Apparently I’m an idiot and need to learn how to copy and paste properly. Thanks to the astute reader who pointed out that I tweeted the incorrect link.
Well, most of you properly missed the Hangout, but good news is you can watch it now. Bad news is I ramble. God, these things are awkward when you’re multitasking!
Thanks everyone for all the questions on the Tiger vs. Sergio saga, which went from being amusing to just bad after Sergio made a racist remark. I’m pretty much done with it, but I have a feeling this is not going to be the last we hear of the incident.
At the European Tour players’ awards dinner in England, Golf Channel’s Steve Sands asked Sergio in jest if he would have Tiger over for dinner at the U.S. Open. The Spaniard responded, “We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.”
Ugh. No. Just no. That comment will no doubt haunt Sergio for the rest of his career.
Heading into the famed 17th hole, Sergio Garcia had just tied his nemesis Tiger Woods by rolling in a birdie on the 16th. Garcia could feel the adrenaline running through him. He was striping the ball. He thought he might overshoot the green from 120 yards. Instead, his tee shot came up short and into the drink.
He re-teed and hit his wedge again. This time it reached land, but it wasn’t enough and bounced back into the pond. Ouch.
Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia were not paired together for the final round of The Players Championship, which was a blessing for everyone involved — and Sergio made that clear following the completion of the third round on Sunday morning.
Sergio being Sergio and very honest — which I’ve learned to find endearing — started it, otherwise known as The Incident — (I mean, if we’re going to be juvenile, might as well go with it…), and then, Tiger let it get to him, obviously, and snapped back an equally catty remark.
