Despite not receiving an apology from Sergio Garcia for his ‘fried chicken’ remark last month, Tiger Woods is ready to move on and wants to turn his attention to winning the 2013 US Open this week at the Merion Golf Club.
“No. It’s already done,” Woods told the media. “We’ve already gone through it all. It’s time for the US Open and we tee it up in two days.”
Woods obviously hasn’t looked in his locker, as Garcia revealed later in the day that he left a letter in Woods’ locker after he was unable to organise a face to face meeting with the world number one but the Spaniard failed to tell us all the contents of the letter, instead saying that it’s up to Woods.
“We saw each other yesterday on the range. I was hoping to meet him after the round but he was gone after the round. The weather obviously didn’t help,” Garcia said.
“This morning I was here early, I didn’t see him around. Obviously he got here later on. But, yeah, I did leave him a note. A handwritten note. Hopefully he can take a look at it and, you know, 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.”
“I think that if he wants to show you, I mean the note is for him, so if he wants to show you, then he can,” Garcia continued. ” I don’t have any problems with that. But I am not going to be the one showing you.”
While a bit of rivalry between the pair is a good viewing spectacle, when it starts becoming day to day news and affecting each others games it’s time for them to sort out their differences, and I’m sure they’ll sit down following the tournament and air their differences.
