Sergio Garcia Whines About Masters And Augusta National

Sergio Garcia Should Probably Spend More Time Practicing And Less Time Whining. Maybe Then, He'd Win A Major.

Sergio Garcia had some interesting words about the 2009 Masters, which just finished up on Sunday afternoon.

Apparently, the course was not to Sergio's liking. In his words:

"I don't like it, to tell you the truth. I don't think it's fair, and it's just too tricky. Even when it's dry, you still get mud balls in the middle of the fairway, so it's too much of a guessing game."

When asked what they should change at Augusta, he responded with "I don't care, they can do whatever they want. It's not my problem. I just come here and play, and then go home, that's about it."

Funny thing about the Masters this year, however, was that it wasn't considered particularly tough. In fact, the scores would indicate quite the opposite. 3 men finished the tournament tied at 12 under par, a score that would have at least tied for the best score every year since 2002. Generally, players found the course to be easier than in the past. In fact, that -12 score has only been beaten in the Masters 5 times in the past 30 years. Padraig Harrington even followed up Garcia's interview by countering his claim, saying that he's "baffled", thinks the course is fantastic, it wasn't difficult this week, and even went so far as to say that it was as easy as it would ever be.

Obviously, Sergio needs to stop whining, and get his head screwed on straight. There's obviously a reason that he's the #3 ranked player in the world, yet still hasn't won a major. It's because of excuses like this, and a complete lack of the mental fortitude that it takes to win a major championship.

I hope they find a way to un-invite him next year, regardless of ranking. If he has that much contempt for a tradition as great as the Masters, then he doesn't belong anyway.

After he lost the British Open last year, he whined about having to play againt "a lot of players out there... more than just the field of golfers" (referring to bad bounces, course maintenance, and the phase of the moon).  Really, the phase of the moon??  I could get used to listening to my 4 year old cousin whine after hearing this dude.

Sergio Garcia is an asshole. However, he apologized for these words the day after. He will most likely win a major in the coming years. Everybody thought he had matured last year after his win at the Players; not quite apparently. Right, he won the Players, sometimes referred as the 5th major. He won 7 times on the PGA tour, 8 times on the European; for those in this country who don't know what Europe is, it is a continent accross the Atlantic Ocean. Yes he's number 3 at the official world golf ranking; BTW, this is not a vote, it's the average of points per tournament accumulated over a rolling 2 year period

Number 3? Who the heck votes on the rankings, the BCS?  Win something. Why are they even interviewing him? "So Sergio how do you feel about being the most over-rated golfer since Ted Knight in Caddyshack?"

He's #3! I think it funny, "Sergio" call me by one name though I haven't won anything. I know many Euros and So. Americans do this mainly in soccer, but those guys tend to back it up. With the way he whines, he'll probably have to win more than one major to be taken seriously.
