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.

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.
