Tiger Woods has expressed his thoughts that he is keen to move on from the controversy involving a comment made by Sergio Garcia about 'fried chicken'.

At last week's European Tour awards dinner, Garcia joked he would invite the American for dinner to settle their recent argument and serve fried chicken, a food stereotypically associated with black people in the deep south of America.

Woods insisted to the BBC: "It's already done with. It's time to move on." 

The spat started earlier this month at the Players Championship after Garcia complained at the level of crowd noise, something he believed to be instigated by Woods.

The Spaniard has not yet apologised directly to Tiger Woods, and allegedly plans to at the US Open next month.

Woods added: "I think he did [apologise], not in person though. So I'd have to fly to Wentworth? I was at home."

Garcia escaped any punishment for the comments made at the dinner and this is something that Woods is not surprised about.

The 37-year-old continued: "It's happened my entire life. It exists all around the world, not just in the sport of golf.

"I know there are a lot of people that are trying to make a difference and trying to make it more fair for all."

The pair are not due to meet again until the second major of the year takes place at the Merion Golf Club in Philadelphia from June 13.
