Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia took the first step to resolving their long-running feud on Monday morning at the US Open, as the two men shook hands at the Merion Golf Club practice range.

According to Derek Lawrenson of the Daily Mail, the exchange was initiated by Garcia, and it is believed they agreed to meet on Monday night for a longer chat.

This was the first time the two had met face to face since Garcia made the infamous “fried chicken” comment at the European Tour Awards dinner in London last month.

Garcia issued an apology for the remark and said he planned to reach out to Woods during the U.S. Open.

“I want to apologize to Tiger and anybody that I could have offended,” Garcia said. “I feel sick about it. I’m truly, truly sorry. And I hope we can kind of settle things down and hopefully move on.”

Jack Nicklaus is probably happy the two are working to resolve the issue with one another.  He called the feud “stupid” last month.

Even John Daly weighed in on the spat, tweeting out:  “Tiger and Sergio I respect both of you and your golf so much plz end this y’all are so good for golf.”

Both players will give press conferences on Tuesday, when it is expected they will finally draw a line under their long-running feud.

Woods and Garcia will not play with each other for the first two rounds.

Woods will play alongside Rory McIlroy and Masters champion Adam Scott, while Garcia is paired with former Open champions Padraig Harrington and Stewart Cink.
