Sergio Garcia Almost Loses Club After Bad Tee Shot

During Friday’s second round of the Valero Texas Open, Sergio Garcia snapped in anger, and nearly lost his driver.

After hitting a poor tee shot, Garcia threw his Callaway driver into some woodsy area on the left, and then had trouble locating the big stick.

The Spaniard would eventually find his driver, but would go on to bogey the hole and finish his second day at TPC San Antonio even-par 72, and 2-over 146 for the tournament.

With the cut line currently at 1 over 145, it looks like that one bad shot is going to cost Sergio a payday.
