Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia ended a dramatic weekend of golf in a place that made each comfortable.
Garcia finished as the victim.
Woods, as usual, was the winner.
Protagonists need antagonists and like Tweety needed Sylvester and Bugs Bunny needed Yosemite Sam, on his weekend at The Players, the cartoonish Garcia was a tailor-made villain for Woods.
The kind that comes so close to winning only to end up as roadkill.
And though Woods wasn't going there, Garcia's petulant assaults on his character - calling him "not the nicest guy on Tour" - may have even given the World No. 1 the boost he needed to win on a course he doesn't particularly enjoy for the first time in 12 years.
"I thought I handled the situation well and really played well today," Woods deflected when asked about Garcia.
Winners, of course, can afford to take the high road.
Garcia, on the other hand, was unrepentant when asked if there was anything he'd do differently after...
BEST OF MAXIM
I’m not one that likes the thought of fans being able to call penalties on players from their televisions at home. And with the recent news at The Masters, on Tiger Woods illegal drop, this is just going to make everything worse. But after last week’s TPC Sawgrass and another Tiger Woods controversial drop, the tour needs to do something. If the best player in the world doesn’t...

We had a name for Sergio Garcia many years ago after he imploded during a round three at the Masters and proceeded to step up to the podium and blame the media for his bad round.
That name reared its ugly head again during the 3rd round of The Players Championship when Garcia accused Tiger Woods of costing him a shot on the second hole by pulling a club...
Tiger Woods had the last word against Sergio Garcia by winning The Players Championship on Sunday.
Woods ended a weekend of heated words with Garcia by doing what he does best - closing out tournaments, even if he let this one turn into a tense duel over the final hour at the TPC Sawgrass. Tied with Garcia with two holes to play, Woods won by finding land on the last two holes for...
Odds for the 2013 U.S. Open have been released and to no surprise, Tiger Woods is a overwhelming favorite to take home the major.
Sergio Garcia lost the tournament lead that he shared with Tiger Woods on the 17th hole of Sunday's final round of the PGA Players Championship when he shot the ball into the water twice on the way to a quadruple-bogey. Garcia followed it up by hitting the ball into the water again on the 18th and finished with a double-bogey on the final hole.
The video here, set to the...
One bad tee shot made Tiger Woods appear vulnerable. One clutch par putt and a critical birdie made him look invincible.
Woods closed out The Players Championship on Sunday like he has so many other tournaments: hitting big shot after big shot down the stretch.
His latest unflappable finish helped him secure his fourth victory of 2013 and capture the richest prize on the PGA Tour...
Tonight I kept it simple and sweet. Two topics, golf and homosexuality in sports.
Thanks to Nick Masuda of Golfweek Magazine for coming on the show and having an awesome conversation about Tiger Woods and The Players Championship. Tiger has been so dominant and we explored how much he has improved.
So much has happened since Jason Collins came out a few weeks ago. Tonight was the...
Some Twitter comedian observed that Tiger Woods apparently retained ownership of Sergio Garcia in his pre-nup with Elin. That's harsh, but this...
Sergio Garcia told NBC during the weather delay at The Players Championship on Saturday that Tiger Woods might have caused him to hit a bad shot on the second hole during their round together. Garcia blocked his second shot deep into the trees from the right side of the
Sergio Garcia has had his share of painful final round moments throughout his long career. The Players Championship, and more specifically the 17th hole at Sawgrass, was host to one of his finer moments, though.
Sunday, however, was not one of those finer moments. Garcia quadruple bogeyed 17, falling out of a share of the lead, and effectively giving away the tournament. Tiger Woods...
