Golfer Sergio Garcia is backtracking on his comments at an awards dinner on Tuesday that he would "serve fried chicken" to Tiger Woods if the two met for a meal, the second time in recent years that a golfer has used painful racial stereotypes against Woods. Woods tweeted on Wednesday that Garcia's comment "was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate."
Also drawn into the flap was European Tour CEO George O'Grady who used the word "colored" in reference to Garcia's friends during an interview. He later apologized.
