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.
