On Tuesday evening at an awards dinner for the European Tour, Sergio Garcia took the recent battle between himself and Tiger Woods to a dark and ugly place.

Garcia was asked if he would consider having Tiger over for a dinner during the U.S. Open considering their recent back and forth through the media following the Players Championship and said, "We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken."

The racist implications of that statement were immediate, as was Sergio's apology, but that didn't stop Woods to taking to his rarely used Twitter account to respond to what Garcia said.

The jabbing between the two started during a weather delay during the third round of the Players Championship when Garcia accused Woods of pulling a golf club as Sergio was hitting his shot, distracting him and causing him to eventually make a bogey.

Woods responded by saying it was, "not real surprising that (Garcia's) complaining about something," to which Garcia came back and called Tiger "not the nicest guy on tour."

The battle of words continued into this week when Woods, point blank, answered "No" to a question asking if him and Garcia would ever think about making up.

I'm assuming now, after the comments by Sergio, that "No" by Tiger will come with an exclamation mark at the end.
