The feud between golfers Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia took a turn for the worse Tuesday when Garcia, asked at a European Tour awards banquet whether he would invite Woods to dinner during next month's U.S. Open, said: "We will have him 'round every night. We will serve fried chicken. " Later that night, Garcia attempted to make amends for the remark, saying, "I apologize for any offense that may have been caused by my comment on stage during the European Tour Players' Awards dinner.

It looked nauseating from contact. It screamed wildly right and ricocheted through a brutish array of cactuses and barged to the other side of a barbed-wire fence. Had the rattlesnakes in the hills not slept through February, one might've mistaken it for an egg and eaten it. This zany tee shot on No. 15 Thursday epitomized Tiger Woods' back-nine inconveniences, quashed the momentum he'd gathered by holing from a greenside bunker on No.

The World Challenge, otherwise known as Tiger Woods' tournament, kicks off Thursday with Woods and 17 other players chasing a $4-million purse. Woods is the defending champion of the four-day event at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, a tournament he has won five times and that benefits Woods' charities. This year's field includes the winners of two of golf's four major tournaments: Masters champion Bubba Watson and U.S. Open winner Webb Simpson. "It's an honor just to be here . . . and just shows that you've been doing the right stuff," Simpson said.

Tiger Woods, once one of the world's most bankable athletes but disgraced by his own infidelities, will put his face on public view Friday morning for the first time since the early-morning car accident in November outside his Florida home permanently altered his life. He won't be pouring out his heart to Oprah Winfrey or taking questions on "60 Minutes." Instead, Woods will be in his own kind of tightly controlled comfort zone to say he's sorry. In front of a single television camera at the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., home to PGA Tour headquarters, and with three wire service reporters and an undisclosed number of pre-approved golf writers present, the 34-year-old superstar will make his first statement since admitting in December he was unfaithful to his wife, Elin, and would take an indefinite break from the game that built him. Woods will apologize for his behavior, his agent Mark Steinberg said Wednesday.

While Tiger Woods was traveling abroad to play in the Turkish Open, his girlfriend was back home calling him "dorky" on national television. Skier Lindsey Vonn appeared on the "Katie" show , where host Katie Couric asked her to describe the often controversial golfer. "He's goofy," Vonn said. "Like dorky goofy. " She quickly added: "He's probably not going to be that excited that I just said that. " Woods will play in a field that features Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose and Padraig Harrington this week.

Tiger Woods spent more than three hours playing 11 holes of golf Monday in the delayed final round of the Farmers Insurance Classic, a situation that left him quite unhappy afterward, even though he had won the tournament and its $1.08-million first prize. So how did he spend his time while standing on various tees and fairways, waiting to hit while players in front of him dwaddled along? "We talked a lot about Kobe [Bryant]," said Woods' caddie, Joe LaCava. "He loves Kobe and he couldn't believe he had 14 assists the other night.

LA JOLLA -- Tiger Woods is chewing up the easier Torrey Pines North Course on Friday and has climbed to the top of the leaderboard at the Farmers Insurance Open. Woods, who shot four-under-par 68 on the South Course in his opening round, shot four-under 32 on his front nine Friday and was eight-under overall as he made the turn. Woods was tied at one point with Charles Howell III for the lead but Howell fell to seven-under when he made bogey five on the South Course's par-four 10th hole, giving Woods the solo lead.

Here are a few highlights from Tiger Woods' Tuesday morning news conference in advance of this week's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. --Tiger agrees with Phil? Well, sort of. Phil Mickelson made news this week when he said he might leave California because of the state's income tax laws. "Well, I moved out of here back in '96 for that reason," Woods explained. "I enjoy Florida, but also I understand what he was, I think, trying to say. I think he'll probably explain it better and in a little more detail.

In an effort perhaps to sharpen his recently poor putting, Tiger Woods appears to have contacted an unlikely source. Shaq Fu. A new commercial promoting Tiger Woods' PGA Tour 13 features Shaquille O'Neal and Woods mimicking classic kung fu films, including awkward voice dubbing and endless kung fu moves. Based on O'Neal's free-throw shooting history, it's likely the former Lakers center adopts Happy Gilmore's game: tremendous driving power and unreliable putting. So it's unclear if such an approach would actually help.

Tiger Woods can add another item to his long list of accomplishments: He is the first person to win $100 million on the PGA Tour. Woods finished third in the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday to earn $544,000 and push his career total to $100,350,700. “The purse increase helps,” Woods said. “I won fewer tournaments than Sam Snead has, but obviously he was in a different era. It's just that we happened to time it up right and happened to play well when the purses really had a nice spike up.” Snead, the career leader with 82 PGA Tour victories, earned just $620,126 in a career that started in 1937.
