Sergio Garcia Details The Chat He Had With Padraig Harrington At McIlroy's Wedding

Watching the relationship between Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia grow closer seemingly as a direct result of the Irishman being a pundit while the Spaniard won his first major at the Masters last month was great to watch.

While it all started out with a laugh at Sergio's expense, Harrington was able to put his personal beef aside and analyse how and why this was Garcia's time, and when it emerged that both men were guests at Rory's wedding we were all wondering if they were going to bury the hatchet.

And bury it they did. Harrington explained after the Masters that his comments had caused a bit of an 'elephant in the room' and the two had a chat at Rory McIlroy's wedding to sort things out.

While Padraig didn't go in to too much detail, Sergio did as he was speaking ahead of The Players Championship this weekend.

I think at the end of the day, we both respect each other.

I mean, we've had our differences here and there, but you know, we've had great talks at the Ryder Cup and also at Rory's wedding. He was trying to apologise for something he said on Sunday, and I was like, it's fine. It doesn't matter.

It doesn't bother me at all. I respect you. You respect me. We're fine.

There's nothing wrong with us. At the end of the day, I think that's the most important thing.

He's a nice guy, I think I'm a nice guy, and we can all get along fine.

It seems as though Harrington wanted to apologise for joking that he wouldn't want to see Garcia win the Masters, which the Spaniard clearly took in good spirits.

Harrington was outstanding on punditry duties for the historic tournament, and while we'd love to see more from him in the role, we're sure he wants to focus on actually participating in big tournaments in the near future.

It's good to see that the two have patched things up, and it may be unprecedented to have seen the restoration of their relationship play out in front of our eyes as this one did.
