Sergio Garcia was disqualified from the Saudi tournament on the European tour for damaging a green in a fit of rage.

Not the first time he’s done something in frustration on the green !!!

    Just when I thought it was ok to like Sergio he does this and totally reminds me of why I despised him for so long. Thank you Sergio for bringing me back to reality.

    Good! If it was the weak US tour he would had got away with it. Unruly behaviour is not accepted or the norm on the ET unlike the US tour.

    Unacceptable from a professional. Even in college walking in a through line was taboo and the pros still pay attention to them, and pat down their own spike marks after holing out.

    The PGA Tour would not tolerate any pro damaging multiple greens in a tournament.

    Was hideki punished that time aside from Poulter’s shaming?

    JT was not suspended a couple of years ago, so I guess no.

    I heard he damaged the green due to his bottom lip dragging along the ground. He continues to act like a 13 year old trapped in an adults body.

    As much as I feel a suspension would be warranted on this one, he’s got star and drawing power so it is out of the question I think from the European Tour and the PGA prob wouldn’t touch it either. All about the money.

    As dumb as this is i feel sorry for Sergio. As well as he hit it yesterday he’d have shot 64 if he made even 40 % inside 10 ft. He made zero. And hasn’t really made a putt since winning then masters.



    I wonder sometimes if this isn’t **** for some people. Punishment from a past life. “ hey you’re the best ball striker on earth. But you’ll never make a putt “.

    Same with Hideki. Aside from Poulter’s twitter rant, no penalty was issued as far as I can find even though an official had to fix the damage.

    How can you feel sorry for him? He’s holding the putter, and he’s hitting the ball towards the hole. If it doesn’t go in it’s his fault, no-one else’s. There’s not some sort of massive conspiracy against him. He’s simply a poor putter with an even poorer attitude, and deserves zero sympathy.

    I feel sorry for him because I’ve lived it. Albeit on a much smaller scale. But same thing.



    His attitude yesterday during all this was great. He joked the whole round. Apparently today it came to a head. I haven’t seen the video. So I’m only speaking in the abstract. The bigger picture of the torment of hitting 14-16 greens a round. With good proximity and not making a single putt. For years. It’s enough to drive anyone over the edge.



    I’m able to have sympathy for the guy without excusing what he did. He was wrong. Should have been dqed and fined. And no doubt will pay in embarrassment. But I still feel for the situation.

    He won at the Valderrama Masters and finished second at the Nedbank Golf Challenge last year. He's playing a lot better.
