VIRGINIA WATER, England -- Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia dont like each other, and theyre making no effort to disguise their feelings. Nolan Patrick Jersey . The verbal feuding began May 11 during the third round of The Players Championship. It resumed this week on both sides of the Atlantic when Woods offered a one-word answer if he thought about contacting Garcia to put the matter to rest. "No," he replied with a tight smile. Garcia fired back at a sponsor function outside London. "He called me a whiner. Thats probably right," he told reporters. "Its also probably the first thing hes told you guys thats true in 15 years. I know what he is like. You guys are finding out." Garcia tried to tone down the barbs Tuesday at the BMW Championship when asked about the spat. "I cant like everybody and theres people that you connect with and theres people that you dont," Garcia said at Wentworth. "He doesnt need me in his life, I dont need him in mine and lets move on and keep doing what were doing. Theres never really been a true connection I would have with maybe Luke (Donald) or Adam Scott or some of the other guys that I get along with well. "I think we should kind of move on and forget -- well, it will be difficult to forget -- but kind of move on about what happened." Then Garcia inadvertently stirred things up again later Tuesday while appearing at the European Tours awards dinner in England. The British newspaper The Guardian reported Garcia was asked in jest if he would invite Woods to dinner during the U.S. Open. The Guardian reported Garcia said: "We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken." The newspaper says Garcia released a statement through the European Tour: "I apologise for any offence that may have been caused by my comment on stage during The European Tour Players Awards dinner. I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner." Disputes among golfers are nothing new, though its rare for two high-profile players to go at each other through the media. The animosity between them goes as far back as 2000, when Garcia beat Woods in the Monday night exhibition "Battle at Bighorn" and celebrated as if he had won something much more important. Two years later in the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black, where Woods won wire-to-wire, Garcia complained that the second round should have been halted because of rain and that "if Tiger Woods would have been out there, it would have been called." The latest chapter took place on the second fairway at the TPC Sawgrass in the third round, when Garcia had a one-shot lead. He was preparing to play his second shot on the par 5 from the fairway when he was disrupted by cheers from the gallery around Woods deep in the trees. Woods was about 50 yards away and couldnt see the Spaniard. The crowd burst into cheers when Woods took a 5-wood from his bag to play a risky shot through a gap in the trees. During a storm delay, Garcia suggested in a TV interview that Woods could have kept the crowd from cheering if he had been paying closer attention. Later that evening, Woods said he understood from marshals that Garcia had already hit. "Not real surprising that hes complaining about something," Woods added, which only fired up the Spaniard. Garcia said the next day to Sky Sports, "Hes not the nicest guy on tour." Woods wound up winning The Players Championship, improving his record to 6-0 when he plays with Garcia in the final group on the weekend. Woods was at media day Monday for the AT&T National, where he is the defending champion, when he received the final question about Garcia and gave the one-word answer. Garcia offered a more detailed response when asked in England if he would ever call Woods. "First of all, I dont have his number," Garcia said. "And secondly, I did nothing wrong and dont have anything to say to him. And he wouldnt pick up the phone, anyway." Garcia conceded their dislike for each other has been "going on for a long time." "The problem is, Im one of the guys that has to say something," Garcia said. "A lot of people think about it, but dont want to say anything. He can and will beat me a lot of times, but is not going to step on me. Im not afraid of him." Woods has competed against more than 50 players in match play since 1997, though he has never played Garcia. The Spaniard was asked he would like to face Woods in the Ryder Cup next year at Gleneagles. "Its great, and it is what it is, and it doesnt mean I cannot play with him," Garcia replied. "Its just another player -- obviously, a good player. Its just when Im playing with someone I enjoy, theres a bit more talking going around, and youre playing with someone that you dont fancy as much, youre just a little bit quiet." Brian Propp Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. Jakub Voracek Jersey . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. http://www.cheapflyersjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-scott-laughton-jersey .J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. LANDOVER, Md. -- Maybe this time, the Dallas Cowboys really are ready to win without Tony Romo. Certainly a turnover-free Dak Prescott helps in that regard.From the last game of the 2013 season through the end of last season, Dallas went 1-13 when Romo was unavailable. With fourth-round draft pick Prescott suddenly elevated to the starting QB spot when Romo hurt his back late in the preseason, the Cowboys will take a 1-1 record into next weeks game against the Chicago Bears.Prescott was 22 for 30 for 292 yards plus a 6-yard scamper for a touchdown in a 27-23 victory at the Washington Redskins on Sunday. That followed a one-point loss to the New York Giants in Week One.You see him do the right thing -- and good things -- when hes under pressure, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. Hes like a sponge. ... He has an overachiever attitude about soaking it up.The best sign for the future, according to teammates, was the way Prescott was calm during the 10-play, 80-yard drive in the fourth quarter that led to the go-ahead points on former Redskins running back Alfred Morris 4-yard TD run.He treated it like it was the first play of the game, receiver Dez Bryant said. It says a lot about him as a person. He was ready for this game. He is built for this kind of stuff.What else we learned from Cowboys-Redskins:FIXES NEEDED: Washingtons game at the New York Giants next Sunday becomes quite significant. Coach Jay Grudens Redskins are 0-2 ; the Giants are 2-0. We can hang our heads and cry all we want to, Gruden said, but the fact of the matter is, we got a game at 1 oclock next Sunday. Asked in what ways his team regressed after winning the NFC East last season, Gruden replied: I cant put my finger on them right now. I think its a combination of a lot of things. Weve got to fix them, quick. Among the problems: QB Kirk Cousins now has three interceptions and one TD this season.RECEIVING LINE: Not only is Bryant going to become more and more involved in Dallas offense -- after one catch for 8 yards in Week One, he had seven for 102 yards against Washington -- but it looks as if Cole Beasley could be Prescotts No. 2 target going forward , rather than Terrance Williams. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys. Through two games, Beasley has 13 receptions for 140 yards; Williams has three catches for 34 yards, with zero targets Sunday.NO ADJUSTMENTS: Redskins DL Ricky Jean Francois wants to see his defensive coaches make more adjustments to counter what opposing offenses do. He sees a trend going back to last season. Every team that adjusts to us, we dont adjust to them, Jean Francois said. Every team we play against, it just feels like they see something and they pounce on it and they keep doing it -- and it feels like were just not responding. Dallas ran for 102 yards on 30 carries, and Jean Francois said it looked to him as if the Redskins were stuffing inside runs, so the Cowboys started taking rushing plays outside -- and Washington never accounted for that.ZEKES BALL SECURITY: Seems a safe bet that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, the No. 4 overall draft pick, is going to put in extra time working on protecting the football: He fumbled twice against Washington. Morris said he told Elliott: You have to have short-term memory. At the same time, youve got to be able to take care of the ball. If you dont take care of the ball, then you cant be on the field. Thats just the way it goes.DURANT STEPS UP: For a Dallas defense missing DeMarcus Lawrence, Randy Gregory and Rolando McClain because of suspensions, a familiar face could wind up with a bigger role than expected. LB Justin Durant played last season with Atlanta, but hes back with the Cowboys, and the nine-year pro broke up a fourth-and-1 pass with just under two minutes to play Sunday. He cut in front of a ball intended for Pierre Garcon, knocked it down. No other way that I can get that feeling -- especially being in somebody elses place and feeling the air come out of the building, Durant said.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
