Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia are paired together today for the third round of the 2013 BMW Championship. It is the first time they have played together since the spat they got into at The Players Championship back in May, which was followed a bit over a week later with Sergio's now infamous 'fried chicken" comments at the European Tour's Gala Players Awards dinner.

Just as a reminder, when asked by reporters if Garcia would dine with Tiger during the upcoming U.S. Open Sergio remarked.

"We will have him around every night. We will serve fried chicken."

Even though Garcia publicly apologized, Tiger stated later that he never was contacted privately by him. Garcia claims that he did leave Woods a private apology note in his locker at Merion during the U.S. Open. However, the dislike these two have for each other likely remains strong.
