1999 PGA Championship

Everyone remembers Sergio’s shot from the tree roots and leap on the 16th hole (left) during the final round of the PGA Championship at Medinah. But let’s not forget the glare Garcia gave Woods after birdieing the par-three 13th that day (right). We know Tiger never did.

2000 Battle at Bighorn

Another irksome moment for Tiger’s memory bank: Sergio’s effusive celebration over a flu-ridden Woods in the Battle at Bighorn, their made-for-TV match play exhibition.

2002 U.S. Open

The skies wept and Garcia wasn’t happy either, saying that play should have been suspended due to torrential downpours during the second round of the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black. Officials would have halted play, Sergio suggested, had Tiger been on the course.

2006 Open Championship

Garcia shows up in canary yellow, and Tiger beats him black-and-blue. After claiming the British Open with a Sunday 67 to his battered playing partner’s 73, Tiger texts a friend: “I just bludgeoned Tweety Bird.”

2006 Ryder Cup

Not that Tweety takes it lying down. Two months after the British Open, Garcia let the world know who he hoped to play in the Ryder Cup. “Fortunately for us,” he says, “[Woods] doesn't have a great Ryder Cup record, so I'm looking forward to hopefully going out there and meeting him two or three times.”

2013 Players Championship

At the Players Championship, Garcia charges Woods with distractive tactics, all but blaming Tiger for his own errant shot. “Boo-hoo,” Woods responds, though not quite in those words. “He called me a whiner. He’s probably right,” Garcia says. "But that's also probably the first thing he's told you guys that's true in 15 years. I know what he's like. You guys are finding out.”

2013

In a now-infamous response to a softball question, Garcia cracks that he plans to have Woods over for dinner every night during the U.S. Open. Sergio promises to serve fried chicken, only to end up eating crow. He apologized during a press conference at the European Tour's BMW PGA Championship.

“It’s already done with,” Woods responds when asked by reporters about the fried chicken hubbub. Another incident in the past, with plenty of history still to make.
