Sergio's Putter Is Really Awesome
A bad putter will be a bad putter at the worst possible times, and that is what you just saw with Sergio Garcia.
He just keeps striping golf shots left and right around Oakland Hills, but that flat-stick is continuing to be his least favorite fan (And that is saying a lot).
On the 17th hole, sitting at even-par for the tournament and a shot back of J.B. Holmes, El Nino four-putted for a double-bogey. Sure, it wasn't as bad as Mr. Yips, Vijay Singh, five-putting his last hole today to miss the cut, but it was ugly.
This is why I might be in the group that says Garcia could never win a major. Sure he has a lot of talent, and sure he hits the ball as good as anyone on tour, but that four-putt right there will be in his cabeza for the rest of the week. I guess only time will let us know how he bounces back.
