Sergio Garcia wants everyone to know he and Tiger will be fine

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Among the accepted truths of the PGA Tour is that Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia are not frequent texting partners. The friction extends back more than a decade. There was Garcia's off-putting celebration when he beat Woods in a made-for-TV match. There was Garcia complaining about Woods receiving preferential treatment en route to Woods' win in the 2002 U.S. Open. And of course, there was an altercation at the 2013 Players, when Garcia blamed Woods for causing a distraction, and then later made an off-color joke at an awards dinner.

The two have been paired since -- in the 2013 BMW Championship -- but the third round of the Masters is another matter. The two play at 1:15 p.m. Saturday, but don't fret, Garcia says.
