Just when I thought it was ok to like Sergio he does this and totally reminds me of why I despised him for so long. Thank you Sergio for bringing me back to reality.

European Tour not messing around this year.  Suspension looming?

I set it at +/- 90 days.

Good! If it was the weak US tour he would had got away with it. Unruly behaviour is not accepted or the norm on the ET unlike the US tour.

Unacceptable from a professional. Even in college walking in a through line was taboo and the pros still pay attention to them, and pat down their own spike marks after holing out.

JT was not suspended a couple of years ago, so I guess no.

I heard he damaged the green due to his bottom lip dragging along the ground. He continues to act like a 13 year old trapped in an adults body.

As much as I feel a suspension would be warranted on this one, heís got star and drawing power so it is out of the question I think from the European Tour and the PGA prob wouldnít touch it either. All about the money.

As dumb as this is i feel sorry for Sergio.  As well as he hit it yesterday heíd have shot 64 if he made even 40 % inside 10 ft.  He made zero. And hasnít really made a putt since winning then masters.  

I wonder sometimes if this isnít hell for some people.  Punishment from a past life. ď hey youíre the best ball striker on earth. But youíll never make a putt ď.

Same with Hideki. Aside from Poulterís twitter rant, no penalty was issued as far as I can find even though an official had to fix the damage.

How can you feel sorry for him? He’s holding the putter, and he’s hitting the ball towards the hole. If it doesn’t go in it’s his fault, no-one else’s. There’s not some sort of massive conspiracy against him. He’s simply a poor putter with an even poorer attitude, and deserves zero sympathy.

I feel sorry for him because Iíve lived it.  Albeit on a much smaller scale.  But same thing.

His attitude yesterday during all this was great.  He joked the whole round.  Apparently today it came to a head.   I havenít seen the video.  So Iím only speaking in the abstract.   The bigger picture of the torment of hitting 14-16 greens a round. With good proximity and not making a single putt.  For years.  Itís enough to drive anyone over the edge.

Iím able to have sympathy for the guy without excusing what he did.  He was wrong. Should have been dqed and fined. And no doubt will pay in embarrassment.  But I still feel for the situation.
