European Tour Chief George O'Grady: "Most of Sergio's friends are colored athletes"

BMW PGA Championship - Previews

European Tour chief George O’Grady tried to quash the Sergio Garcia fried chicken controversy on Sky Sports. It did not go well. Trying to explain why no further action was needed, he pointed out that Sergio Garcia had many friends who were “colored athletes” in the U.S.

O’Grady said: “We accept all races on the European Tour, we take it very strongly; most of Sergio’s friends happen to be very, er, are coloured athletes in the United States.”

O’Grady later issued his own apology. Fortunately those European knaves are balanced out by the tolerance unlike any other at Augusta National.
