Garcia approached Woods on the practice range Monday at Merion for a handshake, and little more.
“We didn’t discuss anything,” Woods said. “Just came up and said, ‘Hi,’ and that was it.”
Asked if Garcia apologized, Woods said, “No. It’s already done. We’ve already gone through it all. It’s time for the U.S. Open, and we tee it up in two days.”
That handshake might be their only meeting this week.
Garcia said the range on Monday was not the right time to apologize to Woods, but that the world’s No. 1 player was gone when Garcia was done practicing, and the opening day of U.S. Open practice was delayed three times by rain.
They are on opposite sides of the draw — Garcia plays this morning and Friday afternoon, Woods tees off this afternoon and Friday morning. Unless they are near each other on the leaderboard on the weekend, they might not see each other again.
“He considers the matter closed. He’s moved on,” Garcia said. “And I’m happy that he feels that way, so hopefully we can do the same thing.”
