How could it possibly surprise you? He's been guilty of this stuff for years, time and time again.

I give him a bit of a pass in this case though, because it's close to Augusta and the tournament ran longer than scheduled. He did attempt to play today and no one wanted to stay till Monday. It's fine because Arnie should call him out for disrespecting him, which is the worst thing that can happen to a golfer's reputation. Plus it's invite only, so I sincerely hope he gets left out next year for this stunt.

would you happen to have a link to your source on this information? I was wondering if jumping out of the tree caused an injury

" McGirt said when they climbed into a van to be taken back to the clubhouse, Garcia handed him the scorecard and said, "I'm out of here."

He officially withdrew.

Garcia had said earlier in the week that he was low on energy and enthusiasm and "I just want to go home." He plans to return at the Masters ."

Anybody else notice how sergio is always exchanging words with somebody in the crowd?He done it last week and I remember it happended last yr in the fed ex playoffs that was in new york where he was exchanging heated words with the spectators.He also hit on the group in front of him last week.That group was the ausie chambers.Chambers was making his putting stroke when the ball landed in a greenside bunker 10-15 yards behind him.

When he first joined the Tour Sergio seemed very energetic and great with the crowd.  These days, he seems like a grumpy old man, angry at the world because he didn't live up to his hype or potential.

i can see that...but i also think that golf isnt his main priority in life...or at least its not what gives him the most joy.  it seems like more of his job than his passion.

I think sergio is the biggest womanizer in the tour. Just not talked about but he gets with plenty of girls. I'm starting to think he dislike playing guess it really doesn't matter since adidas already threw couple mills at him.

How in the world do you know this stuff (he gets plenty of girls)?  The guy went 10 feet up in a tree to hit a ball. He just competed in several tournaments - I haven't looked, but it looks like his schedule is much more grueling than Lefty, TW, or Rory.

I think he does a lot because he feels he has to. I could be completely mistaken...

I think he'll get a pass on this one. Only because he dosen't matter that much anymore.

I had high hopes for Sergio and the potential competition he posed to TW.  Unfortunately, the swing changes, the god awful pre-shot waggle and continued putting woes seems to have taken his enjoyment out of the game.  If this isn't the case, his body language suggest otherwise.  He has never hid his contempt for TW or TW's fame and fortune.  Problem is, Sergio wasn't golfer enough to back up his tuff words.  I think his feelings towards Tiger are why Sergio takes the Ryder Cup so seriously.  Sergio does have a good Ryder Cup record (16-8-4) which is much better than TW's 13-14-2.

    • What Are Your 2016 Golf Goals? Official Thread
      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.

    • Standing on Tee Marker for Aiding a Swing
      However, the ruling given by the RBs that, when Preferred Lies are in operation, a player may place his ball on a stray tee already in the ground, may suggest that he make take advantage of the tee marker.  A tee being defined as a device. But a tee is designed for the specific purpose of raising the ball off the ground. The tee marker is not designed to provide a footstand.
    • Your worst golf bargain
      Golf can be an obsession in terms of equipment, so my worse bargain this past offseason was stock piling several boxes of Golf Balls.  I over did it ten fold...duh.  
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      @pumaAttack, please read what I've said, I've answered your questions and spent my free time trying to help you. I'll try to be as clear as I can. It's not just about hitting positions or angles, you have to consider the entire motion and how you arrived there. The golf swing is a dynamic movement. There is no "perfect" A4 or A6, etc. @iacas has already answered this but if you go shallow to steep (what you're doing) the sweetspot is going to want to kick out. You can make compensations so it looks ok but it's not an effective way to hit the ball. It's going to cost you contact control, face control and speed. If you can go steep to shallow you'll have a better chance of creating the most speed and best contact. A sweetspot kicking out (which yours is) leads to pulls, inconsistent contact and glancing blows. We've answered your questions but here is more detail (more detail than most students should get): Shallow to steep = Not Effective, the weight of the clubhead is going to want to be "thrown" out which will have the club working across the ball. It will also widen the arc so in order not to fat it you have to make compensations with your hands/body. Steep to shallow = Most Effective, potentially creates more speed, on downswing you can load into the ground and rotate while still swinging out (without trying to swing out). Easier to rotate and maintain your tilt because if the sweetspot is kicking out (widens the arc) you have to do something to make room. Very, very few good players swing across the ball on the downswing. Nobody is out to get you, I had no idea you were still on Evolvr, it would have been helpful to post something like "Here is my latest swing, here's what my Evolvr instructor said my priority is". If you did I would have never posted what I did. I was just trying to help. If @iacas offers his opinion, rather than take the defensive route, give him the benefit of the double and listen to what he's saying, he knows what he's talking about. Even after this post I get the feeling you'll want to say "But my A6 is perfect!", I'd recommend you take a look at these threads.
