Sergio Garcia shamed the game of golf after last weekend's loogie-hocking incident during the 13th hole of CA Championship. His smug attitude already soured some fans and media since his arrival on the tour, and now even some of his minimal supporters have turned on him. (Could you imagine if Joe Buck was broadcasting? He would've completely lost it on the air. Then gone home, punched his wife, had an aneurysm, and died.) It's a bit ironic, though, that a sport that prides itself on gentlemanly conduct is also a game that, on an amateur level, is one that promotes more public urination than any other sport. Has anyone ever played a round of golf either on a public or private course and not pissed on a tree or the side of their golf cart? But spitting — bad form.
