GMAC Questions Wisdom Of The Rory McIlroy-Sergio Garcia 'Man-grab' At Augusta

GMAC Questions Wisdom Of The Rory McIlroy-Sergio Garcia 'Man-grab' At Augusta
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Graeme McDowell has expressed his own views on Rory McIlroy's issues at Augusta, primarily that crap third round while partnered with Sergio Garcia, on the Golf Channel. He sort of blames Sergio.

Via Irish Golf Desk:

“The fact that they both played badly never helps,” McDowell said when asked if playing with a friend like Garcia blunted McIlroy’s competitive edge. “When you are playing with a friend and you both start to go low, you can drag each other along for sure. But the fact that they are both out there playing badly, good pals, hugging as we saw, having a bit of a man-grab on the 12th green together, it was all a little bit too fun for a Saturday in a major championship.

“When they are not in there with a chance to compete on Sunday and perhaps, if there had been more of an edge to it, I agree. If Rory had gone out there with someone he might not have known so well, he might not have kind of got dragged down the way he did in the end
