Garcia was competing with Tiger Woods for the lead at TPC Sawgrass all weekend, and the two were tied for the tournament lead entering the 71st hole. And that’s when things got out of hand for the Spaniard.
Garcia went into the water twice on the par-3 17th and quadruple-bogeyed the hole. Then on the par-4 18th, Garcia went into the water again. He double-bogeyed the hole and finished the tournament tied for eighth, six shots back of Woods who won the tournament by shooting 13 under.
Garcia has struggled when going head-to-head with Woods throughout his career, and the trend continued on Sunday. In fact, Garcia blamed Woods for causing a distraction during one of his shots on the second hole on Saturday. Maybe this was karma for his complaints, though Garcia’s not about to apologize.
“It sounds like I was the bad guy here. I was the victim. I don’t have any regrets of anything,” Garcia said about the incident after the tournament.
