“Good riddance”: Social media roasts Sergio Garcia after tantrum

Sergio Garcia Tantrum

Sergio Garcia made headlines for all the wrong reasons after he was caught ranting at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Unhappy with a ruling, the former Masters champion appeared to confirm he wants to quit the PGA Tour for the Saudi-backed LIV series, saying: “I can’t wait to leave this tour.”

Social media was quick to jump on the Ryder Cup legend’s comments, with Garcia facing heavy criticism.

• Exclusive: New course planned to attract majors

• New track shut due to "unacceptable" greens

Some users branded him a “cry baby”, while others mocked the Spaniard for his outburst.

The first event of the LIV Series is scheduled to take place at Centurion Club near London next month, and Garcia’s representatives confirmed he has requested a release from the PGA Tour in order to play.

• PGA still in dark over Mickelson participation

• Lee Westwood finally confirms LIV request

He is the fourth player to officially reveal their plans to participate, after Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood and Richard Bland.

Several other big names, including former major winners Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson, are also thought to be on the verge of joining.
