To find Sergio Garcia’s latest official statements, we have to go back in time to his retirement after the first lap of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. His decision sparked controversy. So much so that the DP World Tour came to hypothesize a fine against the Spaniard (procedure of which traces have been lost).
El Nino has decided to break his silence following the statements made by Fred Couples, but he took the opportunity to touch on another topic close to his heart. But let’s go in order. Interviewed on the sidelines of the Hoag Classic, the PGA Tour Champions tournament that has just ended, which saw the return to victory of one of my all-time idols, Ernie Els, the American player literally shot zero on his friend (?) Phil Mickelson and about Garcia.
Couples said his problem with LIV players is that they attack the Pga Tour (“this strikes me a little bit” cit.). After that, Bum Bum called Mickelson “an idiot” and Garcia “a clown.” Well, we don’t (yet) hear from any responses from Phil.
Sergio, on the other hand, answered him. From Tucson, where his GC Fireballs won the Liv Golf Season 2 Round Team Tournament.
Sergio Garcia, statements
“That’s it” “It’s disappointing because I don’t know where it’s going” “But it’s about Freddie, he can say what he likes” “But we too can say what we like” “I think that, after all, his life is his life, and mine, since we are talking about me, is my life” “So, I don’t think he should comment on what the other guys and I should have done, because we didn’t tell him what he had to do.” It is possible that the clarification will be concluded in person, given that on April 4, Garcia and Couples will have dinner together.
This year, in fact, the six LIV players who have their Green Jacket in their wardrobe in Augusta will be able to participate in the Masters Champions Dinner. And Sergio Garcia will sit at that table. “I will be there because I earned it, because I deserve it” “And I’m going to have fun, and I hope the other kids want the same.”
