Back in 2007, Padraig Harrington defeated Sergio Garcia in the British Open in a four hole playoff at Carnoustie. This was his first Major Championship victory. Paddy went on to win the British Open the following year. He also won the PGA Championship that year. The person he defeated for the 2008 PGA Championship was none other than Sergio Garcia… again. (Poor Sergio, so close.)

Well, it appears there are no hard feelings between the two golfers as they were seen together at the Chengdu Research Base in China. Both players are in China for the Volvo China Open at Luxehills International Country Club.

The European Tour stars and Ryder Cup teammates visited Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, where they held Ya Yun, a seven month-old cub which is part of the largest captive born Giant Panda population in the world.

I really have no idea if the two golfers ever disliked each other, but regardless, who could stay mad with a baby panda in the room?
