Angry Sergio Garcia shanks one out of the waste areas at Pinehurst

Oh no, Sergioooooo.

Sergio Garcia is often a punching bag at the major championships, and those folks were treated to a nice little moment of schadenfreude during his second round of the U.S. Open. Garcia's tee ball went wandering off into some of those "native sandy areas" we've been hearing about all week at Pinehurst. You can either get by with a basic hardpan lie, or you can get screwed and have your ball land in or against some junk (we saw Ken Duke make an outrageous par after getting an obscene lie earlier on Friday).

Unfortunately for El Nino, his ball settled in the area of a sizable clump of wiregrass that didn't make things any easier off the waste area. But he still went right after it, playing what looked to be an attempted cut shot from right to left.

The results were less than ideal, and Sergio was not pleased, taking a swipe in anger at the clump of wiregrass on two occasions after the shot.

Roger Maltbie called it a "shank" first, Sergio!

At least that bit of grass will be less of an obstruction for the next guy and thank you for taking it out on the flora and not one of the microphones like two years ago at Olympic.
