will be trying to rebound after poor outings in each’s last tournament appearance.
But at least Woods and Garcia are not paired together to start the U.S. Open. That would simply be too much. Here’s to hoping we simply see some solid golf at Merion this week. With all these little feuds, one would think was NASCAR or something.
