So obviously the first thing everyone thought when Garcia, a white guy, made a fried chicken about Woods was, "Fuzzy Zoeller." And from there, it was only a short leap to "fucking racist." It wasn't until Garcia left the dinner that he or someone in his camp realized what had transpired. Soon after, he issued an apologetic statement through the European Tour, saying:

"I apologise for any offence that may have been caused by my comment on stage during The European Tour Players' Awards dinner. I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner."


So that's where we are now with the suddenly-a-little-more-serious feud Garcia-Woods feud now. It's good he apologized quickly, but given their history, we can't imagine this relationship getting cuddly any time soon.
