Sergio Garcia Hates Tiger Woods, But Still Can’t Beat Him [VIDEO]

This weekend’s Players Championship featured Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia both in title contention. Unlike Woods, Garcia has had a difficult time winning in recent years on the PGA Tour. He did win the Players Championship in 2008 and came close to winning again this year. Instead, Garcia imploded on the final two holes and finished tied for 8th. Woods, meanwhile, won hos fourth tournament of the year and is playing his best golf in years.

Although the two golfers are not close friends off the course, I was surprised to learn how much both cannot stand each other. It started when Garcia complained that Tiger could have waited to pull a club from his bag during Saturday’s third round. Garcia bogeyed the second hole and blamed his playing partner for grabbing a club while he was in his backswing. That accusation was the start of a vicious war of words.

“I waited for that. I wouldn’t say that he didn’t see that I was ready, but you do have a feel when the other guy is going to hit, and right as I was in the top of my backswing, I think he must have pulled like a 5-wood or a 3-wood and obviously everybody started screaming.”

When Tiger heard about Garcia’s accusations, he had this response.

“Obviously, he doesn’t know all the facts,” Woods told reporters. “The marshals told me he had already hit. I pulled the club and played my shot. Then I hear his comments afterward. Not really surprising that he’s complaining about something.”
