- In this May 12, 2013 file photo, Sergio Garcia, of Spain, left, shakes hands with Tiger Woods at the conclusion of the third round of The Players championship golf tournament at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Garcia was at a European Tour awards dinner Tuesday night, May 21, 2013 when he was jokingly asked if he would have Woods over for dinner during the U.S. Open. The Spaniard replied, "We'll have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken."
