Sergio Garcia Punishes His Misbehaving Putter

Sergio Garcia is an excitable guy. Sometimes, he can use his passion for good like he does at the Ryder Cup — as fans of United States golf fans can attest — but we usually see his temper flare in less-than-ideal situations. Another such situation arose on Saturday at the BMW Championship. 

On his way to a 4-over par round of 76, Sergio decided he had had enough with his flatstick, throwing it towards his bag originally before taking out his frustrations further on a later hole. The club became unsuitable for play, so Sergio had to start putting with his wedge. 

Garcia sits at 3-under par for the tournament heading into Sunday’s final round. Dustin Johnson has opened up a three-shot lead over Paul Casey. J.B. Holmes, Roberto Castro, Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar are among the chasers back in the pack.

Here are the full third round highlights from the PGA Tour.
