Title: The Handshake Heard Around The Golf World
Description: ARDMORE, Pa. -- Sergio Garcia had a brief exchange with Tiger Woods on Monday at Merion Golf Club, shaking his hand on the driving range and apparently attempting to move toward reconciliation. It is the first time the two have been face to face since Garcia made a "fried chicken" comment directed at Woods on May 21 at a European Tour function outside of London.

Garcia has since apologized, both in a statement and during a news conference, and Woods said at the Memorial Tournament two weeks ago that the matter was done, that it was time to move on. Still, there had been no face-to-face apology from Garcia. Asked about their brief exchange after a practice round Monday, Woods politely said "I'm not going there" and simply made reference to a Tuesday news conference in advance of the U.S. Open at Merion. The driving range where the handshake took place is on Merion's West Course, where the players practice this week before shuttling to the East Course, site of the tournament.
