On Tuesday, Sergio Garcia crossed the line from trash talk to offensive and racist comment when he made a “fried chicken” comment regarding Tiger Woods.

The remark, which took place at the European Tour’s gala player’s awards, quickly made its way back across the pond and was dissected by nearly every media outlet and blog.

Garcia has been roasted for it and for good reason.

Woods himself has now chimed in, taking to Twitter early Wednesday morning, stating that the comment was “hurtful” and that he’s sure there is “real regret that the remark was made.”

If it seems like anything but actual golf has been talked about for the last few weeks, well, it’s because it has.

Woods has one focus right now and that’s his game on the course. Maybe Garcia could take a lesson or two from the legendary golfer’s following tweet.
