TaylorMade Releases Statement About Garcia

Sergio Garcia was asked if he would consider inviting Tiger Woods out for dinner at the U.S. Open next month during the European Tour Players’ Awards dinner. And he provided this answer.

“We’ll have him round every night,” he said. “We will serve fried chicken.”

TaylorMade released a statement about Garcia’s comments to Tiger about the fried chicken joke.

Below is the full response from TaylorMade Golf, which has sponsored Garcia since 2002:

“Sergio Garcia’s recent comment was offensive and in no way aligns with TaylorMade-adidas Golf’s values and corporate culture. We have spoken with Sergio directly and he clearly has regret for his statement and we believe he is sincere. We discussed with Sergio that his comments are clearly out of bounds and we are continuing to review the matter.”
