Tiger and Sergio: Not a love affair

36-hole leader Sergio Garcia will tee off with Tiger Woods, who trails by one, in the final group on Saturday afternoon.

As some of you may recall, when Woods beat Garcia, who was wearing all yellow, at Hoylake in the 2006 Open Championship, he reportedly sent a text to a friend that read, “I just bludgeoned Tweety Bird.” (Yes, bludgeoned — he has a way with words, doesn’t he?)

What’s the career tally for Tiger vs. Sergio pairings? Well, since 1999, they’ve played together 19 times. Spoiler: Tiger has the winning record.
