Video: See Sergio Flip Out Over A Bad Bunker Shot

While I'm not sure if I'll watch this one as many times as I watched Sergio Garcia do his best Tommy Bolt impersonation, but this little meltdown in Dubai today is pretty special.

Thanks to reader Tim for the heads up.

Okay, that was a fun clip but here's what I don't get. Who are these people who sit at home holding a video camera for hours on end? Is it so they can find a little piece of comedy gold they can post online -- NO MATTER HOW SHAKY THE PICTURES? Geoff uses plenty of these "recorded live off the air" snippets but they ALWAYS look like the videographer picked up the camera for the very first time today. Haven't these guys heard of a TRIPOD?

(And is it so much trouble to record it to your DVR and then transfer to a computer for posting online?)

@Ben - maybe the DVR's that are separate boxes (such as Tivo) allow you to download your recordings to a CD, but the ones that are internal hard drives that most CATV companies provide do not let you do that. Also though, most of the DVRs allow you to "rewind" live TV, even if you are not on actual record mode. That way if you were so inclined, you could go get the camera/phone, rewind the chosen segment, record and then post. I agee though that the quality usually is bad, but it is kind of cool way to capture things.

Ben, I am one of the guys who sits for hours on end with a video camera (aka an iPhone) in my pocket, ready to catch something of interest. For vids like these, who cares about the video quality.

Sergio has 1.5 wins that *count*.

1pt for 2008 PLAYERS

.5pt for 2004 Westchester

Westchester was such a great event back in the day I felt Sergio deserved half a point there.

I love Sergio because he annoys you soft Americans

Nothing compared to Pat Perez chopping up the 14th fairway at Pebble Beach.

Sneaky way to test the bunker sand.
02.2.2013 | Unregistered CommenterG
It annoys me that Sergio has been marginalized to the point he no longer annoys me.

Can you imagine if the Striped One had done this? I'm sure everyone on this blog would have been up in arms!

At least Sergio didn't throw a shoe....

Maybe it was the result of "Antler Spray"?

>< For vids like these, who cares about the video quality. >>

Okay, I confess: I do. Go ahead and hate me because I live in my Mom's basement counting my thumb rings. :-)

Sorry... perhaps it's the former TV new photographer in me.... I just hate the cheap-looking, amateur-hour ShakeyCam.

@Ben:
If the video looks too good, the copyright lawyers will get on the case and yank this stuff off the air right away. That's why tolerate the poor video quality. At least we get to see the action!

The telecast on TGC showed the Sergio flip out. I think they are retelecasting th last round (when this happened early (?) Sunday morning. You can Czech your local listingz.

Ben, that's funny stuff, because, IMO to really do the basement at mom's, you really have to be a Cubs fan, and go to the games, sit n the bleachers (sp? I am losing it fast) with no shirt and watch the game while spilling beer on the person in front of you.

I thought you live in Montana in a one room house and had to peddle a statinary bike to generate electric power to you battery system- maybe that was someone else I converse with who left Austin.

Just sign a deal with Pfizer and pop a Zoloft already....

Think I am wrong about ''round''.
02.3.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
dig -

About that living in a shack in Montana, I think you have Ben mixed up with Dr. Ted Kaczynski, Harvard '62, PhD Michigan '67. Although Ben will go off on a rant occasionally, I don't think he'd resort to the same methods as Ted. :-)

Still hurtin on ergio? If he was a yank, media would be lauding his competitive spirit.
02.3.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMulligan
Sergio should hang up his soft spikes. His wallet's fat enough. Biggest bust in golf history.
