Sergio Garcia is a major champion on the PGA Tour, with 11 victories and more than $54 million in earnings.
Is his time on the road, however, coming to an end?
Garcia blew his tee shot way left of the 10th fairway into a hazard after making the turn with a 1-under 34 in his opening round of the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship. He finally located his ball after several minutes of searching.
The rules official, on the other hand, claimed he took too long.
Garcia said the timer should have started when he crossed the river since he knew his ball was on the other side and was only looking for a way to cross.
Garcia was compelled to drop despite his perseverance.
“I can’t wait to leave this tour,” he murmured under his breath, swinging his hand in disgust.
His tirade would go on.
“I can’t wait to get out of here… only a few more weeks before I’m done dealing with you.”
Watch the whole thing below:

What is he going to do? The first event of the Saudi-backed LIV Golf International series will take place at Centurion Golf Club in London on June 9-11. Lee Westwood stated on Wednesday that he had filed for a release to compete in the competition.
According to SI.com’s Bob Harig, 15 of the world’s top 100 players have committed to compete in London. Garcia is now ranked 47th, which fits the bill. The names of the players are not being revealed due to player confidentiality agreements, according to Harig’s report.
We’ll have to wait and see whether Garcia actually leaves, but based on his performance at TPC Potomac, the 2017 Masters champion could be on his way out.
