We've all heard about Sergio Garcia's "fried chicken" comment by now, as well as Tiger Woods' response to his rival's controversial choice of words. But Steve Sands, who emceed the banquet in question, joined The Dan Patrick Show to explain the actual circumstances that led to Garcia's unfortunate comment.
