    I’m sure he still got the appearance money so it wasn’t a complete lost cause. Apparently the Saudi’s gave those guys (Brooks, Rose, DJ, Sergio, etc.) 1 million a pop.

    I’ve been a Sergio fan for awhile but this is inexcusable. Not sure if I would let one damaged green go but multiple is a no go.



    I defend rahm for his passion which is something that’s kind of cultural but this is just idiotic and he should have been dq’d and maybe even forfeit all or some of his appearance fee.

    Suspend him from majors play, see if incident repeats. If he damages 5 greens (****, 1 green) intentionally, that's absolutely unprofessional and should be dealt with accordingly.



    ****!

    Yea. 5 greens. First I knew of that. Any video yet. What is “ damage “. Is he taking full wedge divots or not fixing spike marks ?



    If I were he I’d retire. He’s got enough $. Life’s too short to be that tortured. A tantrum that lasts 5 greens ? That’s some serious pent up anguish. Homicides happen the exact same way.

    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 “.




    LOL!! Blade, we really need to play together sometime. You’d see this torture first hand.

    Damaging 5 greens is absurd. Especislly if it's bad enough that the groups behind him kept complaining to officials.



    I'm surprised he was even allowed to finish his round. After the first 2 damaged greens they should of pulled him off the course and DQ him then.

    No

    Why ?
  • Dave230Dave230 Members Posts: 3,786 ✭✭
    Wonder what the damage was? Damaging can vary from taking hacks out of the greens to spike marks depending on the player complaining.



    Not a good look regardless and the fact he said in frustration admits it was intentional.

    Deserves to be suspended. Spitting in the cup, constantly acting like a 3 year old. Beyond unacceptable.



    Never liked the guy from many years ago. Thought he changed when he got married and had a kid but sadly not.



    Guy should read the book The Power of Now. Life changing and give him some appreciation for what he has in life.



    I’m embarrassed for him.

    Sergio... you damaged '5 greens?', what the heck, are you that much of an a#####e?




    https://www.golf-mon...sconduct-173192



    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 !!!

    I was working there today. He dropped a big F bomb after missing birdie on 8, then smacked his club into the green...it was up on the top shelf away from the hole, but still smashed. Reed's pairing was next, said nothing, but Campillo was next and pulled an official over and complained. He pointed out damage and was talking in Spanish with the official and then in English mentioned damage on holes 5 and 6.

    If this had happened in the U.S., commentators would have just called him a fiery Spaniard and talked about how passionate he is. The tour would have imposed some sort of inconsequential fine and hidden it from the public.



    Sergio is good, though. He constantly makes you think he’s finally grown up and then constantly disappoints.

    It was on the front 9 with no TV cameras and there are only about 3 dozen people on the grounds watching the tournament and none of them thought to whip out their phone and to film it. Too bad. Would have been good theater.

    Very little tv coverage for the earlier groups. I didn't see cameras until Dechambeau started. They may have had some on the final three holes for Garcia et al, but they didn't for the first nine at least.

    What a joke of a tournament. I didn't know this was such a minor league event.

    I am exaggerating about the number of spectators, but it is VERY thin.

    I'm a Euro. And Sergio (The golfer) 'fan'.



    Damaging 5 greens is no joke. And should be treated accordingly.



    I suggest giving him until July off to think about it......
