Garcia wants to personally apologise to Woods

Sergio Garcia has reiterated his desire to apologise in person to Tiger Woods after European Tour chief executive George O'Grady unwittingly reopened the racism row which has overshadowed the BMW PGA Championship.

O’Grady issued an apology yesterday for using the word “coloured” when defending the decision not to sanction Garcia for his own remark about serving Woods “fried chicken” during the Tour’s annual awards dinner on Tuesday night.

The Tour had been criticised for accepting Garcia’s subsequent apology and considering the matter closed, but O’Grady was forced to apologise himself after a TV interview.
