Tiger Woods appears to consider the row with Sergio Garcia officially closed.

Garcia approached Woods on the range at Merion Golf Club, site of the 2013 U.S. Open, and shook his hand on Monday just outside of Philadelphia.

Golf Channel captured footage of the handshake. Garcia also appeared to follow Woods as they practiced on the East course.

Garcia got into trouble last month when he used a racial epithet at a European Tour banquet in England in response to a question about their feud's latest turn at The Players Championship a few weeks prior. Garcia was asked if him and Woods would have dinner at the U.S. Open, with him replying he would serve "fried chicken," known in the U.S. as a reference to antebellum stereotypes about African-Americans.
