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.

The 7 best #GolfWRX photos on Instagram today: 9/20/18

Published

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Aiken Golf Club, looks like y’all are good to go. All bag room and cart barn photos are 100% WRX approved.

Some puttorial handiwork from Bradley Putters, here. Acrylic + wood = nastiness.

A post that will only resonate with golfers of a certain age…

Lovely Lincoln ball makers, indeed. Nice work here from CNC Creations.

The expected singular ferrule work from Boyd Blade & Ferrule. Very nice.

ICYMI: The incredible story of a golf course artist freed from jail

Published

on

Since Max Adler of Golf Digest profiled convicted killer and golf artist Valentino Dixon in 2012, the Attica inmate has been on much of the golf audience’s collective radar.

It wasn’t just that Dixon, who never so much stepped onto a golf course in his life, dedicated himself to putting beautiful golf landscapes on paper, but rather, many, including Adler, believed he was wrongfully convicted. Jimmy Roberts, too, profiled Dixon, albeit in video form, and was of the same mind.

Adler and Roberts both played a small part in what happened this week, as the publicity generated by their work alerted wrongful conviction advocates to Dixon’s case: Dixon’s murder conviction was vacated.

It’s an incredible story of both justice served (albeit woefully late), and a surprising passion. If you’re unfamiliar with Dixon’s work, you can see some of it in this YouTube video by tinad426, presumably featuring the photos of his drawings taken by Golf Digest. (Many outlets refer to Dixon’s art as “paintings.” This is incorrect as his medium in colored pencil: he wasn’t allowed to use paint and paintbrushes)

“The guys [in prison] can’t understand,” Dixon said. “They always say I don’t need to be drawing this golf stuff. I know it makes no sense, but for some reason my spirit is attuned to this game.”

A quick recap of the case: Dixon had been serving a minimum 38-year-to-life sentence since August, 1991, for the shooting of 17-year-old Torriano Jackson, allegedly following an argument about a girl.

While Dixon admitted he was at the crime scene, he claimed was in a nearby liquor store at the time of the killing. Georgetown University’s Prisons and Justice Initiative found that a gunpowder test on Dixon’s clothes had come back negative and the prosecution failed to share the information with the defence.

Additionally, Lamarr Scott told local media he was in fact the shooter, and has maintained that he, not Dixon, was guilty in the years since.

He was never arrested for the crime. However, Scott, in jail for a separate crime, was given the opportunity to formally confess to the crime this week. He did so, and Dixon was exonerated hours later.

“Maybe he’ll even take up golf,” Golf Digest’s Max Adler quoted his subject of six years ago as saying.

Let’s hope he does.
