The Players Tournament brought the 78th win for Tiger, but it’ll be remembered for Sergio Garcia’s meltdown. On Saturday, Garcia blamed Woods for a bad shot on the par-5 second hole. He said that Woods pulled a club out of his bag when Garcia was about to hit the ball. The crowd cheered and Garcia said that affected his shot.
On Sunday, heading into the 17th home, Garcia and Woods were tied for the win. Unexpectedly, Garcia hit the water, not once, but TWICE with two consecutive shot to end with a quadruple bogey. Then with a double bogey on the 18th, Garcia fell from first place to a tie for eight. ESPN’s Darren Rovell noted that Garcia’s bad playing on those two final holes cost him $800,00!
Sergio Garcia is getting all the press, but I’m sure Tiger is fine with that – he’ll just take his trophy.
