Tiger Woods on Sergio Garcia spat: “It’s over”

It's not over until the No. 1 player in the world says it's over. Tiger Woods said so on Wednesday at the Memorial Tournament.

The defending champion at Muirfield Village G.C. said in a news conference that it's time to put the spat between him and Sergio Garcia in the past and talk about golf.

"It's already done with," Woods said in a news conference.

Garcia has been lambasted for using a racial epithet ("fried chicken") last Tuesday at at European Tour gala in response to a facetious question if him and Woods would have a makeup dinner at next month's U.S. Open to put their Players Championship incident behind them.

As Woods has said in the past, he has dealt with remarks like these publicly and privately over the course of his life.

"I live it. It's happened my entire career life, entire career," he said. "It exists all around the world."
