Sergio Garcia, the day after saying he would serve Tiger Woods friend chicken for dinner, quickly apologized on Wednesday possibly because his endorsement deals were on the line had he not.
Two of Garcia’s most prominent sponsors, Taylor Made and Adidas, released a joint statement on the matter.
“Sergio Garcia’s recent comment was offensive and in no way aligns with TaylorMade-Adidas Golf’s values and corporate culture. We have spoken with Sergio directly and he clearly has regret for his statement and we believe he is sincere. We discussed with Sergio that his comments are clearly out of bounds and we are continuing to review the matter.”
