Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia have ended their recent spat by being pictured shaking hands during preparations for the US Open.

The pair fell out after Garcia felt that crowd noise was generated by Woods at the Players Championship in May.

The cause was not helped when the Spaniard made a comment regarding 'fried chicken' in reference to inviting Woods round for dinner. The food is stereotypically associated with black people in the southern US.

García headed to the US Open tournament at Merion intending to apologise to Woods for the comment made at a European Tour gala dinner last month and the handshake was pictured and posted on Twitter.

World number one Woods refused to comment on the handshake when questioned by reporters, although both men are due to face the media again on Tuesday.

Woods is favourite for the second major of the year, and is on the hunt for his 15th major, but it would be his first in five years.
