It appears for now that the bad blood is over between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia.

Woods and Garcia met on the driving range at the Merion West practice course on Monday and shook hands. The Golf Channel took video of the handshake and the picture above is from that video. The U.S. Open starts on Thursday.

It is reportedly the first time the two have been face to face since Garcia made racial comments directed at Woods May 21 at a European Tour function outside of London.

Woods and Garcia had been at it for weeks, resulting in a verbal spate at the Players Championship about course etiquette. It turned into a full-out verbal brawl last month as Garcia said he was going to serve Woods fried chicken when asked what he would serve at dinner if Woods was there.

Garcia later apologized for the remarks,  saying they were "wrong, hurtful and inappropriate."

Neither golfer had much to say about the handshake, though.

ESPN said Woods declined to reply on what was said during the handshake. Both players are expected to address the media on Tuesday.

"I'm not going there," Woods said about the handshake.
