The Tiger Woods/Sergio Garcia feud — which doesn’t just date back to The Incident at The Players Championship, rather it has a long history spanning over more than a decade of bad blood– was an amusing and relatively trivial soap opera until it turned ugly on Tuesday night.

Ugh. No. Just no. That comment will no doubt haunt Sergio for the rest of his career.
