Koepka Calls Out Sergio Garcia For 'Acting Like A Child' During Tournament

Brooks Koepka says that Sergio Garcia 'acted like a child' during the Saudi International over the weekend.

Garcia was disqualified for internationally damaging greens during the third round of the tournament. The Spaniard later apologised, via a statement, saying, "In frustration, I damaged a couple of greens, for which I apologise for, and I have informed my fellow players it will never happen again."

Speaking to the Playing Through podcast on Tuesday, Koepka - who was also playing in the tournament - criticised Garcia.

"Ugh, it's frustrating as a player to see, to act like that, to disrespect everybody," said the three-time major winner.

"To act like a child out there is not cool. It's not setting a good example and it's not cool to us, showing us no respect or anybody else.

"That's just Sergio acting like a child. It's unfortunate that he's got to do that and complain. Everybody's got to play the same golf course. I didn't play very good, but you didn't really see anybody else doing that. You're 40-years-old [Garcia is 39] so you gotta grow up eventually.
