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.

    • TST Member Review - The Tee Claw
      Product Name: The Tee Claw
      Product Type: Tee Holder for Golf Mats
      Product Website/URL: www.teeclaw.com
      Cost: $15 Ratings (out of 5):
      Quality: 4
      Value: 4
      Effectiveness: 4
      Durability: tbd
      Esthetic Appeal: 4   Link to Discussion Thread   My Member Revie I was able to take the Tee Claw to one of our open local ranges on Sunday. As stated above, I cut down a few tees ahead of time to the right height so I wouldn't have to do it at the range. I set the Tee Claw in the mat below then put my driver next to it to get the right height. This mat is an All Turf mat, which is similar to the Real Feel mats with a little less dense weave. The mat is made of woven fibers. At the range, the first thing I noticed was this range has two types of mats; a cheap imitation turf mat where the rubber tee goes and a tighter weave mat. The Tee Claw had no issue with the woven mat, but would not grab the cheap mat fibers. The video below shows this. The cheap mat only has fibers that run vertically and are not woven together. Undaunted, I used the woven mat for the test. I set the Tee Claw up with just one lanyard pulled straight back. This distance is about 30 inches. I hooked the tee under the mat with a tee as is suggested in the Tee Claw site video. The tee fits snug into the Tee Claw base. I used my driver to test the set up. The Tee Claw moved after the shot, but the tee stayed in place. I was worried that I would lose the tee, but this didn't happen. This will save on tees if this happens routinely. I took three swings with this set up. The Tee Claw came loose after the shot, but stayed on the mat.
      Next, I set up the Tee Claw with two lanyards. The second lanyard was set up as a guide for my swing path. This will come in handy as a training aid.
      After hitting, the tee stayed in. The Tee Claw moved. You can see below, it recoiled and twisted a bit. It took a few seconds to untangle it and set it back up. If you are the kind of player who rapid fire hits balls, this may get annoying. But if you are like me and take your time, the extra set up time is not an issue. If I am doing slow motion drills, I would use the rubber tee. But once I am hitting to observe ball flight, I would use the Tee Claw instead.
      Lastly, mats seem to be the key for the Tee Claw to work. Good mats with a weave work the best. I have two mats at home, the All Turf mat I showed above and one I got when buying a Birdie Ball net. They are below. I apologize for not cleaning the dead grass off the mat! It was cold out. The Tee Claw had no issues with either of these mats. I would take the mat type into consideration when you purchase the Tee Claw.
      At $15, the Tee Claw is not a big investment and worth the money for being able to set your tee height while practicing on mats. I've resorted to cutting down rubber tees to the right height before, but this is a better way. Try it out!

      I can't recall ever quitting for a reason other than rain.  And I will play through a certain amount, especially if I have a cart with a windshield.
