Sergio Garcia says outrage over his 'fried chicken' comment was a learning experience

Posted at 5:05 PM by Mike Walker | Categories: Sergio Garcia, Tiger Woods

The 2012 golf season had many highlights to choose from -- Adam Scott at the Masters, Phil Mickelson at Muirfield, Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer sharing a laugh at Bay Hill after Tiger reclaimed the No. 1 ranking-- but the lowlight of the season is pretty clear: Sergio Garcia making a "fried chicken" joke at Woods' expense after the two longtime rivals had a spat the Players Championship.

Garcia has apologized repeatedly since making the remark. In a new interview with CNN Living Golf's Shane O'Donoghue [above], Garcia talks about being in the center of a media storm following Garcia saying he wanted to invite Woods to dinner and "serve fried chicken."

"It was horrible, but what's done is done. Everybody knows how I feel about it, so I think they should be fine with it and if not, it's kind of their problem," he said. "The most important thing is learning from all those things.

"I'm making sure that all those experiences make you stronger, a better person and things like that. I think that I've learned from those things and I just need to keep getting better at it, and hopefully keep making people happy."
