McGinley plays down Garcia row

first_imgEurope’s Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley believes Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods can move on from their recent dispute. Garcia has apologised and is keen to offer a personal apology to Woods after comments he made about the world number one which could have been construed as racist. McGinley believes the long-standing tensions between the two players, which were reignited when they were paired together for the third round of the Players Championship at Sawgrass, are because of a personality clash and he believes the time is right to move on. McGinley told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportswqeek programme: “I think there’s no doubt there’s a personality clash between the two and both have spoken about that.” Press Associationcenter_img He added: “Sergio apologised for his comments, he didn’t mean them in the way they came out. “They don’t particularly like each others’ company but they don’t have to live with each other, they don’t have to see each other every day. Normally on a golf course between two players even if they are friends there’s not a lot of talk. For me it’s no big drama at all.” McGinley wants both players to move forward from the issue. “I was there when he made the comment and he’s apologised and as far as I’m concerned we move on. “Sergio, I know, is very remorseful about it.” last_img read more
