UNDATED (AP) - A timeline of quotes in the verbal sparring between Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods. It dates to May 11 at The Players Championship, when Garcia was preparing to hit his second shot on the par-5 second hole and was disrupted by cheers from the gallery surrounding Woods in the trees because he took 5-wood from the bag:

MAY 11

“Well, obviously Tiger was on the left and it was my shot to hit. He moved all of the crowd that he needed to move. I waited for that. I wouldn’t say that he didn’t see that I was ready, but you do have a feel when the other guy is going to hit, and right as I was in the top of the backswing, I think he must have pulled like a 5-wood or a 3-wood and obviously everybody started screaming. So that didn’t help very much.” _ Garcia during a rain delay in the third round of The Players Championship.


“Well, the marshals, they told me he already hit, so I pulled a club and was getting ready to play my shot, and then I hear his comments afterwards, and not real surprising that he’s complaining about something.” _ Woods after the third round was suspended by darkness.


“That’s fine. At least I’m true to myself. I know what I’m doing, and he can do whatever he wants.” _ Garcia after hearing what Woods said.


MAY 12

“I’m not going to lie, he’s not my favorite guy to play with. He’s not the nicest guy on tour.” _ Garcia after the third round was completed.


“It sounds like I was the bad guy here. I was the victim. I don’t have any regrets of anything.” _ Garcia, asked if he would have handled anything differently, after Woods won The Players Championship.


MAY 20

“No.” _ Woods at media day for the AT&T National, when asked if he had given any thought of contacting Garcia to put their dispute behind them.
