WATCH Sergio Garcia’s club toss for the ages

Published

on

Do we chalk this up to the dangers of repressed rage? Sergio Garcia seemed just a little too cool with his 13 during the Masters….

The Spaniard was anything but cool at TPC San Antonio, Friday, giving a furious axe-toss to his driver after an unsatisfying tee shot at the par-4 fifth hole.

Garcia then spent a considerable amount of time searching for his Callaway Rogue Sub Zero in the woods. His drive ended up well left of the green at the 342-yard hole. Compounding matters further, he proceeded to shank his approach shot across the green, eventually making bogey.

Here’s the full horror.

At 2-over, Garcia is one stroke outside the cut line at the time of this writing.

This seems like an insensitive time to plug our Sergio Garcia: WITB, but what the heck.

    This along with his grip, grip, grip, regrip, grip, regrip, regrip, grip… makes him intolerable

    I’m glad the old immature Sergio isn’t completely gone despite now being married and having a kid.

    Walk of shame in the bushes.
    Love how the caddie just walks and he like go fetch your own club!!!

    Probably a lack of sleep from being a new dad mixed with a bad round and Spanish blood.
    Callaway will build him a new one.

    I really like Sergio, but this is ridiculous!!! He must forget what he represents and the people who admire him. Keep it together man!!!

    He has always been a whiny little brat. Marriage and fatherhood haven’t changed anything.

    Sergio got to luv him shows he is human. Like the way his temper lets loose every once in awhile. Kinda funny in a way when he looses it. Especially when he thru the shoe episode. And the bunker thing.

    I hope that Rich Lerner doesn’t say anything about this. Sergio’s wife will be all over him saying that he is making fun of Sergio’s ax throwing family members.

Hungover Eddie Pepperell is the real winner of The Open

Published

on

Eddie Pepperell is never dull. The Englishman’s candor, articulateness, and skill with a pen make him a great follow on Twitter and beyond.

But even given standard Peperellian forthrightness, it was surprising to hear this: Pepperell was hungover during the final round at Carnoustie…a round in which he fired a 4-under 67.

Pepperell finished tied for sixth at 5-under, three strokes behind Francesco Molinari, and he offered this admission in his final-round press conference.

“I was a little hungover…I had too much to drink last night. And I was so frustrated yesterday, that today was really, I wouldn’t say a write-off, but I didn’t feel I was in the golf tournament. Whether I shot 69 or 73 today, it wouldn’t have been heartbreaking. But as it happens, I shot 67. So, you know, it’s a funny game.”

Hitting the course before the winds kicked up, Pepperell birdied the third, fifth, sixth, and 14th holes before rolling in another at the 17th.

He clarified that he’s no wino.

“Listen, I wouldn’t always have a drink the night before. Sometimes I have a few drinks. Tiger is minus-7, he didn’t have a drink last night, I bet. Proper athlete…I didn’t really have that much to drink, just I’m a lightweight, yeah.”

Pepperell clarified that he felt okay this morning, but woke up in the middle of the night feeling poorly. he said. Then it was time to sit back and watch as the leaders battled Carnoustie’s back nine.

Proper athlete or no, Pepperell finished tied with Woods at 5 under.

Pat Perez: The R&A “do it right, not like the USGA”

Published

on

Pat Perez opened The Open, as it were, with a 2-under 69, and at the time of this writing, he’s 4 under for the second round and tied for the lead.

Clearly, there’s something Double P likes about links golf. And when he was asked whether he was surprised by how receptive the greens at Carnoustie were after his opening round, Perez shook his head with conviction and said.

“They (the R&A) do it right, not like the USGA…They’ve got the opposite [philosophy] here. I told them, you guys have it right, let the course get baked, but you’ve got the greens receptive. They’re not going to run and be out of control. They could have easily had the greens just like the fairway, but they didn’t. The course is just set up perfect.”

“The U.S. Open could have been like this more if they wanted to. They could have made the greens a bit more receptive,” Perez said. “These greens are really flat compared to Shinnecock. So that was kind of the problem there is they let it get out of control and they made the greens too hard.”

Pat Perez has no problem speaking his mind. While it has gotten him in trouble in the past, you have to respect his candor. The interesting question, as I asked in the Morning 9, is how many Tour pros agree him?

Sure, it’s unlikely any of Perez’s compatriots will join him publicly in his “R&A does it right, USGA does it wrong” stance, but it’d be very interesting to know what percentage are of the same mind.

68 at the British Open in the morning, golf with hickories at St Andrews in the afternoon

Published

on

Yes, golf fans, just another day in the charmed life (or week, at least) of one Brandon Stone.

Stoney (as I assume his friends call him), came to Carnoustie on the heels of a final-round 60 to win the Scottish Open. All he did in his opening round was fire a 3-under 68. Not bad!

But his Thursday to remember was only getting started as Stone made the 25-mile trip south to the Old Course to peg it…with a set of hickory clubs! Well played, sir, well played.
