Shot Of The Year: Sergio Garcia
By mustang6560 on 3/25/13
I'd like to nominate Sergio Garcia's backwards shot from a tree for the 2013 Shot of the Year. I've seen a lot of impressive golf shots in my career as a golf fan, but I've never seen a golfer hit a golf shot from a tree. Unless Bubba Watson hits another Shot Heard 'Round The World at Augusta National, I'd be surprised if Sergio's shot isn't a lock to win the award.

I could see him losing points for walking off the course like a baby. It's like.. anytime he does something to get fans excited, he has to shoot himself in the foot. I realize he was playing poorly, but it was FINAL round. Just finish. One more night in Orlando isn't going to kill you.
a) it was a chip out
b) he made double bogey
c) he WD two holes later
4) it didn't look all that difficult, just unusual
The shot was impressive, but y'all are both right - the fact he withdrew takes away from the shot.
I agree with legitimatebeef. He should have just taken a drop. What if he fell out the tree and broke his leg?
He'd still be a millionaire.

Foolish decision that had no benefit. I just hope he didn't injure himself.
that's why he WD'd. he said he hurt his shoulder. he looked fine after he jumped out though, so I think he just gave up, the baby.
He injured his shoulder, then play was suspended because of lightning during which time the soreness in his shoulder grew so he withdrew. If all that's true then his decision was a wise one.
ever climb a tree in golf shoes?
Have you ever been to a Turkish Bathe House?
In my humble opinion Sergio Garcia is the "total unprofessional Golf Pro", when I saw the video all I could think was that he was somehow trying to make a shot that could go down on history similar to Seve's awesome shots, he got it somewhat done, I am sure he went "over time" on the shot but he did something no one has ever seen but then he quit, he was already going to get paid for playing on the weekend, figures!!
