Sergio On The Market Again…For A Caddie

It was romantic while it lasted, and thankfully it ended the right way, but Sergio Garcia caddy/GF Katharina Boehm has quit looping for her man after guiding him to victory late last year.

Bob Harig reports:

"I wanted to keep going, but she fired me," Garcia joked during a media session at Abu Dhabi Golf Club. "It was something she wanted to do since we started dating, and I thought that would be a good week, being the end of the year and maybe a little bit more relaxed."

Sooo... when Sergio relaxes and has fun... he wins...but...(hold on, I think I get it)...when he gets super uptight about winning and turns into a miserable, grumpy jerk, he...loses? Loses, yes, that's right, he loses! Wow, I get it!

Anybody here think Sergio finally gets it, too? If so where do I place my bet for the majors this year?
Maybe Sergio will win a major if he is a third-round lurker and shoots the round of his life on Sunday. However if he were holding the lead after 3 -then I would forecast 75+ when he goes into uptight mode after first missed putt.

I am not rooting against him, but other than the Ryder Cup he has done nothing more than an accomplished journeyman. It would be nice if he can change his attitude and fulfill some degree of his original promise, and perhaps as importantly - take some enjoyment out of it.

Am I mistaken or is his girlfriend 22 years old? She graduated played college golf in the US from 2009-2013...

"...he has done nothing more than an accomplished journeyman."

That's a good one!

Personally not really a big fan of Sergio but some snippets from his resume:

- over 300 weeks in OWGR top-10
- 9 PGA tour wins
- 10 Euro Tour wins
- combined on those tours lost another 8 events in playoffs
- won another 8 events between Asia and South Africa
- top-4 finishes in all 4 majors
- 18 top-10's in majors
- OVER $51,000,000 in on-course earnings in his career
- 6 Ryder Cup teams with 18 points scored

Journeymen don't even play 18 majors in a career, much less...

Won Greensboro with a local caddie (?) on the bag. Won this other one with the girlfriend on the bag. To Icon's point, Serg' oughta think about continuing to wing it on the caddie front.

@DTF +2

We should be so lucky to enjoy the lifestyle of such a "journeyman".

I would have settled for just being his agent at 20%!

Whatdaya say Johnnycz? That would have been worth it, right?
Sergio's 33 birthday was a week ago's amazing how closely Sergio's career has tracked Phil's at the same age. Phil won his first major at age 33, maybe Sergio will too.

@ DTF I for one, would not be disappointed.
@ Del i stand corrected. poor choice of words on my part. should have gone with something about not fulfilling his potential.

Journeyman? So he's just like Zach Johnson?

I'll caddy for him, but no tongue.
No worries Ted ;0). I just think that journeyman term gets thrown around a little loosely. Certainly given the way he burst onto the scene I'd say about 99% of folks would have expected Sergio to have bagged a major or three before age 30, for sure.

Can you imagine the money? I mean with endorsements and appearance fees he's gotta be over $100,000,000 gross doesn't he?

He is more honest than most, doesn't hide his emotions and the media hates him. Also, he hit a good putt at 18 at Carnoustie.

I hope he wins a major or 2.
