Is this a case for a parent to give Sergio a time-out, or do we need to call in Sigmund Freud for a deep-couch session or two?
Is this (a) an ignorant juvenile rant or (b) a serious case of Tiger-golf envy?
Poll of one results: (b)
Bam! Stunned by Sergio’s cry of unfair gamesmanship by Tiger. (And for what reason would Tiger stoop to that? Don’t flatter yourself, Sergio.)
Bam! Shock over Sergio’s ignorant remark. (Does Sergio not see the microphones?)
Bam! Compounded by his off-center apology.(Wish Sergio explained how that thought even entered his head)
Bam! Then, incredibly, a double-down horrific faux pas in the apology of George O’Grady of the European Tour, who used a word I haven’t heard in probably 40 years.
What’s it all about, Sergio? (Sing, if you wish.)
I’m just expressing my dumbfoundedness here. Announcers and on-air storytellers can call Sergio a gallant swashbuckler all they want, but when someone reveals their true self, as Sergio has done here, the hype vanishes into the ether from which it was conceived.
Professional golf is often unjustly accused of racism, bigotry, and sexism. Something like this–though only from the loose mouths and unfocused minds of two individuals–is certainly evidence of the need for some counseling, sensitivity training, and perhaps even a spanking.
The iconic gentleman’s game grew some tarnish this week.
