Thursday was not a good day for PGA golfer Sergio Garcia.

Garcia, who has won 11 PGA titles in his career including a Masters title, had a rough day on the greens. After making a 1-under 34 in his opening round of the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship, he hit his tee shot into a hazard, which took him several minutes to find his ball.

Garcia was later penalized by PGA officials for taking too long to find his ball, which did not sit well with him.

“Can’t wait to get outta here,” he was overheard saying. “Just a couple more weeks until I don’t have to deal with you anymore.”

What did Garcia mean by what he said? Well, first of all, he’s not retiring. He is, however, about to go to the LIV Golf International series which is coming up, on June 9-11 at Centurion Golf Club in London.

Garcia and 14 other PGA players have committed to playing. However, due to contractual agreements, their names can’t be announced yet according to Bob Haring of Sports Illustrated, who first reported the story.

As a player, Garcia, who is ranked as the 47th best player in the world, has made over $54 million as a pro, and many thought at one time that he would be Tiger Woods‘ rival, but that never really materialized.

A lot of PGA fans are calling Garcia a diva and calling out his bad behavior.

Garcia is not exactly a fan favorite as you can tell and he won’t be missed by many if he decides to leave the PGA Tour.
