Sergio Garcia is a trendy favorite to get his first major this week at the Masters. With his nemesis Tiger Woods absent, and his streaking play the past eight months or so, Garcia's odds surged and plenty of media members picked him to get a green jacket.
Gah! I cringed and yelped loudly as soon as saw this happen.
Augusta is really hard. The greens are fast. They can be tricky to read. But missing the ENTIRE cup, not even brushing the lip, from what appears to be just outside two feet seems impossible.
That two-to-three footer, however, is the classic #SergioStroke, as Yahoo's Shane Bacon termed it. A tense and tentative little jab that just gives a shot away. It's the first of this week, and hopefully for his sake, the most egregious.
Sergio is now even-par through his first 15 holes on Thursday.
