Sergio still feels bad

Sergio Garcia opened his press conference on Tuesday afternoon at Merion Golf Club saying he wanted to apologize for his racist remark directed at Tiger Woods a couple weeks ago at the European Tour players’ awards dinner. He even left a *handwritten* note in Tiger’s locker.

Sergio loses another round

Sergio loses another round

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.

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.

WTF Sergio??

WTF Sergio??

Oh boy, the Sergio Garcia vs. Tiger Woods spat continued on Tuesday night, but this time Sergio really stuck his foot in his mouth. He went out of bounds. Not good. He pulled a Fuzzy Zoeller, except worse because he should’ve learned from Fuzzy that you don’t go there. Never. Ever.

Not afraid of Tiger

Not afraid of Tiger

Well, there’s one thing Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia agree on, and that’s the anchoring ban, which the USGA and R&A announced would go into effect on January 1, 2016, but that’s pretty much where their similarities end. As we know, Tiger and Sergio really don’t like each other (or “enjoy each other’s company”).

It’s Sergio’s turn to vent in this never-ending feud, which doesn’t simply date back to The Incident at The Players, and no, he just won’t hold back (which, regardless of your opinion of Sergio, you have to respect or at least appreciate his honesty). From Golf.com’s Paul Mahoney:

Tiger and Sergio: Not even frenemies, just enemies

Tiger and Sergio: Not even frenemies, just enemies

Honestly, I’m over this whole controversy. Which one? Oh, The Incident on the second hole in the third round of The Players Championship, where Sergio accused Tiger of purposely causing a disturbance. I mean, really! Well, I guess there’s a part of me that finds it comically intriguing. So, what’s the latest twist is this never-ending episode of the Real Housewives of the PGA Tour?

Contrary to the Sports Illustrated report on Monday that quoted two marshals saying they never spoke with Tiger or told him Sergio had already hit. Turns out a volunteer did talk to Tiger, but only after he had already pulled the 5-wood, which caused the crowd to react noisily and distract Sergio, according to The Jacksonville Times-Union‘s Garry Smits

Tiger's shot on the second hole in the third round

Tiger’s shot on the second hole in the third round

Just when you thought this season of the Real Housewives of the PGA Tour, starring Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia, was over, there’s another twist. Nice work by SI’s Michael Bamberger, who tracked down the marshals working the second hole at TPC Sawgrass during the Players Championship, including Saturday when The Incident occurred. You know, the ones that supposedly told Tiger that Sergio had already hit, which led him to pull a club, resulting in the crowd to react and then distracting Sergio.

Oh no!

Oh no!

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.

Catfight!

Catfight!

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.

Oh, Sergio!

For better or worse, Sergio Garcia just can’t help himself. Only he could create drama on national television during the weather delay on Saturday at The Players Championship.

His not-so-friendly rivalry with Tiger Woods is well documented (i.e. Tiger’s text to a friend after throttling Sergio at the ’06 Open Championship: “I just bludgeoned Tweety Bird…”).

On the par-5 no. 2 at TPC Sawgrass, Tiger hooked his drive into the trees. Meanwhile, Sergio striped a beautiful shot to the middle of the fairway. As Sergio was about to hit his second shot, Tiger pulled a wood and the crowd reacted excitedly and noisily to see he was going for the green. (Because OMG, TIGER IS HITTING A WOOD!)
